North and South Koreas are two disjointed countries with common history and language. Formerly called the ‘Hermit kingdom’, influenced by Buddhism and Taoism, Korea brings in the naming tradition of typical Asian loyalty and devotion.

Korean Background

Located on the Korean Peninsula, Korea is an East Asian territory with the population of 75 million people. The 38th parallel divides the territory into two sovereign countries: North Korea with the capital of Pyongyang, and South Korea with the capital of Seoul. The division came to pass at the end of WW II when the former Soviet Union and the US divided the territory, and as the Cold War progressed, South Korea supported by the US bloomed, whereas North Korea led by Kim Jong-il
