History

From 1910 until the end of World War II in 1945, Korea was occupied by Japan. With the beginning of the East-West conflict, the country split into North Korea and South Korea in 1948. In the Korean War (1950–53), on behalf of the United Nations (UN), the United States and other countries supported South Korea against North Korea and its ally, the People’s Republic of China. The war left several million dead and great destruction. It ended in a truce and peace negotiations failed. To this day, a heavily fortified and closely guarded armistice line near the 38th parallel separates the two states. Check behealthybytomorrow to see Asia Early History.

It was not until the beginning of the 1970s and the beginning of the 1990s that inter-Korean government contacts were made again. In 2000 the heads of state visited each other for the first time. In the period that followed, the first meetings of separated families were possible, which had been separated by the Korean War. South Korean companies built a tourism center in North Korea and an industrial zone in the border town of Kaesŏng. However, they are now closed again. The North Korean nuclear weapons program and military incidents hampered lasting understanding.

The first President of South Korea Rhee Syngman (from 1948) ruled authoritarian. After student unrest, he was overthrown by the military in 1961. The junta secured its power with the help of the secret service and suppressed the opposition. Protests forced a return to democracy in 1987. But it wasn’t until 1990 that an opposition politician, Kim Young Sam (* 1927, † 2015), was elected president. Gradually, reforms were implemented that curtailed the influence of the military. With Kim Dae Jung (1998-2003) began a cautious approach to North Korea.

Accusations of corruption have repeatedly led to internal political tensions and mass protests. In 2004 and again in 2016, parliament tried to remove the head of state. In 2004, however, the constitutional court reinstated Roh Moo Hyun (* 1946, † 2009). President Park Geun Hye (* 1952) remained deposed. In 2018, she was sentenced to 24 years in prison for bribery and abuse of power. Park was one of the Conservatives who ruled the country from 2008-18. With the election of Moon Jae In (* 1953) as President (2017) there was a change of power to the Democratic Party.
