One of countries of Asia beside China and Japan. For 5000 years, RULED by Korean kings and presidents. Has great language called, Korean that allows you to pronounce words that both Chinese and Japanese cannot say.

There is myth that Koreans are desperate for Kimchi, but the reality is absolutely different since some Koreans hate Kimchi for some reasons.

If you are a North Korean, "too bad because of your freaking communist country. lets see how good you can live with your Kim- Jung Il."

If you are a South Korean, "Well... at least you don't have to follow a midget."
Let's try to say "MacDonald" in three different languages!!

First Chinese
- Ma Do No

Second, Japanese
- Ma Gro Na Ri Do

Last, Korean
- Mac Do nal D

Well... true that when some Koreans try to pronounce "sheet", they pronounce as "Shit".

A country that, in World War 2, was divided by Soviet Russia and the United States without the consent of the people. As a result, the north half is now a communist dictatorship where a midget named Kim Jong Il is playing with nukes. In addition, south koreans are distrustful and unappreciative of the U.S. troops within Korea. Nearly as sad as wat happened in Iraq. Contrary to the belief of many chinese people, Korea was not part of china. Part of China was the northernmost part of Korea.
Chinese guy: Ummm... Korea was all under Chinese rule once. Yeah.
American guy: Uhh, not really. Btw, when will u stop being communist?
Chinese guy: Umm..... For teH ReD ArMy!
American guy: Just go back to working at the Panda Express.

South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (or ROK) and often referred to as Korea (Korean: ????, IPA: t??.han.min.?uk?, Hanja: ????), listen (help·info)) is a presidential republic in East Asia, occupying the southern half of the Korean Peninsula. Also known as the "Land of the Morning Calm", it is neighboured by China to the west, Japan to the east and North Korea to the north, with whom it was united until 1945. South Korea's capital and largest city is Seoul, the world's second largest metropolitan city.

Korea is one of the oldest civilizations in the world, with its foundation dating back to 2333 BC by the legendary Dangun. Archaeological research shows that the peninsula was inhabited as early as the Lower Paleolithic. Following the unification of the Three Korean Kingdoms under Silla in 668 AD, Korea went through the Goryeo and Joseon Dynasty as one nation until the end of the Korean Empire in 1910. After division, South Korea was established in 1948 and has since rapidly recovered from the Japanese invasion (1910–1945) and Korean war (1950–1953), operating a successful and stable democracy since the first direct election in 1987.

South Korea is a major economic power and one of the wealthiest countries in Asia. It had one of the world's fastest growing economies since the 1960s, now highly developed and one of the three largest2 in Asia and 13th largest3 in the world. Forming the G20 industrial nations and the world's top ten exporters, it is a member of the United Nations, WTO, OECD, APEC, EAS and ASEAN+3, defined as a High Income Nation by the World Bank and an Advanced Economy by the IMF and CIA. A major non-NATO ally, it has the world's sixth largest armed forces and one of the ten largest defence budgets in the world. Nicknamed as an Asian tiger, it is still among the world's fastest growing developed countries4 and a Next Eleven state, forecasted to surpass the income per capita of Germany, UK and France in 16 years.5 Today, its success story is known as the "Miracle on the Han River", a role model for many developing countries.6

South Korea has a strong economic, political and cultural influence in Asia and is one of the world's leading countries in science and technology.7 It has a very advanced and modern infrastructure8 and is a world leader in information technology such as electronics, semiconductors, LCD displays, computers and cell phones, led by Samsung and LG. Home of the world's third largest steel producer, POSCO, it is the world's largest shipbuilder and one of the world's top five automobile producers, headed by Hyundai and Kia. It is also a leading country in engineering, construction, machinery, textiles, petrochemicals, biotechnology and robotics.

South Korea is one of the most modernized and urban countries in the world, although it is considered as a third-world country because of North Korea, where things are as undeveloped as China.

In Korea, Chinese and English is taught in schools, just like how French is taught in Canada.

Koreans may be mistaken for Japanese and Chinese people by non-Asians, but other Asians can tell them apart. They have super Asian powers! Lol xD Joking. Koreans are super cool.
Koreans come from a country called Korea which is located just below China, but are often found in many parts of America.

A peninsula in East Asia. A country renown for it's beautiful women and interesting culture. It's often compared to Japan, because of a somewhat hostile feeling between the two countries. If one compares Korean and Japanese women, he/she will find that Japanese women often tend to look like sluts while most Korean women have a fresh beauty. There are many ugly women in Japan because of incest. This is not a joke, it's for real. This could be seen as a negative effect from Japan's perverted sex culture. Japan is well known as the "country of fetish and taboo" by many. It's porn is centered around incest, rape, abuse, bsdm etc. Korean and Japanese food is also often compared but this is pointless seeing as it's all asian food eaten with chopsticks and rice. Japan is known for it's anime while Korea is known for it's wonderful soap operas and movies.
A: Look! Korea is raping the shit out of Japan!!
B: Holy shit! Japan is liking it!
A: Duh..Japan is a country of taboo and incest.
B: Ahhh..I see.

A peninsula right next to China and Russia, and with Japan right across the sea. Korean people are smart, because in Korea, the parents actually push their kids, not like crappy America.

Korean people are also game freaks. They are the world's top Starcraft players. They also created addictive games scuh as Maple Story, a game that is one of the most addictive games in the world.

Korean food is good. Nuff' said.
A: Dude, who's that funtwo guy? He looks Korean.
B: He is Korean, numbnut. How did you know?
A: He has like 5 games on his desk.

Korea is often looked down upon by weaboos as a “copycat” of Japan. Unfortunately, Japan holds a long history of adopting Korean and Chinese culture to be their own.

Even in ancient times. During the Three Kingdoms period of Korean history, the Hwarang invented KumDo (or “Living Blade”) a style of sword mastery. The life style and martial arts of the Hwarang would eventually be adopted by the Samurai lords in Japan, and named “Kendo”.

Japan and Korea, though on fairly good terms in modern day, have had an ill past, especially during World War 2 where Japan commit countless atrocities against Korea. Many of these atrocities are immortalized in Korean museums where you can see images of Korean women walking many miles with stones in their dress to stone Japanese soldiers.

Koreans are proud and noble people, and are very reserved. They have good food, which can often be quite spicy.

Korea is also home to Seoul, one of the worlds busiest cities. The city has a population of 10 million, living in a fairly small space.

A recent census in the U.S.A. showed roughly 600,000 Koreans living within its borders.

Korea is also home to innovation, and produces some of the worlds most intuitive electronic and communicative devices. Unlike Japan, Korea focuses more on inventions of useful application, and bringing people together.

Their language is also considered one of the most mathematical in the world.
Kimchi is a delectable dish made by the Koreans, it is their national dish.
