South Korea

History of South Korea

The Republic of Korea, the formal name for South Korea, has a turbulent and colorful past that has influenced its current identity. Although people have lived on the peninsula since prehistoric times, the Goguryeo, Baekje, and Silla kingdoms’ rise during the Three Kingdoms period (57 BCE–668 CE) provided the groundwork for Korean civilization. Significant cultural and technological developments occurred during this time, including as the acceptance of Buddhism and the creation of the distinctive Korean alphabet. Cultural flourishing and the construction of distinct Korean cultural and artistic traditions, such as the creation of the Tripitaka Koreana and the rise of celadon pottery, persisted during the Unified Silla period (668-935 CE) and the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392).

South Korea’s Rise to Prosperity

Significant changes occurred in Korea during the 20th century, chief among them being the Japanese occupation that lasted from 1910 to 1945 and stifled Korean culture while taking use of its resources. Korea was freed when Japan was defeated in World War II, but it was then split at the 38th parallel, creating North Korea in the north and South Korea in the south. Following this, the terrible Korean War (1950–1953) resulted in an armistice rather than a peace treaty, officially keeping the Korean Peninsula at war. Known as the “Miracle on the Han River,” South Korea emerged from the war as a war-torn nation and became a global economic powerhouse in the decades that followed. This was made possible by rapid industrialization and technological innovation. Nowadays, South Korea is well known for its cutting-edge technology, dynamic culture, and democratic system of government.
