South Korea spent a while after that war under various authoritarian governments, but people kept protesting, demanding democracy and freedom (some of which, like the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gwangju_massacre Gwangju Massacre]], caused the loss of many innocent civilian lives). Finally, after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_Democracy_Movement June Democracy Movement]] of the 1987 (helped by global exposure on the run-up to the 1988 UsefulNotes/OlympicGames to be held at the capital, UsefulNotes/{{Seoul}}), South Korea is now a completely democratic country in its [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_South_Korea#Sixth_Republic_1987–present sixth republic incarnation]]. It is also one of the "Asian Tigers", making a ''major'' economic leap in the 1980s (the social structure changed from a mostly agricultural to tertiary industry in less than 40 years).

South Korea figures prominently in any ''Series/{{Lost}}'' episode centering on Sun and Jin. These sequences are notable in that they are entirely in Korean (with subtitles) rather than employing a TranslationConvention. Sun is played by Yunjin Kim, who achieved fame in South Korea before coming to the US. Jin, however, is a FakeNationality, played by American Daniel Dae Kim.[[note]] As noted in many interviews, Daniel grew up in an English-speaking household and speaks almost no Korean; Yunjin had to teach him all of his lines phonetically[[/note]]

South Korea is a close ally of the United States (who led the UN forces that saved the country in UsefulNotes/TheKoreanWar), but has problems with Japan for [[UsefulNotes/ImperialJapan some rather]] [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII obvious reasons]]. These include the issue of "comfort women", women from Korea (plus China and a few other countries) forced into prostitution and sex slavery by the Japanese, which the Japanese government continues to deny. Then there's the issue of Japan trying to stomp out Korean language and culture, replacing it with Japanese language and culture. Even without UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, [[ArchEnemy Japan and Korea have never liked each other very much]]. Despite these historical issues, the two countries tend more toward TeethClenchedTeamwork these days due to their shared interest in keeping UsefulNotes/NorthKorea, UsefulNotes/{{Russia}}, and UsefulNotes/{{China}} in check.

The Republic of Korea, far better known as South Korea, is a country in North East Asia. Its capital and largest city is UsefulNotes/{{Seoul}}. After spending thirty-five years under Japanese occupation, the Korean peninsula was divided in two after the UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets showed up.
