The most popular sport in Korea is football (soccer). A South Korean team has qualified for the FIFA World Cup finals eight times, culminating in their first title in 2010 for their under-17 women's team. The Korea Professional Football League (K-League) is the oldest domestic professional football league in Asia. The country co-hosted the 2002 FIFA World Cup Championship along with Japan; they managed to make the semifinals that year (their best result so far).

'''No non-offensive joke possible''':

It's a truism that dog meat was a popular delicacy in South Korea. A quick way to get an "Oooohhh!" from the audience in a PanelShow is to joke about it. [[ValuesDissonance Animal welfare groups scream "animal cruelty". The Koreans scream "cultural imperialism" back.]] Any argument goes nowhere fast. The Western aversion to eating dogs is so ingrained that it's ripe for StealthParody, as [[http://www.joeyskaggs.com/html/dog.html Joey Skaggs]] proved in a famous prank. On the other hand, there is evidence that younger Koreans are turning against it. Nowadays dog meat is mostly eaten by the older population, as the opinion that it is animal cruelty is getting more and more popular. Note that non-dog eating Koreans will be offended if another person implies that all or most Koreans like dog meat.

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. 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).
