History (역사)

Early History (2333 BCE-1392 AD)

According to Unified Korea-icon Korean mythology, a deiy akin to Tengri named Dangun was said to have established Gojoseon-icon Gojoseonball around 2340~2330 BC. After he was killed by Hanball, there were several other nations until there were four countryballs, called Goguryeo-icon Goguryeoball, Silla-icon Sillaball, Baekje-icon Baekjeball, and Gaya-icon Gayaball. Gaya-icon Gaya, which was in-between Sillaball and Baekjeball, later fell, and the three kingdoms constantly fought each other.

Silla eventually conquered the rest and made Silla-icon Unified Sillaball. However, Silla-icon Sillaball had lost the Manchurian and the Maritime Provinces of Siberia, which had originally been the land of Goguryeo-icon Goguryeoball, and it was occupied by Tang Chinaball. In this period, he built many Buddhist temples. Furthermore, it lived as unified for centuries, until Taebongball and Later Baekje-icon Baekjeball were born, and constantly invaded their father. Taebongball was killed by Goryeoball. Goryeoball also killed Later Baekjeball. Silla-icon Sillaball was suffering by then and committed suicide.

Meanwhile, north, there was Balhae-icon Balhaeball, which was  Goguryeo-icon Goguryeoball's descendants. Balhae fought hard with neighboring countries and bordered with Silla to south, Bohai Bay (in the Yellow Sea) to west, Manchuria to north, and the Okhotsk sea to east. Balhae led  the Korean's heyday. However, Balhae was eventually destroyed by Liaoball, the descendants went to Goryeo.

Goryeo-icon Goryeo was very indulged in Buddhism and made many temples. This was the age when many Buddhist temples and infrastructures were made. Also, Goryeo-icon Goryeoball tried to restore the Manchurian region. However, unfortunately, the Mongol Empireball invaded Goryeo-icon \ Goryeoball and destroyed most of the flourishing culture. Much of the temple still remains destroyed or gone after the Mongolians burnt them down. Goryeo-icon Goryeoball's soldiers fought hard, but the government surrendered and they had to do it too.

Goryeo-icon Goryeoball was on the verge of becoming completely Mongol Empire-icon Mongolian Empireball until Joseon-icon Joseonball was born. Just before Joseon-icon Joseonball was made, the Mongolian Empire fell and disappeared.

Joseon Dynasty Joseon-icon (1392-1897/1910)

Joseon-icon Joseonball had the most flourishing dynasty of all, and it built massive lavish buildings and treasures. It was during this dynasty that many aspects of Korean culture were developed. The complex honorifics system used today derives from this era, and in the 15th Century, Sejong the Great developed the Korean script Hangeul.

Joseon-icon Joseonball also liked the current Chinese dynasty Ming-icon Ming Dynastyball and sent many treasures and missionaries to China. In 1592, a huge Japanese invasion landed on Korea (임진왜란). When things were gone and there was no hope, an Admiral called Yi Sun-Shin (이순신) pushed the huge 330 Japanese ships back to Japan with only 12 ships of his own. Yi Sun-sin is still considered as a national hero even today in South Koreaball.(And North Koreaball.)

Later, Joseon-icon Joseon was invaded by Qing-icon Qing China, because Joseon-icon Joseonball refused to help the new Qing-icon Qing Dynastyball, but instead helped the dying Ming-icon Ming Dynasty. Joseon-icon Joseonball managed to push them back again, and had some peaceful ages, but had to pay tributes to the Qing. Korea eventually gained full independence from China in 1895. It became Korea-Empire-icon Korean Empireball in 1897 and wrote its own constitution while strengthening Friendship with Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball to weaken the influence of Japanese-Empire-icon Imperial Japanball.

Colonial Era Japanese-Empire-icon (1910-1945)

Later, in 1910, (진짜 개같죠)→Japanese-Empire-icon Imperial Japanball forced upon a set of treaties and killed Korea-Empire-icon Korean Empireball. They colonized Koreaball for 35 years (1910~1945) and raped and tortured and massacred many of their people. They even used them for human experiments, cannon fodder and forced labor. South Korea-icon South Koreaball and his brother North Korea-icon North Koreaball were born in 1917 and they headed the 1st independence movement in 1919 and later they lead the Korean Liberation Army during World War 2.

Some Japanese-Empire-icon Japanballs←(저주할꺼야) still deny this history, and that is why South Korean-Japanese relations are still very strained.

Liberation and War South Korea-icon North Korea-icon (1945-53)

In 1945, as WWII drew to a close, Koreaball was liberated by advancing Soviet-icon Soviet and, later, USA-icon American forces. Koreaball's jubilation was short-lived, as both superpowers divided the clay into 2 "temporary" puppet states. South Korea-icon South Koreaball became good friends with the USA-icon USAball and was taught capitalism, in contrast to Soviet-icon Sovietball being friends with their brother and teaching him communism.

Almost immediately, chaos ensued within File:South Koreaball-icon.png. As most of the resources and industry was located in the North, South Korea-icon South Koreaball had to rely on her Northern brother for electricity, which was often cut off at random. North Korea-icon North Koreaball also began launching sporadic guerilla raids into the South and supported Communist-backed strikes and riots. This further shook the Rhee-led government.

South Koreaball and North Koreaball face each other during the Korean War.

In 1950, South Korea-icon South Koreaball’s brother invaded their clay with little resistance, pushing his under-equipped and demoralized army to Busanball, but USA-icon USAball and his NATO-icon NATOball friends helped South Koreaball until China-icon Chinaball came onto North Korea-icon North Koreaball's side. An armistice was signed in 1953, but the border between their homes is still heavily armed.

The Korean War, between 1950 and 1953, left the Korean peninsula divided and deeply impoverished. South Korea-icon South Koreaball had a GDP per capita lower than that of many African countryballs.

Post-War and Modernization South Korea-icon (1953-)

Following the Korean War, Soviet-icon Sovietball and USA-icon USAball supported rival dictatorships - Kim Il-Sung in the North, and Syngman Rhee, later Park Chung-hee (father of former president Park Geun-hye), in the South. Both countryballs began a process of rebuilding and industrialization. Initially, North Korea-icon North Koreaball was ahead of his sibling, but eventually, South Koreaball eclipsed her brother and became one of the Singapore-iconSouth Korea-icon Four Asian Tiger economies. By the late 1980s, the military dictatorship was replaced by a democracy.

Beginning in the '60s, the South Korea-icon South Korean government also began to deregulate her economy, allowing family-owned chaebols to take hold and drive the economy. Furthermore, she invested heavily in her own education, giving rise to a generation of Koreans to lead her white-collar industries. What resulted was one of, if not the most spectacular economic transitions in history, lifting South Korea-icon South Koreaball from a war-torn, devastated dictatorship with a lower GDP per capita than Ghana-icon Ghanaball to an economic juggernaut.

In 1988, North Koreaball boycotted South Koreaball's Olympic Games in Seoul. They marched under a united Korean flag in 2018 though, giving it hope that their brother might be cured and his life turned around.

Together with Japan-icon Japanball, South Koreaball had the 2002 World Cup. In 2015, they had the Gwangju icon Gwangju Universiade and planning to have the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang-icon Pyeongchang and on the 9th of December, 2016, The 18th president impeachment was be passed. and March 10, 2017, Park Geun-hye was impeached and removed from office as President of South Korea after a series of major nationwide protests against her corruption.

South Korea-icon South Koreaball now spends their days doing K-Pop, and (sometimes) cosmetic surgery. South Korea-icon South Koreaball also is developing an obsession with technology, hosting famous corporations such as Samsung, LG, and Hyundai. It is predicted that South Korea-icon South Koreaball may become richer and more powerful than Japan-icon Japanball in about five-to-eight years. South Korea-icon South Koreaball also ranks as the most innovative country (by Bloomberg) and is currently sharing the crown with Japan-icon Japanball as one of the most advanced countryballs in Asia and the world.

In 2018, she hosted the Olympics. Her relations with North Korea-icon North Koreaball is improving, they talked a few times and agreed to end the war. In June, she joined the FIFA World Cup and managed to surprise the entire world by defeating Germany-icon Germanyball 2-0!
