Korean is a peninsula located in East Asia. Despite being next to China, Korea has its own very unique and distinct culture and traditions. It is now broken up into 2 countries: North and South Korea. The peninsula was divided in 1945. North Korean literature and arts are now state controlled.
South Korea, however, has a flourishing economy and culture. Traditional Korean cuture, as well as modern forms of culture, are encouraged and supported by the government.
