Chapter 8: Republic of Korea
The Korean Peninsula extends southward from the north·eastern section of the Asian continent, spanning 1,000 km north to south. It shares most of its northern border with China and touches Russia. Since 1948, the peninsula has been divided into two parts, the Republic of Korea in the south and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in the north (KOIS, 1997). The area of the Republic of Korea is 99,313 square km as of 1996 (NSO, 1991).
