The article focuses on the historical aspects associated with tension between North Korea and South Korea. North and South Korea haven't always been two separate countries. After the World War II, Korea was divided into Soviet-backed North Korea and U.S.-backed South Korea. North and South Korea remained at war from time to time. The war eventually ended in a stalemate on July 27, 1953. More than 115,500 U.N. troops and about 1.6 million communist troops were killed or wounded in the war. Because no peace treaty was signed, North and South Korea remain officially at war. More than 1 million North Korean troops stand battle-ready just north of the Demilitarized Zone that separates the two Koreas.
