Its Korean. The spoken language is unique to Korea. It is NOT similar to Japanese (the language spoken in Japan.) Unlike Western European languages with a Latin base, the written Chinese shared by many countries in Asia, has the same meaning, but not the same pronunciation! The Korea peninsula is unique in having almost no ethnic minorities, 99.98% ethnic Korean. Hello in Korean is Annyonhaseyo.Total Korean language speakers 87 million. L1 is Korean. 87-89 million Koreans speak. L2 is English, Japanese, Chinese. Korean alphabet is used 80 percent. Chinese characters is used 20 percent.Korean.Some do some dont, but I believe the percentage is quite low. Maybe below 10%.Koreans speak the Korean language, a language isolate (so it isnt directly descended from another language as far as people have been able to tell) that has some relation to Japanese thanks to a very long and conflicted association with Japan.Koreans speak Korean.Korean.(Hangul)
Yes, however with isolation, the Korean language has developed two distinct dialects, and they are drifting further and further apart with each passing year.North Korean refugees who escape to South Korea find that they cannot understand everything.
Currently, Korea is split into two countries: North Korea and South Korea.North KoreaNorth Korea is a unique type of state, properly classified as a DYNASTIC COMMUNIST STATE. This means that the country is a Communist State, but has succession in leadership passing along a dynastic line like a monarchy. Some consider Dynastic Communism to be part of the Absolute Monarchy category, because of the similarities, while others argue that since the leader of a Dynastic Communist State does not use royal titles that the state is not a proper monarchy.It is important also to notice the vast differences between North Korea and other Communist regimes. It has a dynastic rulership as opposed to a Politburo like the USSR or PR China. It has a strong statist religion (Juche) in place of a pure absence of religion, making it resemble a theocracy more than an atheist secularist regime. The military in North Korea also has a more direct role in governance than even the Peoples Liberation Army in PR China and this is more representative of Caudillo-states like Ghadhafis Libya or Francos Spain.South KoreaSouth Korea is a PRESIDENTIAL REPUBLIC, which is a form of indirect democracy. This means that there is an elected President who serves as the head of state and the head of the government. The President has a large number of powers, but those powers are checked by the Constitutional Court and the National Assembly. The National Assembly, the unicameral legislature, is responsible for passing bills to be reviewed by the President. (The United States is also a Presidential Republic, which is why the system might look familiar to Americans.)
Korea was persuaded by Russia to become a communist country yet some parts of korea did not agree with this form of government so they started a entire war they ended up becoming seperate countries afterwards
