People living in the petite Peninsula attached to the East of the Chinese and South of Russian continent (North of Japanese archipelago), nowadays whom are commonly referred to as “Koreans,” have unsurprisingly forever suffered from chaos and turmoil brought about by their neighboring foreign powers incomparable in sheer size. What is in fact shocking, however, is this people’s lack of respect or acknowledgement for their own rich history which tells one consistent tale: the horrendous and devastating war imminent upon their doorsteps unnoticed every single time by its corrupt Leadership.
