Political, and physical division of North and South Korea is rooted in a much more past than the date, which marked the separation of the two countries, i.e. 1945. The period of the Japanese occupation (1910-1945) was amongst of the most difficult ones throughout history, and this was dominated by the sense of embitterment of the northerners against the southerners, who were blamed for selling off national sovereignty. Among the architects of the victory of resistance was Kim Il Sung. As a result of democratic elections in August 1948, the South proclaimed the Republic of Korea, and for several weeks later the People’s Democratic Republic of North Korea was proclaimed.
