The unification of the Three Kingdoms by Silla in 676 led to the North South States Period, in which much of the Korean Peninsula was controlled by Later Silla, while Balhae controlled the northern parts of Goguryeo.

Balhae was founded by a Goguryeo general and formed as a successor state to Goguryeo.

Since the government only controlled the southern part of the Korean Peninsula, the informal term South Korea was coined, becoming increasingly common in the Western world.

After Japan's surrender in 1945, Korea was divided along the 38th parallel with the United States controlling the southern part.This region was declared the First Korean Republic on August 15, 1948, but a North Korean invasion led to the Korean War (1950–1953) two years later.Gija Joseon was purportedly founded in the 12th century BC, but its existence and role have been controversial in the modern era.In 108 BC, the Han dynasty defeated Wiman Joseon and installed four commanderies in the northern Korean peninsula.Under Japanese rule, the two names Han and Joseon coexisted.

The South Korean economy soared at an annual average of 10% for over 30 years Globally, it ranks highly in personal safety, job security, ease of doing business and healthcare quality, with the world's third highest health adjusted life expectancy and fourth most efficient healthcare system.South Korea is a member of the United Nations, World Bank, World Health Organization, International Monetary Fund, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, G20 and a global partner of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. The name Goryeo itself was first used by the ancient kingdom of Goguryeo in the 5th century as a shortened form of its name.The new official name has its origin in the ancient country of Gojoseon (Old Joseon).
