This article focuses on the political challenges in a divided Korean nation and South Korea's policy toward North Korea. In 2015, the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II is commemorated, and the 70th anniversary of the division of Korea is remembered. The division of Korea resulted in two states: the Republic of Korea and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. At the core of inter-Korean relations are issu es of national identity common to all Koreans. The history of inte- Korean politics consists of complex intertwined currents of confrontation and contested legitimacy, as well as attempts at dialogue, cooperation and reconciliation. Despite changes in world politics, the divided Korean nation still struggles with remnants of the Cold War.
