Did you know that the Demilitarized zone between North and South Korea was agreed in 1953 after the Korean war? Or that there are two islands between Korea and Japan that are known by different names in their respective countries? There is a dispute over who controls the islands, and they are known as the Dokdo Islands by Korea and the Takashima Islands by Japan.
