Showdown in ‘The Land of the Morning Calm’

The face off between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un is merely the latest chapter in the saga of a divided Korea

The Land of the Morning Calm is the phrase given to Korea as a reference to it’s splendid tranquility with picturesque high mountains and clear spring waters, especially in the mornings. It is derived from “Chaohsien” meaning “morning freshness,” a title bestowed upon it by an emperor of China’s Ming dynasty.
