    Prior to the Korean war, Korea has been in turmoil for hundreds of years. After the liberation from Japan and after the Korean war in the 60's, South Korea saw years of prosperity and leading to the 13th richest country in the world while North Korea falls into poverty. In that short period of time also came a change in diet (lots of Meat) and in physical stature. How much you say?
