Abstract
The end of the Cold Was had a great impact in the Korean Peninsula and brought about the dramatic changes in the circumstances of two Koreas. North Korea has been further isolated while the status of South Korea jas been enhanced in the international community. As a result, South Korea has been attempting to reunify the peninsular based on the principle of peaceful co-existence moving away from the previous strategy based on the ideological conflict. The gloomy reality, however, is that North ans South Korea still do not recognize each other. The constitutions of each country stipulate that each side has the exclusive right to represent Korea. The textbooks 'Geography of Korea' used in the schools of South Korea describe, from the standpoint of anti-communism, the North Korea as an illegal regime occupying the northern Korean Territory. The basic policy of the South does not intend to modify the provisions related to territory I bits constitution.

A new peaceful reunification policy to meet the changing international environment should be reflected in the textbook 'Geography of Korea' The following points can be suggested as a guidance to rewrite the descriptions related to North Korea or reunification in the 'Geography of Korea'
