Abstract
This article is a study of the legacy of the Korean War, as well as being a case study on the first instance of regime transition in the Cold War era. This study compares the incorporation of Reclaimed Areas (subokjigu) by South Korea with the incorporation of Newly Liberated Areas (sinhaebangjigu) by North Korea comprehensively from the aspects of occupation, politics, economics, and national identity. Both South Koreas transplantation of capitalism in the Reclaimed Areas and the expansion of North Koreas peoples democracy (inminminjujui) took place unilaterally and in a Cold War fashion. Changes to the national identities in each region took place in silence and conformity, paradoxically illustrating the pain and suffering felt while each region was incorporated into an unyielding regime.
