"The Land of the Morning Calm

Much, if not all of the country was mountainous and covered with forests and other vegetation. The wars had taken their toll on this, much of it credited from the Japanese government. When South Korea freed its land from Japanese control, they went to work to replace the forests that were lost. Close to 20 national parks are now reserved, with a few virgin forests remaining in the mix. South Korea also has four seasons, with a wet monsoon/summer in the middle of the year. Cheju-do Island off the south coast is the warmest and wettest place in the country. Despite the rainy season, the climate is very similar to the weather here in the southern-midwest of the US.
