    Ignore current North Korea because my question is about all Koreans and their history before the appearance of modern states North and South Korea.



    Chinese and Japanese were always involved in wars. Now Japanese are not similar to their past, but Chinese have one of the strongest armies in the world. But I never heard anything about warrior stuff of Koreans. Were they peaceful farmers and sedentary people in the most eras of their history?

    No, they fought a lot of wars too. Just read the wikipedia article on Korea's history.

    They had hundreds of wars during their history as well but in all honesty they were most of the times invaded and not the invaders.

    If I'm not mistaken, they had their warring periods and warring kingdoms (Silla, Baekje, Goguryo). So in essence, not that different from the Chinese and Japanese.

    No, they just had the unfortunate luck of being stuck in between much more powerful neighbors. Koreans aren't peaceful people though LOL

    If Korea was in Latin America, Africa or even parts of Europe, it'd be a great power. But in East Asia, many huge powers abound.

    No East Asians have had their wars, some of their wars would make the wars in Europe look like child's play

    In the Warring States period, many of the rival Chinese states already had standing armies of over 1 million and battles where hundreds of thousands were killed. Even massacres where tens of thousands were slaughtered in one place.

    Korea had their own version during the period of the Three Kingdoms (Korean version, China also had one that was more famous), of course their wars were on a much smaller scale than China's.

    So they had potential but failed due to their powerful neighbors, right? I thought they were always just defenders and defended their own region.

    Therefore Korea deserves our respect for surviving their culture despite its geopolitical location.

    Koreans are a great people. They were cursed geographically, but they are a tremendous culture. I feel closest to them ethnically compared to any other Asian group.
