PostSubject: Similarities Between Greeks and Koreans, Greek and Korean Cultures??    Fri Nov 26, 2010 2:46 am

hiiii everyone~

I think that sharing and learning about a culture is important and was wondering if there anyone could think of similarities that exist between our two countries?

here is a few that I've thought of.... feel free to add to the list and to correct me if I've made incorrect assumptions of Greek culture!! =D

-we are family-orientated people
-we love our food
-we are patriotic and loyal to our country
-we both have long histories and our cultures have been around for many many years
-our countries have been victims of civil war, but in the end survived!!
-geographically, we are surrounded by water
-we have the same word for "yes" .... ne!!
-we both have unique alphabets and a writing system

and this is all I can think of for now... lol ;)

but I think there are more commonalities between Greeks and Koreans, even though we come from different parts of the world! <3

I know more history and politics similarities,so :

-We have the same ally,which is USA.
-There were many countries that tried to conquer both countries.
-Greece was also divided into North and South during 1916 but thank god Venizelos came back and the country was united.
-Greeks have got the same love-hate relationship with Turks that Koreans have with Japanese.

I also know that many Greeks stood next to South Korea and fought against North Korea in 1952!

It was divided because the king wanted Greece to enter the World War I as Germany's ally but president Venizelos wanted Greece to enter the war as ENTENTE's ally.So Venizelos went to the "New Countries"(that's the way North Greece was called during 1916) as president and the capital was Thessaloniki.The king continued ruling in South Greece and the capital was Athens.In 1917 ENTENTE turned away the king and the country was united and entered the WWI as their ally.
I'm a history freak XDDDD.

exactly!! and for this, I would say that South Korean-Greek diplomatic relations have been pretty good and South Koreans are very appreciative of the Greek contribution :)
