    Why the exclusion of word South? This isn’t by any chance both Koreas, is it? Sure North is “uncool” but they still exist, so it’s kind of stupid to exclude the obvious word to make it 110% pinpoint. Please don’t be that American.

    Btw what do you guys call that “word” in English? Turned out what I thought meant completely something else?
