South Korea/Deep state
| South Korea/Deep state|
|Formation||24 July 1948|
|Another deep state founded by the US.|
The South Korean Deep state was shaped by the US deep state after the end of World War II.
It was exposed in 2016 when South Korean President Park Geun-hye was shown to have been under the influence of Choi Soon-sil. The Korean economy is dominated by a few large companies.
|One of South Korea's greatest economic strengths is also one of their biggest economic weaknesses. Their country's economy is defined by a series of massive business groups with names familiar to everyone: Samsung, Hyundai, and LG. These groups power its export economy and dominate its people's everyday lives. They also manipulate the Korean economy to their own advantage, and pay millions to maintain corrupt ties with the highest levels of power in Korea.|
When World War 2 ended, the southern part of the Korean peninsula, formerly a Japanese colony, passed to US control, while the northern part came under Soviet control. The first South Korean President was the US military administration installed the US educated Syngman Rhee, on 24 July 1948, after winning 92.3% of the votes in a rigged election. Scrambling to find a power base for an administration of its area of influence, the US chose to rely on several reactionary factions.
- One noticeable group was the former collaborators with Japan, especially in the colonial police and members of the Japanese Imperial Forces, who essentially formed the core of the new South Korean police, intelligence services and army.
- Another was the feudal landlords and aristocracy, tainted by collaboration, but still maintaining their wealth and influence.
- A third noticeable group was the refugees from the north of the peninsula, including feudal landlords and their private goon squads, that with US support founded anti-communist groups that to this day have large influence in the South.
- Fourthly, fundamentalist Christian groups such as the Unification movement ('Moonies'), under pastor Sun Myung Moon, have considerable influence.

The Korean War devastated the country and confirmed the de facto partition which had emerged post World War II. During the war, the security apparatus (military, police, intelligence services) was deeply aligned their US counterparts, creating an integrated system where the US had the final say. The US focused considerable effort on this, as Korean was seen as a frontier in the cold war. The dominance of US Deep state, though hidden, remained tight, as it was in Japan.
Syngman Rhee evicted[When?] the CIA wholesale from his country due to an "unfortunate incident" at Yong-do island, where CIA commandos had - allegedly mistakenly - shot at Rhee's yacht, without injury. Not until 1959 was the CIA officially welcomed back into South Korea.
Public demonstrations from April 11 to 26, 1960, led to Syngman Rhee's resignation. A soldier Park Chung-hee became South Korean President in 1961, a job he held until his assassination in 1979.
The 1970s saw rigged elections with majorities for Park Chung-hee. In 1979 the group's director of the KCIA assassinated his boss, the South Korean president Park Chung-hee.

Former Korean President, Roh Moo-hyun reportedly killed himself in 2009 by jumping off a cliff near his house, resulting in fatal head injuries.
In 2016 it emerged that the President Park Geun-hye had been sharing classified documents with Choi Soon-sil since at least 2013. This lead to her been regarded as a puppet leader. Massive peaceful demonstrations ensued in Seoul. She hung on for months but eventually resigned.
The Korean National Intelligence Service was engaged in election rigging using trolls to try to get her elected, and that "The Chosun Papers (the country’s largest daily), had likely been aware of critical components of the scandal all along, and simply kept quiet. Critics perceived this as a deliberate attempt by the media to execute its own master plan for puppeteering Park."
The South Korean government followed the SDS official narrative about COVID-19 and Koreans proved highly susceptible to pro-COVID-19 jab messaging.
