Again in 1966, North Korea tried to instigate an armed insurgency in South Korea where the US came to the aid of South Korea and lead it to a victory. The military of South Korea is highly backed up by the world superpower the US making it even stronger. With the big rival at its border, South Korea keeps on increasing their budget every year to keep itself prepared against North Korea at any moment.
