Making maximum use of the resources available in North Korea, I present the North Korean Battleship!
The ship probably weighs in excess of 500 tons, thus the claim of the "North Korean Battleship", but keep in mind, North Korea has very few ships weighing in at 500+ tons....(Taechong class).
Word and onformation has it that this idea was taken from or given by the Chinese. Information also theorizes that these ships could be outfitted with a couple of anti-ship missiles as well.

The real story of the USS Pueblo

Division of Korea
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
On 10 August 1945 there was a meeting of commissions of the ministry of the exterior, the ministry war and the ministry of marines. As part of this meeting, the two young officer Dean Rusk and Charles Bonesteel were given the task to come up with a plan on how to divide the Korean peninsula. The time allocated for this undertaking was half an hour, the officers had little knowledge of the area and used a National Geographic map to divide the peninsula along the 38th parallel.
The division of Korea along the 38th parallel was decided in America before the Korean people even knew about the capitulation of the Japanese empire. Japan officially capitulated on 15th August 1945.
