South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea is a country in EastAsia. South Korea occupies the southern half of the Korean Peninsula, with North Korea to the north, China across the sea to the west and Japan a short ferry ride to the southeast.
Gyeongju is in North Gyeongsang province, South Korea. Gyeongju was once the capital of the Silla Korean kingdom, and is possibly the foremost location in Korea where many ancient buildings, burial grounds and artefacts can be found.
Gwangju, also known as Kwangju, is in South Jeolla, South Korea. Gwangju has a thriving youth and arts culture and even a glance down the streets of Geumnamno will note a generally more fashion-conscious populace.
