I have a cousin who owns 3 of them 1 hunter, 1 lite, and his most recent supervarmint. Two blued bbl and 1 stainless (lite).
He recently found this and thought I might be interested. Thought I'd share it too with all stainless steel tikka owners.
Sorry, your browser is unsupported. Disqus - tikka t3 serial numbers. Sorry, your browser is unsupported. Does anyone know the dates of manufacture of the Tikka T3.is there a way to tell from the serial #?? Some of the newest Tikka's I own have an H prefix in the.
He told me he's not taking any chances of the stainless bbl injuring him. AND he told me that he knows now that TIKKA T3 blued bbl are better shots than the stainless versions. I don't know if this is an issue for all you stainless T3 owners, but I believe he wouldn't lie to me after all the marsh swamps crossed, hill sides climbed, sand bank fishing, boat trips, road trips, strip clubs, drunk times, and childhood spent together after so many years he wouldn't BS me. He heard I was into the T3s too and thought this would be of interest to me.
He's also recalling the stainless lite to Beretta. I don't think he'll be recieving any exciting news for a while though. This has been posted on this site a bunch of times in the last year, but it is still wise to contact Beretta with your serial number if you aren't sure if your gun is at risk. One phone call - 5 minutes and you are done - either it's safe to shoot or return it for a new gun. I do not believe the blued barrels are somehow inherently more accurate than the stainless ones.
What evidence is there to support that claim? I have 5 Tikka's and one Sako, 3 blued and 3 stainless, and the stainless ones shoot just as good,if not better, although six guns is no where near a large enough sample size to be statistically significant.

I don't think he'll be recieving any exciting news for a while though. I belevie what is very importen to shoot one shot and clean the barrel, and one shot and clean the barrel.
This you have to do for 20brass. Then shoot 3-5 shot and clean the barrel.
This make the stainless barrel perfect and to shoot better. I don´t know what the name for this is, but this should you do with any gun or rifle.
I have a Tikka T3 SS. He told me he's not taking any chances of the stainless bbl injuring him. AND he told me that he knows now that TIKKA T3 blued bbl are better shots than the stainless versions.

I don't think he'll be recieving any exciting news for a while though. I have a T3 Laminated SS, in.270. Mine was one of the guns affected by the recall. A very specific batch of Sako' steel was no good. It meant that a very limited number of Tikkas were made from this steel. It's a serial number range for guns produced after Feb of 2004.
In any event, they found the problem, and replaced my gun. Not just the barrel, but the entire gun. Now, disregarding the really questionable notification process of Beretta, the 1st gun and 2nd both shoot sub MOA (when I do). All in all, problem solved, with a new gun, a free set of scope rings (they didin't ask for the originals back, and sent a new set!), and a fairly nice hunting knife (w/bone saw) thrown in for good PR. I'm still not particularly pleased with how the entire thing was handled by Beretta, but I can't reasonably hold it against Tikka, Sako, or the gun. The gun(s) shoots great. Cheers jonas.
You had better have the person you are selling that rifle to sign a release for you. Everybody in the chain of sale is responsible for personal injury from a manufacturing defect, but there might be an exception for a consumer to consumer sale. Nonetheless, I would have the release signed to be on the safe side. The last thing you want to do is to have to hire an attorney to represent you in something like this that goes to trial. Wouldn't be worth the money you get from the gun.
Then again, even with a signed release, you might still have to hire an attorney to file a Motion to Dismiss. Quite honestly, I think I would wait until Beretta/Sako/Tikka fix the thing and then sell it, but still have the person sign a release and keep all the paperwork. I have no intention of selling the gun. I would never put someone at risk, even if they were willing to sign a release.
Besides, I can't imagine how someone would be dumb enough to buy it in the first place if they really knew what they were buying. I still haven't heard back from Beretta. Maybe they're only returning calls to folks who have an affected gun. I'm really displeased with the way they're handling this issue. Why aren't they more up front about it?
Why don't they just publish a list of serial numbers somewhere, or have a feature on their web site where you can type in a serial number and get an answer? Actually, I seem to be having a run of bad luck lately. 1) I ordered an ATV part from a legitimate seller on ebay.
He sent the wrong part and won't make it right. Told me to re-sell it on ebay! The problem with that is I don't know what make/model it fits, just what it doesn't fit. 2) Ordered an item from onlinemetals.com at least two weeks ago.
They promise next day shipping, but it hasn't shipped yet. 3) Sent a TIVO to be repaired, never to be heard of again. On small ticket items, it is almost like buyer beware again with the amount of mail order and internet sales. Tough to get a judgment against a seller in your state and then have another attorney enforce it in another state. Heck, it is even tough for me. Such is the risk we take with these types of purchases.
Beretta did right by me regarding a 682 GoldE o/u shotgun, but it did take them a while (i.e., several months and two attempts). Hang in there and I am sure they will get back to you with an answer. I can only imagine how swamped their customer service department is with such a recall. From what I've read on another forum, I get the impression that stainless is a tricky material to make guns from.
The alloy and heat-treating has to be just right. Not as forgiving as regular steel. On the other hand, there are millions of stainless guns in the world that don't blow up. I really believe the way Beretta/Sako/Tikka is handling this is criminal. People are being maimed (e.g. A boy in Sweden lost a thumb), yet Beretta et.
Is trying to keep the whole thing low-profile. If this had happened to Ruger, there would be ads in all the gun rags and a prominent mention on the web site. Beretta, on the other hand, acknowledges there is a recall on their phone message, but won't return calls or emails or really do anything proactive to warn their customers who are at risk. They should have a list of serial numbers on their web site or an interface where you could type in your serial number and get an answer. Instead, I'm stuck with a gun I'm afraid to shoot. My serial number is about 200 numbers away from one of the blown-up guns.
Even if they call me and tell me the gun is safe, I'll always have doubts. I will never buy another Beretta/Sako/Tikka product again. Not because they sold a few defective rifles, but because of the way they are mishandling the situation. I can point you to threads on other forms where a lot of other people feel the same way. Too bad for B/S/T. They are really screwing this up. Okay, now lets look at a couple of distinguishing factors between the Tylenol problem and this problem that Beretta/Sako/Tikka is dealing with.
Yes, Tylenol dealt with the problem by pulling all their product off the shelves and beginning the use of tamper proof bottle seals. Now, you see those seals on almost every bottle of any kind.
Tylenol did not recall all the Tylenol bottles that were in peoples medicine cabinets and issue refunds for them. However, people were just fine with throwing these bottles of Tylenol into the trash and going out and buying the new tamper proof bottles because the cost of the item was so small (i.e., the consumer could afford to eat some of the cost). For Beretta to do the same thing as Tylenol would be extremely costly. Of course, I do not know whether or not Beretta recalled all the latest production run rifles or not and fixed the problem at that end.
However, for Beretta to recall ALL the Sako/Tikka rifles out there would be rather tough and extremely expensive. So, they probably have to try and figure out exactly what the problem is and determine if they can isolate the problem to a specific run of guns or whether it is actually a design defect in some way.
Looking at the two or three pictures of the guns on the website link has me puzzled. It is just tough to imagine so many pieces of a gun failing (e.g., the barrel chamber, barrel, and receiver and being torn apart like that, but I guess anything is possible). I just might have to call the customer service rep I was dealing with over there and ask him if he knows anything about this because I haven't been doing enough digging of my own. If I find some time on my hands Friday I will give him a call and see if he can address this thread or have somebody else address it. Have you guys heard about Dodge Dakotas and Durangos from 2001 to 2004?
The front wheel actually falls off those trucks and Dodge will not recall them even though the FTA has asked them to. The wheel falls off because of abnormal upper ball joint wear which causes the joint to fail and the truck to collapse on the wheel. Dodge's position on it is that the abnormal upper ball joint wear will usually be caught by the mechanic if regular maintenance is performed on the truck. However, even if it isn't caught by the mechanic, most failures will happen during low speed turns. Well, I would hate to be the guy making a left turn in front of traffic, have my front wheel fall off, and then end up broadsided/T-boned by an oncoming bus. Thing is, Dodge had its statisticians come in and run the numbers and it turned out to be more costly to recall all the trucks than to settle and/or defend the number of personal injury accident claims that will actually be brought. It is terrible that companies do stuff like this, but they all do.
I just wish it came back to bite the CEO's where it hurts (i.e., their families). However, I can bet that no Dodge CEO family member is driving a 2001-2004 Durango or Dakota and no Ford CEO family member is driving an Explorer with Firestone tires on it, and I love Ford. Well I have one solution for this issue with the sako.
Don't buy the product untill the company stands behind it. Remeber the Ford Pinto it was way before my teenage years however it was basicly a ford write off. Companies respond big time to quality control or in this case a deffective product when consumers or potential buyers avoid purchasing their product. I tell you what ever since that firestone incident a few years back when it came time to get new tires on the truck a set of firestone tires where tempting because in my area you could by two and get two free they were my last option when shoping around. It's shocking to read this topic because I know Beretta builds a quality product.
I think it's pretty clear that Beretta/Sako/Tikka knows at least some of the serial numbers that are defective. They should publish those numbers on their website, place announcements in gun magazines, have dealers put up fliers, etc. That wouldn't cost much, and it would probably prevent some injuries (and lawsuits).
I believe the reason they don't do that is because it means publicly admitting the problem. The problem has been know since, I believe, October 2004 and Beretta has done little to address it. That means people have been hunting and practicing with those guns during prime hunting season.
I fired my gun at least twice during December. Once with my 8 year old son by my side.
Even if Beretta is unwilling to repair or replace the guns or refund the price, they should tell their customers (based on serial number) if a) the gun is safe b) the gun is unsafe c) it's unknown so don't fire it until we figure it out In case anybody hasn't bothered to read the threads on the other forums, the guns are not blowing up on the first round fired. I remember one was reported to blow on the 19th round and another after 'about two and a half boxes'.
Fabs, my point of the tylenol recall was that they were proactive, not dragging their feet, deny it all the way reactive like tikka. Tylenol spent major bucks on pulling existing product off the shelves, millions of bottles worth. How many rifles could be affected?
A few thousand? Either way cost shouldn't matter when a product has a very real potential to injure, maim, blind or kill the user. Once a company gets a bad rep, it is hard to overcome especially in the firearm world where impressions die hard. It seems like companies don't want to do the right thing until legally or finacially compelled to do so. And that is most likely going to happen in this case.
Guru a.k.a Keith Elam passed away(April 19th, 2010) from myeloma cancer. Guru was an inspiration to several rappers with his witty lyrics and fresh laid-back style. Some people underrate Guru as an emcee because of DJ Premier’s production status. DJ Premier joined Guru’s Gang Starr back in ’87 (after the other members left). To make a long story short, the duo went on to have a successful career. They release six albums, and you can’t say anything bad about any of them.
Moment Of Truth is not the only classic record from Gang Starr. I also believe that Daily Operation is a classic, but I decided to review this album because I think this is Guru’s best lyrical performance.

It’s too long to do a track by track review on this album with 20 songs (no skits); especially when most of them are standouts. So I’m going to review five of my favorite tracks from the album. You Know My Steez Produced by Gang Starr Gang Starr hits us with a standout on the first track of the album. They begin with an intro explaining their formula, “The rhyme style is elevated, the style of beats is elevated, but it’s still Guru and Premier” They kept this simple formula for most of their career and it only lead to success. What more can you ask for? – Real Hip-Hop with superior MCing and DJing track after track. Guru has one of the smoothest flows in Hip-Hop.
On the second verse, he explains the track to us, “the beat is sinister, Primo makes you relax, I’m like the minister, when I be lacin the wax. I be bringing salvation through the way I rap, and you know, and I know, I’m nice like that”. Above The Clouds Featuring Inspectah Deck; Produced by Gang Starr Premo starts the beat with a few famous quotes (mixed with scratching) related to what’s above the clouds. He samples a quote from former president JFK and drops the beat in perfectly halfway through his shortened speech. I believe this is one of the best intros into a song. Premo builds up the beat flawlessly, and Guru takes no time to drop a lyrical ambush on the track. “Illustrious feature, narrator you select, accompanied by Deck plus the DJ you respect.
The seven and a half combine, over the frontline, the ten percenters, promotin slander in the airtime”. Guru is joined by Wu-Tang clansman Rebel INS on the second verse. INS takes the same lyrical approach as Guru and bodies the track, “I span the universe, and return to earth to claim my throne. The maker, owner, plus soul controller, Ayatollah rest in the sky, the cloud’s my sofa”. I wish DJ Premier and Inspectah Deck could’ve made an album in this time (late 90’s). It seemed like they were both at the top of their games, and it’s hard to imagine that it would be anything less than classic material.
Moment Of Truth Produced by Gang Starr Let me start by saying this is one of the best Hip-Hop songs of all time. The song starts with one of the realest Hip-Hop choruses, “ They say it’s lonely at the top, in whatever you do, you always gotta watch motherfuckers around you. Nobody’s invincible, no plan is foolproof, we must all meet our moment of truth”.
Guru drops three verses on the track all relating to people’s moment of truth. The first verse explains why everyone must meet their moment of truth. The second verse is on a more personal level, and Guru explains his moment of truth. The third verse is the listener’s moment of truth.
I’m going to drop the lyrics to the second verse. I find this as the best way to show remembrance to Guru.
Sometimes you gotta dig deep, when problems come near Don’t fear things get severe for everybody everywhere Why do bad things happen, to good people? Seems that life is just a constant war between good and evil The situation that I’m facin, is mad amazin To think such problems can arise from minor confrontations Now I’m contemplatin in my bedroom pacin Dark clouds over my head, my heart’s racin Suicide? Excellent pick Arkitekt, major props for this one. This is probably my favorite Gang Starr album with so many classic and high caliber tracks on it as you mentioned. I can’t count how many times I’ve listened to this album since last Tuesday, but each time it just sounds as fresh as the last listen. It’s sad that we won’t see any new Gang Starr albums but that’s the great thing about a catalog as superior as theirs in that you can always listen to any of their albums and hear timeless music. Guru will truly be missed and remembered R.I.P.

My opinions on the project. Information about the group aside, this project was probably one of my favorite projects of all time. Not to mention from my favorite group of all time. Back in the day I remember playing so many video games to this track-list tuning in the back of my head, encouraging me to go that extra step in terms of progression within the game, whichever it may be that I was playing at that time. Being as young as I was I didn’t really know the mold that music would have on me at that time however, as time progressed I found a love for types of work related to struggle and heart-ship appose to turn up, spray em down drill tracks all the time.

At this point, you have just added yourself and that’s it. If you want the default Windows permissions that would be applied, you can follow the next couple of steps. Click on the Advanced button and then click on Change Permissions. Click the Remove button and remove all of the permissions currently listed. At this point, it should just be your user account. Once the listbox is empty, go ahead and check the Include inheritable permissions from this object’s parent box. Then click the Apply button, not the OK button.
You should see several entries appear in the listbox, including one for your user account. The default permissions also include SYSTEM and Administrators usually, so it’s a good idea to reset them properly this way. If the folder has many sub-folders with files, you can check the Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object box. Close all dialogs and you should be good to go! As I mentioned earlier, Access is Denied can be caused in some cases by other issues.
A corrupt user profile is one of those odd issues that I have seen more in domain environments. You can create a new user profile and then try to access the file or folder. The other issue is if the file is encrypted. You can always try checking to see if the file is encrypted or not by right-clicking and choosing Properties. Then click on the Advanced button from the General tab and uncheck the Encrypt contents to secure data box. If someone else has encrypted the file/folder, you won’t be able to access it until you can decrypt it using their user account.
The last issue if the file itself is corrupt. In that case, you will have to search for software that can help repair corrupt files, though this is a very rare cause of the problem. File in Use or Sharing Violation Error Note that getting the Access is Denied message can be caused by a sharing violation, so if the above method did not work, try the following procedure below. You can download and install a free program called from Microsoft.
You can use it to find out which processes are locking up a file. Right-click on the executable file after unzipping and choose Run as Administrator to run the program.
Then don’t worry about all the crazy colors and bars, just go to the top and click on Find and then Find Handle or DLL. Now type in the name of the file in question in the box and type search. You don’t have to type the full name of the file; just part of it will also work most of the time.
You should get back a list of processes that currently have locks on the file. In my case, Notepad.exe locked my test document. Now select the item in the box and then close the search box. You should be back at the main process explorer screen. At the bottom, a row should be highlighted and it should be the path to the file that you had selected in the search box. Right-click on that row and choose Close Handle. If there was more than one process in the search box, you will have to repeat the same procedure for each process.
At this point, you should be able to delete or modify the file as you please. The program is very useful when you get these types of error messages: • Cannot delete file: Error 5 Access is denied • There has been a sharing violation • The source or destination file may be in use • The file is in use by another program or user • Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use Program is very lightweight and does not take up very many resources at all. It can also tell you a lot of other information about Windows processes, but that’s for another post. Like I said above, if someone has denied you access manually, you will not be able to get into that folder or file unless you are given permissions from an Administrator! Have any questions, post a comment.

Most guitar manufacturers put a serial number on each instrument they produce. This number can be used to date a guitar and in some cases tell where it was made.
Serial numbers tend to be stamped or written somewhere on the headstock or neck joint of the guitar. On some acoustic guitars, the serial number is on the inside of the sound hole. Serial numbers are often at least four digits long, and they sometimes include letters. Search the area around the serial number for a date stamp. Not all guitar brands use date stamps, but if you find one, you have your answer. Look for the brand name decal on the guitar's headstock. Each guitar brand uses a different set of serial numbers, so you need to identify your guitar before you attempt to use the serial number to learn when it was made.

The name Korea is derived from, also known as Koryŏ, one of the The name Korea derives from the name Goryeo. The name Goryeo itself was first used by the ancient kingdom of in the 5th century as a shortened form of its name.
The 10th-century kingdom of succeeded Goguryeo, and thus inherited its name, which was pronounced by visiting Persian merchants as 'Korea'. The modern spelling of Korea first appeared in the late 17th century in the travel writings of the 's. Despite the coexistence of the spellings Corea and Korea in 19th century publications, some Koreans believe that, around the time of the Japanese occupation, intentionally standardised the spelling on Korea, making appear first alphabetically.
After Goryeo was replaced by Joseon in 1392, Joseon became the official name for the entire territory, though it was not universally accepted. The new official name has its origin in the ancient country of (Old Joseon). In 1897, the changed the official name of the country from Joseon to Daehan Jeguk (). The name Daehan, which means 'great Han' literally, derives from (Three Hans). However, the name Joseon was still widely used by Koreans to refer to their country, though it was no longer the official name. Under, the two names Han and Joseon coexisted.
There were several groups who, the most notable being the ( 대한민국 임시정부/ 大韓民國臨時政府). Following the, in 1945, the Republic of Korea ( 대한민국/ 大韓民國, literally 'Great Korean people's country'; ) was adopted as the legal name for the new country. Since the government only controlled the southern part of the, the informal term South Korea was coined, becoming increasingly common in the. While South Koreans use Han (or Hanguk) to refer to the entire country, North Koreans and ethnic Koreans in China and Japan use the term Joseon as the name of the country. One of the built during the and a The begins with the founding of Joseon (also known as ', or Old Joseon, to differentiate it with the 14th century dynasty) in 2333 BC by, according to Korea's foundation mythology. Gojoseon expanded until it controlled the northern Korean Peninsula and parts of.
Was purportedly founded in the 12th century BC, but its existence and role have been controversial in the modern era. In 108 BC, the and installed in the northern Korean peninsula. Three of the commanderies fell or retreated westward within a few decades. As was destroyed and rebuilt around this time, the place gradually moved toward Liadong.
Thus, its force was diminished and it only served as a trade center until it was conquered by in 313. Three Kingdoms of Korea During the period known as the, the states of,,, and occupied the Korean peninsula and southern Manchuria. From them,,, and emerged to control the peninsula as the. Goguryeo, the largest and most powerful among them, was a highly militaristic state, and competed with various Chinese dynasties during its 700 years of history. Goguryeo experienced a golden age under and his son, who both subdued Baekje and Silla during their times, achieving a brief unification of the Three Kingdoms of Korea and becoming the most dominant power on the Korean Peninsula. In addition to contesting for control of the Korean Peninsula, Goguryeo had many with various Chinese dynasties, most notably the, in which Goguryeo defeated a huge force said to number over a million men. Baekje was a great maritime power; its nautical skill, which made it the of East Asia, was instrumental in the dissemination of Buddhism throughout East Asia and continental culture to Japan.
Baekje was once a great military power on the Korean Peninsula, especially during the time of, but was critically defeated by Gwanggaeto the Great and declined. Silla was the smallest and weakest of the three, but it used cunning diplomatic means to make opportunistic pacts and alliances with the more powerful Korean kingdoms, and eventually, to its great advantage. The unification of the Three Kingdoms by Silla in 676 led to the, in which much of the Korean Peninsula was controlled by, while controlled the northern parts of Goguryeo. Balhae was founded by a and formed as a successor state to Goguryeo. During its height, Balhae controlled most of Manchuria and parts of the Russian Far East, and was called the 'Prosperous Country in the East'. Was a golden age of art and culture, as evidenced by the,, and.
Relationships between Korea and China remained relatively peaceful during this time. Later Silla carried on the maritime prowess of, which acted like the of medieval, and during the 8th and 9th centuries dominated the seas of East Asia and the trade between China, Korea and Japan, most notably during the time of; in addition, Silla people made overseas communities in China on the and the mouth of the. Later Silla was a prosperous and wealthy country, and its metropolitan capital of was the fourth largest city in the world. Buddhism flourished during this time, and many Korean Buddhists gained great fame among Chinese Buddhists and contributed to Chinese Buddhism, including:,,,, and, a Silla prince whose influence made one of the Four of Chinese Buddhism.
However, Later Silla weakened under internal strife and the revival of and, which led to the in the late 9th century. Unified Dynasties In 936, the Later Three Kingdoms were united by, a descendant of Goguryeo nobility, who established as the successor state of. Balhae had fallen to the in 926, and a decade later the fled south to Goryeo, where he was warmly welcomed and included into the ruling family by Wang Geon, thus unifying the two successor nations of Goguryeo. Like Silla, Goryeo was a highly cultural state, and invented the metal movable type. After defeating the Khitan Empire, which was the most powerful empire of its time, in the, Goryeo experienced a golden age that lasted a century, during which the was completed and there were great developments in printing and publishing, promoting learning and dispersing knowledge on philosophy, literature, religion, and science; by 1100, there were 12 universities that produced famous scholars and scientists.
However, the in the 13th century greatly weakened the kingdom. Goryeo was never conquered by the Mongols, but exhausted after three decades of fighting, the Korean court sent its to the capital to swear allegiance to, who accepted, and married one of his daughters to the Korean crown prince. Henceforth, Goryeo continued to rule Korea, though as a tributary ally to the Mongols for the next 86 years. During this period, the two nations became intertwined as all subsequent Korean kings married Mongol princesses, and the of the Yuan dynasty was a Korean princess. In the mid-14th century, Goryeo drove out the Mongols to regain its northern territories, briefly conquered, and defeated invasions by the.
However, in 1392, General, who had been ordered to attack China, turned his army around and staged a coup. Yi Seong-gye declared the new name of Korea as 'Joseon' in reference to Gojoseon, and moved the capital to Hanseong (one of the old names of ). The first 200 years of the Joseon dynasty were marked by peace, and saw great advancements in science and education, as well as the creation of by to promote literacy among the common people. The prevailing ideology of the time was, which was epitomized by the class: nobles who passed up positions of wealth and power to lead lives of study and integrity. Between 1592 and 1598, launched, but his advance was halted by Korean forces (most notably the led by Admiral and his renowned ') with assistance from militias formed by Korean civilians, and Chinese troops. Through a series of successful battles of attrition, the Japanese forces were eventually forced to withdraw, and relations between all parties became normalized. However, the took advantage of Joseon's war-weakened state and in 1627 and 1637, and then went on to the destabilized Ming dynasty.
After normalizing relations with the new, Joseon experienced a nearly 200-year period of peace. Kings and particularly led a new renaissance of the Joseon dynasty during the 18th century. In the 19th century, the royal in-law families gained control of the government, leading to mass corruption and weakening of the state, and severe poverty and peasant rebellions throughout the country. Furthermore, the Joseon government adopted a strict isolationist policy, earning the nickname 'the ', but ultimately failed to protect itself against and was forced to open its borders. After the and the, Korea was (1910–45). At the end of, the Japanese surrendered to Soviet and U.S.
Forces who occupied the northern and southern halves of Korea, respectively. Modern history.
Between 1962 and 1994, the grew at an average of 10% annually, fueled by annual export growth of 20%, in a period called the Despite the initial plan of a in the, escalating antagonism between the and the eventually led to the establishment of separate governments, each with its own ideology, leading to the into two political entities in 1948: and South Korea. In the South,, an opponent of communism, who had been backed and appointed by the United States as head of the provisional government, won the first presidential elections of the newly declared Republic of Korea in May.
In the North, a former anti-Japanese guerrilla and communist activist, was appointed premier of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in September. In October the Soviet Union declared Kim Il-sung's government as sovereign over both parts. The UN declared Rhee's government as 'a lawful government having effective control and jurisdiction over that part of Korea where the UN Temporary Commission on Korea was able to observe and consult' and the Government 'based on elections which was observed by the Temporary Commission' in addition to a statement that 'this is the only such government in Korea.'
Both leaders began an authoritarian repression of their political opponents inside their region, seeking for a unification of Korea under their control. While South Korea's request for military support was denied by the United States, North Korea's military was heavily reinforced by the Soviet Union. 1950 On June 25, 1950, North Korea invaded South Korea, sparking the, the Cold War's first major conflict, which continued until 1953. At the time, the Soviet Union had boycotted the United Nations (UN), thus forfeiting their veto rights. This allowed the UN to intervene in a civil war when it became apparent that the superior North Korean forces would unify the entire country. The Soviet Union and China backed North Korea, with the later participation of millions of.
After an ebb and flow that saw both sides almost pushed to the brink of extinction, and massive losses among Korean civilians in both the north and the south, the war eventually reached a stalemate. The 1953 armistice, never signed by South Korea, split the peninsula along the near the original demarcation line. No peace treaty was ever signed, resulting in the two countries remaining technically at war.

As of 2009, South Korea had 1,106,884 foreign residents, 2.7% of the population; however, more than half of them are ethnic Koreans with a foreign citizenship. For example, make up 56.5% of foreign nationals, but approximately 70% of the Chinese citizens in Korea are, PRC citizens of Korean ethnicity. Regardless of the ethnicity, there are 28,500 personnel serving in South Korea, most serving a one-year unaccompanied tour (though approximately 10% serve longer tours accompanied by family), according to the Korea National Statistical Office. In addition, about 43,000 English teachers from reside temporarily in Korea. Currently, South Korea has one of the highest rates of growth of foreign born population, with about 30,000 foreign born residents obtaining South Korean citizenship every year since 2010. South Korea's birthrate was the world's lowest in 2009.
If this continues, its population is expected to decrease by 13% to 42.3 million in 2050. South Korea's annual birthrate is approximately 9 births per 1000 people. However, the birthrate has increased by 5.7% in 2010 and Korea no longer has the world's lowest birthrate. According to a 2011 report from, South Korea's total fertility rate (1.23 children born per woman) is higher than those of Taiwan (1.15) and Japan (1.21). The average in 2008 was 79.10 years, (which was 34th in the world ) but by 2015 it had increased to around 81. South Korea has the steepest decline in working age population of the OECD nations. In 2015, National Statistical Office estimated that the population of the country will have reached its peak by 2035.
The front of the science library, Daejeon campus of, depicting the statue of, a Korean scientist A centralized administration in South Korea oversees the process for the education of children from kindergarten to the third and final year of high school. The school year is divided into two semesters, the first of which begins in the beginning of March and ends in mid-July, the second of which begins in late August and ends in mid-February. The schedules are not uniformly standardized and vary from school to school. Most South Korean middle schools and high schools have school uniforms, modeled on western-style uniforms. Boys' uniforms usually consists of trousers and white shirts, and girls wear skirts and white shirts (this only applies in middle schools and high schools). The country adopted a new educational program to increase the number of their foreign students through 2010.
According to the, the number of scholarships for foreign students in South Korea would have (under the program) doubled by that time, and the number of foreign students would have reached 100,000. South Korea is one of the top-performing countries in reading literacy, maths and sciences with the average student scoring 542 and has one of the worlds highest-educated labour forces among OECD countries. The country is well known for its high feverish outlook on education, where its national obsession with education has been called 'education fever'. This obsession with education has catapulted the resource poor nation consistently atop the global education rankings where in 2014 national rankings of students’ math and science scores by the Organization for Economic and Cooperation and Development (OECD), South Korea ranked second place worldwide, after Singapore. Higher education is a serious issue in South Korea society, where it is viewed as one of the fundamental cornerstones of South Korean life.
Education is regarded with a high priority for South Korean families as success in education holds a cultural status as well as a necessity to improve one's socioeconomic position in South Korean society. Academic success is often a source of pride for families and within South Korean society at large.
South Koreans view education as the main propeller of social mobility for themselves and their family as a gateway to the South Korean middle class. Graduating from a top university is the ultimate marker of prestige, high socioeconomic status, promising marriage prospects, and a respectable career path. An average South Korean child's life revolves around education as pressure to succeed academically is deeply ingrained in South Korean children from an early age. Not having a university degree carries a major cultural stigma as those who lack a formal university education face social prejudice and are often looked down upon by others. In 2015, the country spent 4.7% of its GDP on all levels of education – roughly equal to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) average of 4.7% also.
A strong investment in education, a militant drive for success as well as the passion for excellence has helped the resource poor country rapidly grow its economy over the past 60 years from a war torn wasteland. South Korea’s zeal for education and its students’ desires to get into a prestigious university is one of the highest in the world, as the entrance into a top tier higher educational institution leads to a prestigious, secure and well-paid white collar job with the government, banks, a major South Korean such as,. With incredible pressure on high school students to secure places at the nation’s best universities, its institutional reputation and alumni networks are strong predictors of future career prospects. The top three universities in South Korea, often referred to as 'SKY', are Seoul National University, Korea University and Yonsei University.
Intense competition for top grades and academic pressure to be the top student is deeply ingrained in the psyche of South Korean students at a young age. Yet with only so many places at universities and even fewer places at top-tier companies, many young people remain disappointed and are often unwilling to lower their sights with the result of many feeling as underachievers. There is a major cultural taboo in South Korean society attached to those who have not achieved formal university education where those who don't hold university degrees face social prejudice and are often looked down by others as second-class citizens resulting fewer opportunities for employment, improvement of one's socioeconomic position and prospects for marriage. International reception on the South Korean education system has been divided. It has been praised for various reasons, including its comparatively high test results and its major role in ushering South Korea's creating one of the world's most educated workforces.
South Korea's highly enviable academic performance has gotten British education ministers actively remodeling their own curriculum's and exams to try to emulate Korea's militant drive and passion for excellence and high educational achievement. President has also praised the country's rigorous school system, where over 80 percent of South Korean high school graduates go on to university. The nation's high university entrance rate has created a highly skilled workforce making South Korea among the most highly educated countries in the world with one of the highest percentages of its citizens holding a tertiary education degree. Bachelor's degrees are held by 68 percent of South Koreans aged 25–34, the most in the OECD. The system's rigid and hierarchical structure has been criticized for stifling creativity and innovation; described as intensely and 'brutally' competitive, the system is often blamed for the high rate in the country, particularly the growing rates among those aged 10–19. Various media outlets attribute the country's high suicide rate to the nationwide anxiety around the country's college entrance exams, which determine the trajectory of students' entire lives and careers.
Former South Korean hagwon teacher Se-Woong Koo wrote that the South Korean education system amounts to and that it should be 'reformed and restructured without delay'. The system has also been criticized for producing an excess supply of university graduates creating an overeducated and underemployed labor force; in the first quarter of 2013 alone, nearly 3.3 million South Korean university graduates were jobless, leaving many graduates overqualified for jobs requiring less education.
Further criticism has been stemmed for causing labor shortages in various skilled blue collar labor and vocational occupations, where many go unfilled as the negative social stigma associated with vocational careers and not having a university degree continues to remain deep-rooted in South Korean society. (7.9%) According to the results of the census of 2015 more than half of the South Korean population (56.9%) declared themselves not affiliated with any.

According to the 2015 census, 27.6% of the population were Christians (19.7% identified themselves as Protestants, 7.9% as Roman Catholics), and 15.5% were Buddhists.

Overall, between the 2005 and 2015 censuses there has been a slight decline of Christianity (down from 29% to 27.6%), a sharp decline of Buddhism (down from 22.8% to 15.5%), and a rise of the unaffiliated population (from 47.2% to 56.9%). Christianity is South Korea's largest organized religion, accounting for more than half of all South Korean adherents of religious organizations. There are approximately 13.5 million Christians in South Korea today; about two thirds of them belonging to Protestant churches, and the rest to the Roman Catholic Church.
The number of Protestants has been stagnant throughout the 1990s and the 2000s, but increased to a peak level throughout the 2010s. Roman Catholics increased significantly between the 1980s and the 2000s, but declined throughout the 2010s. Christianity, unlike in other East Asian countries, found fertile ground in Korea in the 18th century, and by the end of the 18th century it persuaded a large part of the population as the declining monarchy supported it and opened the country to widespread proselytism as part of a project of Westernization. The weakness of Korean Sindo, which, unlike Japanese and, never developed into a national religion of high status, combined with the impoverished state of (after 500 years of suppression at the hands of the Joseon state, by the 20th century it was virtually extinct) left a free hand to Christian churches. Christianity's similarity to native religious narratives has been studied as another factor that contributed to its success in the peninsula. The of the first half of the 20th century further strengthened the identification of Christianity with, as the Japanese coopted native Korean Sindo into the Nipponic that they tried to establish in the peninsula.
Widespread Christianization of the Koreans took place during State Shinto, after its abolition, and then in the independent South Korea as the newly established military government supported Christianity and native Sindo.

Main article: Both North and South Korea continue to officially claim sovereignty over the entire peninsula and any outlying islands. Despite mutual animosity, reconciliation efforts have continued since the initial separation between North and South Korea. Political figures such as Kim Koo worked to reconcile the two governments even after the Korean War.
With longstanding animosity following the from 1950 to 1953, North Korea and South Korea signed an agreement to pursue peace.

North and South Korea are still technically at war (having never signed a peace treaty after the Korean War) and share the world's most heavily fortified border.

President Lee Myung-bak declared in May 2010 that Seoul would cut all trade with North Korea as part of measures primarily aimed at striking back at North Korea diplomatically and financially, except for the joint Kaesong Industrial Project, and humanitarian aid. North Korea initially threatened to sever all ties, to completely abrogate the previous pact of non-aggression, and to expel all South Koreans from, but backtracked on its threats and decided to continue its ties with South Korea.
Despite the continuing ties, Kaesong industrial zone has seen a large decrease in investment and manpower as a result of this military conflict. In February 2016, the Kaesong complex was closed by Seoul in reaction to North Korea's launch of a rocket earlier in the month unanimously condemned by the United Nations security council.

The national pension scheme is the primary welfare system providing allowances to the majority of persons. Eligibility for the national pension scheme is not dependent on income but on age and residence, where those between the ages of 18 to 59 are covered. Any one who is under the age of 18 are dependents of someone who is covered or under a special exclusion where they are allowed to alternate provisions.
The national pension scheme is divided into four categories of insured persons – the workplace-based insured, the individually insured, the voluntarily insured, and the voluntarily and continuously insured. Employees between the ages of 18 to 59 are covered under the workplace-based pension scheme and contribute 4.5% of their gross monthly earnings. The national pension covers employees who work in firms that employ five or more employees, fishermen, farmers, and the self-employed in both rural and urban areas. Employers are also covered under the workplace-based pension scheme and help cover their employees obligated 9% contribution by providing the remaining 4.5%. Anyone who is not employed, of the age of 60 or above, and excluded by article 6 of the but of the ages between 18 and 59, is covered under the individually insured pension scheme.
Persons covered by the individually insured pension scheme are in charge of paying the entire 9% contribution themselves. Voluntarily insured persons are not subjected to mandatory coverage but can choose to be. This category comprises retirees who voluntarily choose to have additional benefits, individuals under the age of 27 without income, and individuals whose spouses are covered under a public welfare system, whether military, governmental, or private school teacher pensions.
Like the Individually insured persons, they too are in charge of covering the full amount of the contribution. Voluntarily and continuously insured persons consists of individuals 60 years of age who want to fulfill the minimum insured period of 20 years to qualify for old age pension benefits. Excluding the workplace-based insured persons, all the other insured persons personally cover their own 9% contribution. South Korea's old-age pension scheme covers individuals age 60 or older for the rest of their life as long as they have satisfied the minimum of 20 years of national pension coverage before hand. Individuals with a minimum of 10 years covered under the national pension scheme and who are 60 years of age are able to be covered by under a 'reduced old-age pension' scheme. There also is an 'active old-age pension' scheme that covers individuals age 60 to 65 engaged in activities yielding earned income.
Individuals age of 55 and younger than 60 who are not engaged in activities yielding earned income are eligible to be covered under the 'early old-age pension' scheme. Around 60% of all Korean elders, age 65 and over are entitled to a 5% benefit of their past average income at an average of 90,000 (KRW). Basic old-age pension schemes covered individuals 65 years of age who earned below an amount set by presidential order. In 2010, that ceiling was 700,00 KRW for a single individual and 1,120,000 for a couple, equivalent to around $600.00 and $960.00. Science and technology.

However, the third launch of the Naro 1 in January 2013 was successful. The government plans to develop Naro-2 by the year 2018. South Korea's efforts to build an indigenous space launch vehicle is marred because of persistent political pressure of the United States, who had for many decades hindered South Korea's indigenous rocket and missile development programs in fear of their possible connection to clandestine military ballistic missile programs, which Korea many times insisted did not violate the guidelines stipulated by US-Korea agreements on restriction of South Korean rocket technology research and development.

Stimulated by the economic growth in the 1970s and 1980s, active redevelopment saw new horizons in architectural design. In the aftermath of the 1988 Seoul Olympics, South Korea has witnessed a wide variation of styles in its architectural landscape due, in large part, to the opening up of the market to foreign architects. Contemporary architectural efforts have been constantly trying to balance the traditional philosophy of 'harmony with nature' and the fast-paced urbanization that the country has been going through in recent years.

Koguryŏ was the first to open hostilities, with a bold assault across the Liao River against Liao-hsi, in 598. The Sui emperor, Wen Ti, launched a retaliatory attack on Koguryŏ but met with reverses and turned back in mid-course. Yang Ti, the next Sui emperor, proceeded in 612 to mount an invasion of unprecedented magnitude, marshalling a huge force said to number over a million men. And when his armies failed to take Liao-tung Fortress (modern Liao-yang), the anchor of Koguryŏ's first line of defense, he had a nearly a third of his forces, some 300,000 strong, break off the battle there and strike directly at the Koguryŏ capital of P'yŏngyang. But the Sui army was lured into a trap by the famed Koguryŏ commander Ŭlchi Mundŏk, and suffered a calamitous defeat at the Salsu (Ch'ŏngch'ŏn) River. It is said that only 2,700 of the 300,000 Sui soldiers who had crossed the Yalu survived to find their way back, and the Sui emperor now lifted the siege of Liao-tung Fortress and withdrew his forces to China proper. Yang Ti continued to send his armies against Koguryŏ but again without success, and before long his war-weakened empire crumbled.
• Nahm, Andrew C. A Panorama of 5000 Years: Korean History (Second revised ed.). Seoul: Hollym International Corporation. China, which had been split into many states since the early 3rd century, was reunified by the Sui dynasty at the end of the 6th century. Soon after that, Sui China mobilized a large number of troops and launched war against Koguryŏ. However, the people of Koguryŏ were united and they were able to repel the Chinese aggressors. In 612, Sui troops invaded Korea again, but Koguryŏ forces fought bravely and destroyed Sui troops everywhere.
General Ŭlchi Mundŏk of Koguryŏ completely wiped out some 300,000 Sui troops which came across the Yalu River in the battles near the Salsu River (now Ch'ŏngch'ŏn River) with his ingenious military tactics. Only 2,700 Sui troops were able to flee from Korea. The Sui dynasty, which wasted so much energy and manpower in aggressive wars against Koguryŏ, fell in 618. • Ebrey, Patricia Buckley; Walthall, Anne; Palais, James B.. Houghton Mifflin.

Here in the relatively dangerous waters on the eastern fringes of the world, they performed the same functions as did the traders of the placid Mediterranean on the western fringes. This is a historical fact of considerable significance but one which has received virtually no attention in the standard historical compilations of that period or in the modern books based on these sources....
While there were limits to the influence of the Koreans along the eastern coast of China, there can be no doubt of their dominance over the waters off these shores....

Cambridge, Massachusetts: Harvard University Press. When Parhae perished at the hands of the Khitan around this same time, much of its ruling class, who were of Koguryŏ descent, fled to Koryŏ. Wang Kŏn warmly welcomed them and generously gave them land. Along with bestowing the name Wang Kye ('Successor of the Royal Wang') on the Parhae crown prince, Tae Kwang-hyŏn, Wang Kŏn entered his name in the royal household register, thus clearly conveying the idea that they belonged to the same lineage, and also had rituals performed in honor of his progenitor. Thus Koryŏ achieved a true national unification that embraced not only the Later Three Kingdoms but even survivors of Koguryŏ lineage from the Parhae kingdom.
