Abstract

There were a lot of issues involving the establishment of a new independent government on the Korean Peninsula after its emancipation from the Japanese Empire in 1945. One of the most critical issues relating to Korea's future economic system was land reform (nongji gaehyeok ), a question faced by both the South and North. In North Korea land reform was implemented in early 1946 by the Interim People's Committee, with Soviet support, on the socialist principle of " uncompensated redistribution" (musang bunbae) of land. In South Korea, discussions began in the Interim Legislative Assembly in 1947 before the establishment of the Republic of Korea (ROK, or South Korea) government and in the face of loud opposition on the part of landlords. South Korea's land reform was carried out shortly before the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950, one year after the law and regulations were enacted in the National Assembly. (The rest omitted)
