A Facebook post of a man bound in the boot of a car sends the two on an abduction investigation. When Japan began to colonize Korea in , Rhee was sent to the United States to invoke the first clause of the Korean American Treaty, which many Koreans mistakenly believed obligated the United States to defend them. Not only had they misread the treaty, but they had also misread American policy under Theodore Roosevelt, which had taken a decidedly pro-Japanese turn.
Rather than having his faith in the United States shattered, Rhee did something very American. He spent the next 40 years praising the virtues of small-town, average Americans, damning the incompetency and immorality of the federal government and extolling Americans to demand their government honour their commitments in the treaty by supporting the Korean independence movement. Doing so would be proof that Americans were the exceptional people they believed themselves to be. A grass-roots organization called the League of Friends of Korea claimed 25, members in 14 branches across the United States.
But all of this work foundered on the American desire to avoid a war with Japan. In Rhee suspected the U. The subsequent attack turned Rhee into a minor prophet. With the United States now at war with Japan, Americans were more susceptible than ever to his one-sided account of how the United States government had betrayed Korea and unleashed Japanese militarism on East Asia.
They were also susceptible to his arguments that recognizing the Korean Provisional Government of which he was a part in exile in China would bring 22 million new Korean allies into the war against Japan. Such claims, combined with a natural gift for saying what Americans wanted to hear, transformed Rhee into a wartime celebrity.

Rhee used every bit of his fame to pressure the U. In the summer of , Rep. Paul Shafer and Senators William Langer and Wayne Morse, among others, demanded action on Korea from the House and Senate floor while singer Bing Crosby, as a representative of Catholics for Korea, demanded that Korea be made independent after the war. All parties warned of dire consequences — both strategic and moral — for the United States and the postwar order if Korea was allowed to slip into the Soviet sphere of influence unchallenged, as Poland had.
The decision horrified Rhee and everyone else in his movement. They had never advocated bisecting Korea.

While this division was never intended to be permanent, it was undeniably an American idea. North Korean propaganda has twisted this story into one of American imperialism and racial aggression, albeit one based on the grain of truth that the division was an American idea. At the same time, the sense of grievance that Rhee articulated over the perceived American violations of the Korean American Treaty and American tacit support for Japanese colonialism continues in South Korea to this day.
The withdrawal of American forces from Korea in , in what many South Koreans still view as an open invitation to the North to invade, made matters worse. Because of this history, a thread of anti-Americanism runs through South Korean society.
The Next Plague Is Coming. Is America Ready?
Massive anti-American protests rocked South Korea in after the accidental killing of two Korean schoolgirls by American soldiers on exercises and in over the importation of American beef. While Korean public opinion on the United States fluctuates widely, and most Koreans still support the American presence in Korea, the vast majority of them wish this presence had never been necessary in the first place.
Understanding who divided Korea will not magically produce solutions to that division. But it will at least allow Americans to understand how Koreans on both sides of the DMZ regard themselves, to some extent, as victims of American foreign policy.
