    Sortof. The hanja used for his surname is the character for gold, but the actual word for gold is "geum."

    China's involvement in North Korea makes perfect sense and I'd argue that China has a stronger influence than the US does (in this scenario). We must also consider the consequences of NK failing. The refugees will flee the country into China and China will be forced to react. For a country that operates so secluded, it's a delicate situation.
    Then we have to consider the ethnic geographic complexities of where this territory belongs, as SK and Japan have a mixed relationship, and China seeks to expand more into the South China Sea. China has a geographic, economic and demographic superiority which the US has only military force.
    NK only became a serious situation once they went nuclear and now they are forcing international involvement.
