Abstract : During the last century, Korea and the United States have maintained a cordial and friendly relationship. Normally, Korea is considered to be a pro- American country in international society and that has been true. However in recent years, it has not always been the case considering the recent phenomena happening in Korean society. How can it happen that Korea cannot be pro-American given that Korea normally had been dependent on the United States? In this paper, the reality of the Korean's perception of America is analyzed by focusing on the historical facts that affected Koreans' perceptions throughout their relationships between the United States and Korea. Also, the recent causes of negative perceptions of America are examined.
