I am interested to find out who are the most well-known Americans in South Korea and why are they so well known.
I think most famous American in Korea is Barack Obama
because he is president of America korean can see him in news or internet and many things
other famous Amarican is general Douglas Macarthur he is hero in south korea because
in korean war(1950~1953)
south korea was losing against north korea
but when 1950-9-15 general Macarthur attacked incheon
From that time south korea was started winning
So, Macathur is hero in korea,korean can see his picture in hystory book and we study what he did in korean war
And korean know a lot of American movie star or politician or singer and band because development of internet So, I can't typing however korea know many many Americans
Thank you for responding! Glad to hear about MacArthur; my grandfather was a Marine who landed at Incheon. I am interested to hear if Lewis Burwell ("Chesty") Puller is well known. My grandfather personally met him :)
