South Korea is on the south side of the 38th parallel and North Korea is on the north side. The 38th Parallel is about the same north latitude as Washington DC or Sacramento Calif.

so south is above north, right? cheers!

To me 'above' would mean it's hovering in the air above it. South Korea is on the same side of the border between them as the equator and North is on the same side of the border as the North Pole.

oh, but it is hovering
It's impossible for a place to be hovering!

Not to be rude,,, but North is always above South. Think about North America and South America. Is the south above the north? Or think about Minnesota and Florida even, is Minnesota filled with palm trees, and does Florida get snow in May?

Also, people from Korea or Korean decent live all over the world. Mainly South Koreans, as it is nearly impossible to escape North Korea at this time.

It's not about being rude, it's about understanding the meaning of the word. "Above" is about altitude, not latitude. An aircraft at 10,000 feet is ABOVE one at 5,000 feet. A city at 40 degrees north is NORTH of a city at 20 degrees, not above it.

I don't mean it in the way of 'hovering' above one another. Simply put, people in every day interactions use adjectives above and below to describe the latitude of a location. Is it accurate ? No. Is it what the common average person uses to describe? Yes.

no I think its below england cause I live on the border of england and sometimes through my kitchen window I can see a short korean man in a hat

South Korea is not below England. Just because u saw a Korean man doesn't mean Korea is nearby.... Look at a globe.
