How significant is anti-American sentiment in South Korea, and a slightly different question, how significant is sentiment in favor of the government (not the people) in DRNK? In your opinion. I think most posters on this thread clearly distinguish the people of DRNK and the government. Any thoughts?

Since shelling of SK island, mood started to change. After the last election, with new president, momentum shifts further. Political right(conservatives) had been shouted down and forced to submerge under the water. They are starting to resurface. Recent N. Korean situations made it harder to be an apologist for Pyongyang. Atmosphere has changed, and the left is starting to lie low. For now. The right feels that they can count on her when it comes to NK. They hope and believe that she won't waver under non-stop threats. So far she lived up to their expectation.
As for NK people, some SK folks are not happy about their inability to rise up against Pyongyang regime. If NK folks can not do their job, the mess will be righ on the lap of SK people, some feels. Pyongyang regime is reviled and hated by a majority of people.
