West Korea is a pejorative term for China. In Chinese the term is literally “the North Korea of the West;” thus the comparison is with North Korea and not South Korea. Netizens complain about the similarities between North Korea and China: repressive rulers, lack of democracy, corruption, fear of the West, etc. While in all these aspects China is superior to North Korea, there is one aspect in which China lags behind.
