{{More citations needed|date=March 2013}}The anti-American sentiment in Korea began with the earliest contact between the two nations and continued after the division of Korea. In both North Korea and South Korea, anti-Americanism after the Korean War has focused on the presence and behavior of American military personnel (USFK), aggravated especially by high-profile crimes by U.S. service members, with various crimes including rape and assault, among others. The 2002 Yangju highway incident especially ignited Anti-American passions.WEB,weblink Road deaths ignite Korean anti-Americanism, 2008-04-11, International Herald Tribune, August 1, 2002, dead,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20070915160744weblink">weblink September 15, 2007, Anti-American sentiments have served as catalysts for protests such as the Daechuri Protest, which challenged the expansion of the U.S military base, Camp Humphreys. The ongoing U.S. military presence in South Korea, especially at Yongsan Garrison (on a base previously used by the Imperial Japanese Army from 1910-1945) in central Seoul, remains a contentious issue. However, 74% of South Koreans have a favorable view of the U.S., making South Korea one of the most pro-American countries in the world.Views of US Continue to Improve in 2011 BBC Country Rating Poll {{webarchive|url=https://web.archive.org/web/20121123070720weblink |date=2012-11-23 }}, March 7, 2011.While protests have arisen over specific incidents, they are often reflective of deeper historical, anti-Western sentiment. Robert Hathaway, director of the Wilson Center's Asia program, suggests: "the growth of anti-American sentiment in both Japan and South Korea must be seen not simply as a response to American policies and actions, but as reflective of deeper domestic trends and developments within these Asian countries."JOURNAL,weblink The Making of "Anti-American" Sentiment in Korea and Japan, May 6, 2003, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, 2012-04-04
