North Korea's military is larger and more heavily funded than South Korea's.
Put a huge asterisk next to that.

North Korea
Population - 24,451,285
Military Personnel - 1,106,000
Military Reserves - 8,200,000
Military Total - 9,306,000

That's 38% of the population

South Korea
Population - 49,779,000
Military Personnel - 635,000
Military Reserves - 3,200,000
Military Total - 3,835,000

That's 8% of the population

If South Korea had 38% of its population in military service then they'd have 18,945,564 military personnel total.
