    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.
