When Japan surrendered in August 1945, the 38th parallel was established as the boundary between Soviet and American occupation zones. The Soviets decided to move into Korea from the north which made the US fearful of the spread of communism and the US did not want the Soviet Union to take over all of the Korean peninsulae. The Soviet Union and the US agreed to divide Korea at this drawn line, more commonly known as the 38th parallel.
