Prior to the establishment of the Republic of Korea, political and diplomatic leaders have shared an understanding of the global trends involving the United States. First, political diplomatic leaders anticipated the United States to actively intervene in the Korean issue before the liberation. Second, they strongly criticized the activities of the US-USSR Joint Commission and the US-led Right-Left Coalition movement after the liberation. Third, they argued that the continual support of the United States after the recognition of the Republic of Korea by the UN would prevent Korean communization. With respect to communism, Chang Taek-sang expressed the anti-communism using physical force against the terror of the communists, saying that the Left-Right Coalition Committee would communize the south region. Like Syngman Rhee, Brian Lim maintained an anti -communist position based on a historical understanding and the comparative political context. Pyon Yong-tae analytically recognized the possibility of communism in Korea as the world would be reorganized into two entities, the US and the Soviet Union. ROK diplomatic organizations were designed based on the cognition on the US, Asia, Europe and strong anti-communism. Practitioners studying in the United States and in Japan designed diplomatic structure under the direction of Chang Taek-sang, who accepted the ideological flow of the West. The organizational structure was similar to that of Japan, with the creation regional divisions responsible for the America, Asia and Europe. Brian Lim actively pursued diplomacy with the United States to resolve security and economic problems, and negotiated with countries around the world for the recognition of the Republic of Korea by the UN. The early political and diplomatic leaders of the Republic of Korea maintained the specific cognition on the region and anti-communism, and made particular achievements in the practice of diplomatic activities and policymaking.
