Just an idea - but maybe you could combine multiple things into one quiz too. e.g. "bodies of water on the world map", with seas, rivers and lakes.
Also, if we are talking east of Korea, then here is the story.
Japan and Korea (yes not North and South Korea they were one country) were arguing about the sea, Japan thought the sea was called the Sea of Japan, but Korea thought it was called the Sea of Korea, so Japan conquered Korea, as always, and they declared it the Sea of Japan.
It used to be eastsea in old english aswell.
Thanks for the great quiz KoljiVriVoda! Once again, I've learnt something new. You see, I knew about Bering Strait, but have NEVER ever heard about Bering Sea.
This quiz is Earth-centric.
"[The] Sea of Japan is the dominant term used in English for the sea, and the name in most European languages is equivalent, but it is sometimes called by different names in surrounding countries...
...The use of the term 'Sea of Japan"' as the dominant name is a point of contention. South Korea wants the name 'East Sea' to be used, either instead of or in addition to 'Sea of Japan'"
Maybe you could convince the quiz's author to accept the East Sea as an alternative answer.
