Question
I would like to know if there is any difference between korean methodist and united methodist churches
     please help if you can ,, Thank you ShiELA

Answer
If you mean the Korean Methodist Church in South Korea, they are an autonomous-affiliated/daughter Church of the UMC with over 1,500,000 members in South Korea.  There are United Methodist Churches in the USA with significant Korean membership and worship in Korean, but they are usually part of the  UMC not the Korean Methodist Church.

I hope this helps.
