SEOUL/WASHINGTON -- After years of walking a thin line between the U.S. and China, South Korea's government and chipmakers face pressure to pick a side in the growing technological rivalry between its military ally and its largest trade partner.

The U.S. is preparing to hold a preliminary meeting for the proposed Chip 4 initiative, designed to stabilize semiconductor supply chains. Besides the U.S., the envisioned partnership includes Japan, a leader in semiconductor-manufacturing materials; Taiwan, the top producer of cutting-edge chips; and South Korea, whose output capacity is second only to Taiwan's.

This has been a hot topic in the semiconductor ecosystem with the Samsung Foundry event coming up. Will South Korea be able to stay out of the chip war between the US and China?

To say nothing of folks like SK who are also heavily invested in the PRC.
