Photo of the day #27: inter-Korean temporary family reunion


That’s another image that has been sitting in my computer waiting to be published for quite a while. I have no deep knowledge of this whole situation, but that is not needed for one to realise how sad it is for families that have been divided. As a Brazilian, I have no idea how it must be to live in a country that has been so greatly affected by war and that’s probably why I’m so obsessed about Korean books that deal with the aftermath of it and with the trauma that resulted from it.

Four hundred and thirty-six South Koreans were visiting North Korea to meet their 97 North Korean relatives, whom they have been separated from since the 1950-53 war, for three days.
