Korean family reunions

Among those reunited with their family was Kim Hong-kyun (2nd left), a former South Korean fisherman abducted by the North in 1968. Accompanied by his North Korean wife, Kim, now aged 62, was reunited with his mother and younger brother.

These pictures struck me as really powerful. Some of these people haven't been able to see each other since 1953. It's so wrong, just imagine the Berlin Wall still standing...

approximately 90.000 people who haven't seen their relatives since the Korean War ended. That's more than a motherfucking shitload!

This really cheers me up (not)!
