Koreans separated by war fear never seeing their families again

South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Koreans separated by war fear never seeing their families again” – below is their description.

Families divided by the Korean war could enter a lucky draw to participate in government-arranged reunion events, with 21 such events held between 2000 and 2018. But with heightened regional tensions and Covid-19 restrictions, a reunion any time soon has become less likely.
