I got the impression that the left there thought that in “reunification”, the NK’s would suddenly see the light and everyone would just live happily ever after.
I do not believe that SK has the true will to fight NK unless things get so bad they have to do do, and you can be sure that the left in SK will be in the streets blaming the SK government and not the poor NK commies.
Again, it's been awhile since I have been there, so if someone has current knowledge, I would be interested in your take.
My son was there in the mid 90s and he did/ does not have a high opinion of SKs,period.
My brother was over there when Ford was President. He was schedled to go again in the late 80s. He retired.
