The fundamental definition of peace is absence of war. For 70 years, the Korean people have lived in two vastly different worlds, separated by the coldness of geopolitics. Those who predate the peninsulas’ division endure painful memories of colonial occupation, and struggle to fill the void left by their brothers and sisters caught on the other side of the 38th parallel. Today, the ordinary people of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea live their lives despite the threat of “fire and fury”. They try to make ends meet, they love, they marry and they raise their children. As their kids go to school, the people of Pyongyang share the desire with their neighbours: that one day, their children finds true peace.
