Old Man



I can't claim this photo for my own, but I can claim the photo of the photo! The old man here is decrying the injustice of a divided Korea. I think the photo is quite powerful.

San Nakji for President!

Division is almost always painful.

Ah ! And is this man from South or North Korea ? I believe from South
Plenty families are separated because of this division I heard that some persons disapeared in North Korea within being able to give news to their family
I think it's the same than East / West Germany
Or after the WW2 in europe in URSS

Oh how sad...this is very moving. He really looks heartbroken and down. What a powerful picture, indeed.
