See, an those silly foreigners who listened to te media hype, quit their jobs/contracts early, all for nothing. Life goes on, NK whines about something, throughs a temper tantrum and eventually shuts the hell up and starts apologizing. Wash, rinse, repeat.

North Korea has agreed to a South Korean proposal to resume reunions of families separated since the 1950-1953 war, official media in Pyongyang say.

The reunion meetings would take place in the Chuseok holiday on 19 September.

South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye called last week for the resumption of the reunions, last held in 2010.

Her appeal followed an agreement to reopen a joint industrial plant, the latest step in the easing of tension between the two countries.

The latest statement on the reunions came from the North’s Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea.

It said: “The reunion of separated families and their relatives shall be made in Mt Kumgang resort on the occasion of the upcoming Harvest Moon Day.”

Talks will take place on 23 August at Mt Kumgang to prepare for the reunions.

The statement also called for the resumption of tourist trips to Mt Kumgang.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
