De-Militarized Zone

Demilitarized Zone

Field Trip to the DMZ

I thought the kids attending Hangyeore High School were very fortunate in escaping the oppression in the North. The school has a total of 240 students, which is small compared to the total number of defects in South Korea. When I first saw the video, I was surprised at how the students didn’t know simple things such as using a phone or a computer and many other things. It shows how isolated and underdeveloped North Korea is from the rest of the world. Although the students say their life in South Korea is better, they still miss the North. The scene where they were crying for their mothers was very emotional because of how sincere the students were. Their lives were horrible in the North, and yet they call it their homeland.
