5:44 pm
do you mean if patients and those korean lifestyle and then when i. became one with the school student. there were lots of major provocations from north korea in high school we were exposed to those korean military provocations more dan. the talks with north korea well tell me what you learned about north korea growing up my parents were very sympathetic to north korea and they thought they were very one national police think then my peers so when i found like my peers my friends or. thinking they're going to make it to be about north korea i think myspace is something also pricing to know. would you say that that chasm in terms of attitude still exists today of course when you look at the survey . when you contrast between the opinion on the part of north korea and police

5:47 pm
prosperity of south korea. the new could nuclearize in order to. pursue more cooperation with south korea how do you feel about president it's clear he's interested in a policy of engagement with north korea. he's poli sci it's the only option we have both making more engagement with north korea what do you think of north korea where most of the military i was been taught that those korean people are not the enemy. the enemy is sort of those korean regime but those korean military. i think there's something important to know that i did research service for twenty one months and this compulsory for all of those men in there when you go to the military you get too exposed to the view north korea
5:48 pm
is your enemy. this very different from society where you can have different views about. in this war in the gym you said it that the north korean regime is the enemy not the north korean people why do you think that that distinction is important i think that distinction is important because the north korean people or part could be part of the south korean families which is true for my grandpa grandfather my grandpa has moved from north korea to solve korea because he personally opposed to the communism and he's for a lot of war fighting against those korean regime in north korea our grandparents generations. loss of family was the hardest with north korean people do you think as time goes on in those ties get farther and farther away it will
5:49 pm
really shift attitudes about north korea and north koreans it has been seventeen years since i have been separated. i don't have any personal ties with those korean people. so i think that will definitely impact the south korean view of most people in those career so. is the sign of a north korean refugees his father founded the tom de lay newspaper to serve separated from their loved ones in north korea now sean is this. he says witnessing his father's quiet pain and his contributions to the community gave him a sense of responsibility to continue to run the newspaper even as refugees die and readership to. this. it was a little bit hell on all. the new. year
