In the Republic of Korea, besides issues with Japan, North Korea is constantly looming around in the back of the people’s collective consciousness. Why am I suddenly writing about this?

On July 6, we wrote about North Korea having a girl group that can be considered similar to the Girls’ Generation. It looks as though there were rumors that the First Lady (Lee Sul Joo) to the current leader of North Korea, was thought to have been a part of the North Korean girl group. That has not been confirmed yet, but pictures of her have surfaced and the Korean populace is very interested in her because of her beautiful looks.

Naturally, I thought it would be interesting to look back at the different South Korean films that portrayed or had as its subject, the relationship between North and South Korea.

Hope you enjoy!
