South Korea and North Korea are the only divided country in the word and their 70-year of confrontation is a vestige of the Cold War as the military tension between the two countries have continued since 1953. Recently, however, North Korea and South Korea leaders have signed an agreement aimed at easing military tensions along the countries' border, the most heavily armed in the world in the third summit meeting in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. President Kim, the leader of North Korea, has agreed to dismantle missile facilities and promised additional moves toward denuclearization while the South has suspended joint military action with the United States.
KSEA is launching a new Korean film series to celebrate this monumental diplomatic shift between the North and South Korea. We will be screening a film on the Korean War and how it destroyed the peninsula to show why wars should be avoided by all means. The 1950-1953 Korean War was halted in truce but has not ended yet.
The screening is from 7 to 9 p.m., Friday, Oct. 19, in Gilman 50. The event is open to the public.
Korean snacks will be provided. Please register to attend.
