At the height of Kim Jong-un's rhetoric aganinst South Korea, I together with my office mates decided to take the thrill of getting near the North Korean border. At that time, it was a vibrant place with celebratory mood for there were lots of tourists and there is also a theme park which in my impression was packed with visitors. Here are the sights at Imjingak, the broder between North and South Korea.
