DMZ Video Hall: The Pains of National Division
  • The Video Hall projects an 8-minute video clip about the situation in South and North Korea from the armistice until now, and shows the sufferings of war, and the armistice. Unfortunately, there are no foreign language subtitles as yet, but the video is well worth watching for anyone who is interested in the war, the cease-fire, the historical significance of the truce line, and the pain of war.

    The flame on the acrylic wall at the hall entrance is called the “Fire of Memory”. It was created to remember the painful Korean War which claimed some 6 million lives.

  • The war, which lasted 3 years and 1 month, took countless young lives. The fire model, which will never be quenched as it is artificial, was created to commemorate their sacrifice and to remind us of the heart-breaking history of the nation, which must never be repeated.
