Between a ROK and a hard place

Korea has been in the news lately and appears it will be for some time as the North and South are up to their usual saber-rattling, possibly abetted by their allies though that may change in the future as the usual supporters are becoming irritated with each other and their shenanigans. The Korean War is officially still going even though there has been a cease-fire since 1953. The armistice has been broken on occasion by posturing and squabbling that has led to violence. The region has a special interest to my spouse as she is Korean, has family in that country and she watches the goings-on between Northside and Southside with concern.

Here is a scene from the Korean War drama Welcome to Dongmakgol (2005). It is 3:43 in duration and worth it for the cinematography.

A lazy Sunday learning post.
