Han Dong-gyo, 87, a South Korean citizen who left behind his hometown in Hwanghae Province, North Korea, touches the pictures of past separated family reunions in front of the Red Cross office in Seoul on Thursday. There have been 18 reunions since 2000 between the two Koreas, allowing 1,874 South Koreans to see their families in the North for perhaps the last time. Han is one of the 120,000 South Koreans who have yet to see their separated kin since the end of the Korean War in 1953. It is uncertain whether the two Koreas will hold family reunions later this month as agreed to on Wednesday. (Lee Sang-sub/The Korea Herald)
