More tears shed at family reunion


Kim Rye-jeong, a 96-year-old South Korean mother, chokes up with tears when she met her 71-year-old daughter Wu Jong-hye on Oct. 30 for the first time since the two were separated in 1950. Wu was 11-years-old when Kim lost contact with her when she fled to the South during the Korean War. Kim, who requires a wheelchair to get around, is the oldest South Korean participant in the fresh round of family reunions, which began over the weekend at Mount Kumgang resort in North Korea.

1950년에 헤어진 이후로 처음으로 10월30일 남한의 96세 김예정 할머니와 북한의 71세 딸 우정혜씨가 감격의 재회를 하고 있다. 한국전쟁 때 11살이었던 우씨는 남한으로 피난을 떠난 어머니와 소식이 끊겼다. 휠체어에 몸을 의지해야 하는 김 할머니는 주말에 북한의 금강산에서 열린 1차 남북이산가족 상봉행사에서 최고령자이다. [사진공동취재단]
