Korea and America, North and South
Preventing carpetbagging exploiters, rampant discrimination, historical whitewashes all look post-unification challenges
“Our country ... In bits and pieces, this phrase was again slowly coming to mean North and South, one and the same.”Was this quote, referring to “our country” (uri nara in Korean) uttered by some Korean patriot, yearning for the unification of his country? No, this phrase is taken from the compelling American Civil War history book April 1865: The Month That Saved America by Jay Winik.
