70 years since the Korean War, thousands still waiting to reunite with families
Advocate for separated families says the matter should be discussed "regardless of political situation"

More than 50,000 South Koreans are still waiting to reunite with their family members in the North, with Thursday marking 70 years since the Korean War began in 1950.

More than 80,000 divided family members have already passed away in South Korea, according to recent government data, prompting advocates to call for more family reunions regardless of the state of inter-Korean affairs.
