I always wanted to know how it feels like standing over the line. But my curiosity was replaced by a sudden feeling of sadness. Seeing North Korea from afar is like seeing a bird wanted to fly away. Standing between freedom and suppression is like caught between nothing and impossible. Seems like the air sings a melancholic cries and tears. The wave of the oversized flag looks like it wanted to get loose and break free. And the word freedom is like a million miles away.
I came to know that DMZ is one of the most dangerous place on earth, but it turns out to be one of the loneliest places I’ve visited.
