For most of us who love almost everything about Korea, the extent of influence it has on us extended way beyond Korean food, language, culture, television dramas and K-Pop…it has delved deeper within us to the point that it has also become a part of our daily lives. Together with their citizens, we also hope for a peaceful reunification of North Korea and South Korea…for a One Korea.
