PANMUNJOM, Korea — As North Koreans cheered and waved white “unified Korea” flags, a South Korean activist was arrested as soon as he set foot on home soil Thursday, resisting police in a stunt of defiance after an unapproved, three-month stay in the North.
Turning around to face crowds of cheering North Koreans before stepping over the line, No Su-hui raised his arms and shouted “Long live reunification,” a white unified Korea flag in his right hand and a bouquet of flowers in his left. Behind him on the South Korean side, South Korean soldiers stood in taekwondo poses, their eyes concealed behind dark sunglasses.
Does anyone not think of that clip being south crossing into north?

By reading this article I wonder how many South Koreans want to be ruled by North Korea?

Yes, they would need to run some security checks on him, but plenty of North Koreans have made it over the border before and not been treated like this. I don't understand why they would behave like that unless they WANTED to continue hostilities with the North.

Great story...It seems to me that the people of Korea want to be one and not separated. I'd like to see it happen in my lifetime but it's unlikely.

I bet this doesn't make the North Korean news. Still a little bit surprised that the South allowed for this to happen, and even promoted it as much as they did. Maybe they should just make a daily routine of this, shouting across the boarder thing.

Just a quick thought, and I think I'm wrong, but wouldn't reunification be disastrous for the whole peninsula? All of a sudden South Korea would have to spend billions on providing food, clothing, housing, health care, and other basic needs to millions from the North. (I'm assuming the peninsula wouldn't reunite under North Korean control. Why would the South ever agree to that?)
What am I missing?
