Korea Focus;Summer2007, Vol. 15 Issue 2, p10
The author reflects on the reactions of the people and government officials regarding the successful reconnection of inter-Korean railroads on May 17, 2007 that unite North and South Korea. He said that people should not get too excited since the railroad connection does not mean that the two Koreas are reunited in all fields especially in political aspects. He commented that the claim about the reunification of two Koreas is certainly an exaggeration.
