Unification Park @ Jeongdongjin (part 3)
Oh, there is one more thing that we could see at the Unification Park @ Jeongdongjin...-->
the 35-long submarine used by the North Korea which was stranded on the coast off Jeongdongjin.
We got to wear the helmet, should we want to go inside....!!
BUT I RECOMMEND NOT TO..because..the smell was horrendous!!
Better enjoy it from outside...:)
anyway...story has it that this submarine was captured in 1996!!! with lives lost both from South and North. Including civilians...sadly.
anyway..enough with the history...
but..the mere fact that this 35-meter long captured North Korean submarine was being exhibited right here....is a sheer reminder of how tense the North-South relation was/is/has been/...will be??? hope NOT.
