In this episode of the Monsoon Podcast, Greg Thomson explores Korea’s divide – not between the North and South, but on whether reunification is wanted and workable at all.

In the decades since the Korean War, a reunified Korea has become an increasingly far-flung dream.

Why is this a dream for some and ringing alarm bells for others? Is South Korean President Moon Jae-in really representing the people by advocating for unification? And is re-unification even possible as the political and cultural divide between the nations grows ever-wider?

On this Monsoon Podcast, Greg Thomson takes these tough questions to two experts.
