A Photographer Shows Differences Between North and South Korea, and They Are Impressive

Articles Apr 08, 2019 00:02

In 1945, Korea was divided into South Korea and North Korea. For more than 70 years, relations between these 2 countries have been rather tense. It was only recently that Korean leaders managed to conduct a productive summit (September 18-19, 2018) during which they agreed on a number of united activities to help the countries to regain their bonds.

Despite the fact that communist North Korea and democratic South Korea are neighbors, the life in these 2 countries is totally different. Photographer Ed Jones decided to capture it and show to the rest of the world. In the photos you can see that clothes, interiors, and environments are more modern in South Korea. But the soul of these people is definitely the same.

Bright Side was impressed by these photos and wants you to see them as well.
