Would you visit South or North Korea?

Although North Korea has threatened war too many times to count, now that they have been officially blamed for sinking the Cheonan some people are taking the current talk of war more seriously.

My sister said that the war had better not start before her planned visit this July. My wife says if she’s doing a DMZ tour while war breaks out to get the dogs in the car and drive south without her (we live in Seoul).

What do you say? Would you consider visiting Korea now or ever? What about North Korea?

    North Korea – no never! South Korea if I had the chance. I think DMZ tours would be “iffy” at this time. From one day to the next, North Korea is very unpredictable and might very well decide the DMZ is off limits at any time. I don’t think I would chance it.

    James, are you sure you live in Korea. You didn’t spell the Capital of Korea correctly.

    I don’t think I would ever visit North Korea. That regime is too nutty and unpredictable. But I am really looking forward to visiting South Korea again this summer and hope North Korea backs down soon.
