S. Korea opens peace-themed DMZ tourist attraction


The Korea Tourism Organization and the culture
ministry held the opening ceremony for the “New Lane towards Peace”. This is part of their global campaign promoting
the DMZ as a tourist spot. Hong Yoo provides a glimpse of the big event. The railroad on Dokgae Bridge was the only
rail link over the Imjingang River, connecting the South and North. It was bombarded during the Korean War and
it remains destroyed to this day. But what would it look like if the railroad
was reconnected? On Wednesday, media art was used to show how
people would travel along the railway which goes not just to North Korea, but beyond to
the entire Eurasian continent, becoming the “New Lane towards Peace”. Pictures of finger hearts and messages wishing
for peace from more than 57 thousand people from 190 countries decorated the interior
of the train. “Through the #LoveForDMZ campaign we hope
to position the DMZ as the place where peace starts instead of a place that symbolizes
war and separation.” Descendants of Korean War veterans from the
U.S. and Thailand were present at the ceremony and received a plaque of appreciation. “My dream is to be able to go to Heungnam
and to Hamheung because Heungnam was where my grandfather was, where they rescued 100,000
refugees during the Korean war.” “The virtual railway that can be seen inside
the media train will continue to show the messages of peace and hope for the Korean
Peninsula written by tourists that visit the demilitarized zone. Hong Yoo, Arirang News, Paju.”
