Images of North Korea and South Korea pervade US mainstream media. North Korea is at once a laughing stock, a threat, a human rights tragedy. The South has become the land of K-pop, hi-tech, high fashion: cool Korea. What lies behind these opposing images? Are there any commonalities between North Korean and South Korean culture? Listen to Hughes discuss the Cold War history of national division on the Korean peninsula and the possibilities of reconciliation and reunification.
