On August 22, members of separated families had farewell meetings at the banquet hall on the second floor of the Mount Kumgang Hotel from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Although the farewell reunions were originally planned to continue two hours including lunch, the time was extended to three hours to soothe the sorrow of parting.

They, saddened by separation, did not let go of each other’s hands and embraced each other. They had their last meals together and said goodbye to each other. When they said, “Let’s meet again” or “Stay healthy,” their eyes were filled with tears.

Now, the members of separated families, who had brief reunions of three days and two nights, will leave Mt. Geumgang and return to the South.

On August 23, another group of people will gather in Sokcho for a second round of reunions (August 24-26).
