For the first time since the cold war, the tension between Usa and North Korea has risen following Kim 's nuclear tests. Trump sent first bombers over the border with Northern Korea. I decided to see how the local people are feeling about it. On October 21st I arrived in Munsan Town in the Gyeonggi Do region close to the edge of demilitarized zone where I found absolute tranquillity among the people. Nobody here seems to fear Kim and life continues without fear. There are many soldiers around the city but no one is armed. Children go around alone, people meet in small places where they eat, talk and spend time together. The local markets and shops are crowded with people. While the whole world is worried about what can happen, in these parts, Munsan lives without any tension.
