A 93 year old South Korean man has just met his 64 year old son for the very first time.
During the Korean War, the man was separated from his pregnant wife and was never able to meet his son, until now, 64 years later.
The Korean War divided many families and recently around 80 elderly South Koreans met their North Korean relatives whom they hadn’t seen in over 60 years.
The reunion was held at a mountain resort in North Korea after intense negotiations between North and South in the hope to restore inter-Korean co-operation.
Many families just hugged and sobbed while others could only stare in disbelief that their loved ones were really before them.
The reunion saw many families reunited and others introduced to relatives they never knew even existed.
