“I fought in the front line in civil war that divided brothers to brothers,” he said. “ It is an atrocity when brother kill another brother.” As an advocate of peace Mr. Lee said that the unification of North and South Korea needs to happen. “ Korea needs to be reunified as one, there is not any reason to reject it,” he added.
