In the reunion of separated Korean families at a Mount Kumgang reception house Saturday afternoon, South Korean Lee Jeong-ho (left), 76, is in tears while hugging his brother Lee Kwae-seok, 79, who has lived in the North since being taken prisoner during the Korean War. Upon hearing that his mother passed away 13 years ago in his first meeting with his brother in 59 years, Lee Kwae-seok had tears well up in his eyes, saying, “I`ve never once forgotten about my mother.”
