  1. Korea's divided families

  2. South Korean Min Ho-shik (C), 84, reacts as he meets his North Korean younger sister Min Eun Shik, 81, during the separated family reunions at Mount Kumgang resort, North Korea, October 20, 2015. Nearly 400 South Koreans crossed the heavily armed border into North Korea on Tuesday full of joyful anticipation at reuniting with family members separated for more than six decades since the 1950-53 Korean War.

  3. South Korean Lee Soon-kyu (L), 85, meets with her North Korean husband Oh Se In, 83, during the separated family reunions, at Mount Kumgang resort, North Korea, October 20, 2015. The reunion of 90 South Koreans and 96 North Koreans, the 20th of its kind, will be held at a resort in the North, mostly in a large ballroom under the watchful eye of officials.

  4. South Korean Lee Jung-sook (R), 68, whispers to her North Korean father Lee Heung Jong, 88, during the separated family reunions at Mount Kumgang resort, North Korea, October 20, 2015. The reunions are politically important for the South, where 66,000 people are on a waiting list to see long-lost relatives, a number that is shrinking fast, while the North also seeks to maximize their domestic propaganda value.

  5. North and South Korean family members meet during the separated family reunions at Mount Kumgang resort, North Korea, October 20, 2015. The two Koreas, bitter rivals that remain in a technical state of war, agreed to hold family reunions for the first time since February 2014 after negotiating the end of a standoff at their heavily militarized border.

  6. South Korean Lim Choong-hwan (L), 72, meets with his North Korean relative Lim Ok Rye, 82, during the separated family reunions at Mount Kumgang resort, North Korea, October 20, 2015. Families separated since the war have no means of communication and often do not know if relatives on the other side are surviving. REUTERS/KOREA POOL/Yonhap

  7. Park Jong-hwan, 80, who is selected as a participant for a reunion, poses for a photograph with an old picture at a hotel used as a waiting place in Sokcho, South Korea, October 19, 2015. The reunions, held in a ballroom at the Mount Kumgang resort, are watched by officials and media and include only two hours of private time before they end on Thursday. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji

  8. Buses transporting South Korean participants for a reunion travel on the road leading to North Korea's Mount Kumgang resort, in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) separating the two Koreas in this picture taken from the Unification Observatory, just south of the DMZ in Goseong, South Korea, October 20, 2015. South Korean participants are advised to steer clear of a long list of topics, such as the North's political leadership or living standards, to the frustration of some of the visitors.

  9. South Korean participants for a reunion arrive at the South's CIQ (Customs, Immigration and Quarantine), just south of the DMZ in Goseong, South Korea, October 20, 2015.
