One Love, Two Koreas?

This article in the Asia Times is quite interesting. Seems that a South Korean and North Korean worker plan to marry. The couple work in Kaesong, North Korea -- Kaesong is a city on the border of South and North Korea where there are currently some development projects going on such as a new electronics factory and other businesses operated by South Korean companies -- and its possible that maybe that more relationships like this will develop as the two countries create more ties. Also on NK is this article on the appearance of new restaurants in Pyongyang by John Feffer. Maybe it will be frequented by workers in these new factories. I guess the question many have had for a while is if this new South/North economic zone is going to work. It seems that it may indeed take off, perhaps putting NK on a trajectory similar to China's, but its way too early to really tell...
