Generational Divide

Some say the real divide on the Korean peninsula is not between North and South but between young and old. Young South Koreans -- those too young to remember the Korean war -- favor rapprochement with the North. The older generation remains deeply suspicious of the North and favors the United States' get-tough approach. NPR's Eric Weiner reports from South Korea's capital, Seoul.
