DMZ Unification Train Tour

Dreaming of Becoming A Reunited Nation One DayThe Train Runs with Hopes for All of Us梦想着终有一天成为一家的那一天带着大家的愿望奔跑的火车There is a land whose waist is cut, and is in severe pain. The land seems increasingly forgotten as time passes. But we must remember those days when we could freely run to the end of that land. We should not forget it was initially a part of an integrated, single land. So, let us travel by train, embracing the ardent longing for the peaceful unification of Korea in our hearts. As such, the DMZ Unification Train runs energetically until Korea becomes on again. 

曾经有过因为拦腰而断,在痛苦的岁月中度过的土地。随着时间流逝,这个地方好像逐渐被遗忘。但是,我们要记住曾经有过自由奔跑到尽头的过去。因为我们不可或忘曾经是一个土地,所以在列车带着对和平统一的恳切愿望出发。就这样,DMZ统一列车梦想着成为一家的那一天,充满有力地奔跑着。

A Shiny Start for the Unification Train

统一列车耀眼的开始

On July 22, 2015, the DMZ Unification Train Tour was launched with big fanfare. Marking the 70th anniversary of our longing for the reunification of Korea, the DMZ Unification Train Tour engages the youth to talk about the unification of Korea, to take a tour of the security sites in a bid to share the need for unification, and to prepare for unification.

The Ministry of Government Administration and Home Affairs, KORAIL, and KB Financial Public Foundation held an MOU signing ceremony to facilitate the operations of the DMZ Unification Train Tour, and appointed PR ambassadors for the DMZ Unification Train Tour. Participants of the first DMZ Unification Train Tour included the Minister of Government Administration and Home Affairs, university students, etc., while the second tour included the Unification Minister, children, and North Korean defectors who are now high school students. The third tour included the Minister of Patriots and Veterans Affairs, high school students, and university students. The DMZ Unification Train Tour along the DMZ has played a major role in sharing the need for Korean unification and the importance of security among all generations.

The Train Runs Powerfully, Carrying the Story of Unification

列车载着统一故事,充满有力地奔跑

The DMZ Unification Train Tour discusses the unification of Korea aboard the train, and it includes an observation tour of security sites while talks on the theme of unification were conducted. Participants share their opinions on the necessity of unification through the talks and Q&A sessions.

Arriving at the frontline area, participants go on an observation tour of the North Korean tunnel in its attempt to infiltrate South Korea, the Unification Observatory, divided Korean sites, and Army units where various military weapons were stored. In the battlefields, participants held a moment of silence for the souls of the soldiers who died as patriots during the Korean War.

The DMZ Unification Train runs through the Gyeongui Line or the Gyeongwon Line for an observation tour of the frontline area, while detailed itineraries vary, depending on each tour. The DMZ Unification Train Tour seeks to share the stark reality of a divided Korea, to raise awareness on the necessity of unification, and to motivate people to work for a peaceful unification.

‘DMZ统一列车旅行’由奔跑的列车上共享的统一故事与前方地区的安保现场见习组成。列车内以统一为主题,进行TalkConcert。通过跟参与者的统一故事,提问与回答,安排对统一同感的时间。到达前方地区,见习包括洞穴与展望台的分断现场,访问陆军部队了解各种军事武器,在战绩地安排对6·25战争护国英灵的默祷的时间。DMZ统一列车在京义线或者京元线奔跑,欣赏前方地区,日程根据每次不同地进行。‘DMZ统一列车旅行’为了一起感受韩国的分断现实,加深对统一的必要性与和平统一的意志,奠定了契机。
