‘It felt quite serious last night, and I was thinking that if a war started I would have to go back into military service,’ said Kwak Kyeh-nyong, a Seoul-based lighting designer, sipping an early-morning espresso to nurse a hangover after a night of pre-birthday partying. ‘I did my military service very close to the North Korean border. Every day I went to the demilitarized zone. If a war had started I would have been dead within five minutes.’” [NYT]
