Cheorwon, located about 50 miles northeast of Seoul along the Demilitarized Zone, is one of many towns altered by the Korean peninsula's changing borders.
It is a rural town of about 50,000 where visitors can leave their car engines running, step away for an ice cream break on a sweltering summer day and find their car waiting when they return half an hour later.
But as we approached the DMZ during a trip to Cheorwon in August, rolling along narrow rural roads outfitted with blockades hefty enough to prevent a tank invasion, the relaxed atmosphere disappeared.
