The two Koreas’ black ops assassination teams; the North Korean who defected with a MiG jet; the involuntary park inside the demilitarised zone; and the single tree that set off an international stand-off.
A North Korean black ops assassination team got within 100 metres of the South Korean president’s house; in response, South Korea put together their own black ops team to target the North Korean leader.
In 1953 a North Korean jet fighter pilot defected to South Korea – and he brought his jet with him.
The demilitarised zone between North and South Korea has become an accidental nature park.
In 1976, North and South Korea (and the United States) almost went to war over a single tree.
