Families separated by the Korean War are running out of time to reunite with their loved ones.
According to the Ministry of Unification's Integrated Information System for Separated Families, some 35-hundred people who are part of families separated by the war passed away last year.
As of today, February 18th, only 68-thousand of the more than 129-thousand registered family members are still alive.
And time is not a friend to those awaiting the next reunion event.
Around 82 percent of them are over the age of 70.
It's already been more than a year since the last reunion event, held between February 20th and the 25th last year.
It was the first such event held by the current Park Geun-hye administration.
A total of 813 people from the two Koreas were reunited with family at that event.
