Relations Worsen between North and South Korea

After the death of a South Korean Tourist in a North Korean tourist zone, North Korea plans to expel South Korean workers from Mount Kumgang, a mountain resort on the eastern coast. Interestingly enough, this location is regarded as a middle ground or neutrality zone between the two in hopes of peace in the future. South Korea currently has suspended tourism, and North Korea is on edge with its resort and has military reinforcement for "even the slightest hostile actions”. Kumgang was, and hopefully will be in the future, a hot spot for travelers – especially South Koreans.
