Abstract
Sokcho has a special history due to Korean Division. In fact it experienced two divisions, the first at the time of Liberation from colonial rule in Aug. 15, 1945, and the second resulting from the Korean War, so that the city was dominated by a socialist and capitalist state respectively. Quite a few families became separated during those periods, which spanned about 8 years. A great many natives also have dispersed families; that is, partial families who were displaced by the war. Sokcho itself largely consists of dispersed families, and it can be regarded as the city of dispersed families in modern Korean history.
