Translated excerpts from the  text…

Many colorful ribbons tied to a barbed wire fence flutter in the wind. On each ribbon is written Korean people’s wishes  that one day North  and South Korea will be reunified as one. It is a symbolic sight in Imgingak, the northernmost  place  that South Korean  civilans are permitted to travel. When the Korean War 1950-53 ended the North and South were separated by the DMZ.Many families torn apart by the barbed-wire fence couldn’t meet again.
