The two leaders shook hands last month during the inter-Korean summit. Visitors near Seoul can reenact the move in a much less tense environment.
The replica is located in a movie set close to the South Korean capital. It was built for the blockbuster “JSA: Joint Security Area,” which was released in 2000. The film is based off the book “DMZ” and follows an investigation of two North Korean soldiers killed in the Korean Demilitarized Zone.
Though there’s less at stake than in the film or the actual village, visitors must still hurry if they want to get their own handshake photo. The replica is reportedly being torn down this month, as the movie studio will be relocating to Busan.
