I was reading that the NK underground nuclear testing facility likely collapsed. If thatís true, it would be s good time for NK to give up on their nuclear ambitions.

People have incredibly short-term memories. No one seems to remember that the same thing happened in 2000 and 2007 as well, and those meetings did not go anywhere. What makes you think this time it'll be different?

This is different. Kim actually went to South Korea and agreed to end the war. Denuclearization is on the horizon.

His father agreed to end the war last time in 2007. 11 years after his son is agreeing to end the war again.

It's typical North Korean tactic.

It's good to be skeptical, it is indeed a typical tactic, and they are not just playing games. The difference here is 1.) added pressure by the current US Administration of not just sanctions, but destruction, 2.) added pressure it seems by China (which really was the key here). And perhaps most importantly: 3.) Apparantly N. Korea has had a catostrophic disaster at it's main test facility. Cave collapse, hundreds dead, radioactive leaks all over the place.

It may be that Kim Jung is throwing in the towel for now. He is agreeing to stop testing because he simply can't test anymore at least for the forseeable future. It may take him years to recover from his test facility disaster.

It's too early to tell whether this is actually any positive development for the two Koreas.

We'll have to wait and see what comes out of the Trump-Kim Summit.

This is a serious subject and I really hope things go well. But ... on the less serious side, I hope this will not curtail South Korea's production of TV shows and movies that so many of us enjoy! :-)
