There is a saying in the Bible about the importance of the many parts making one body.
“that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. 26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.” – 1 Cor. 12:25-26
It was from this particular bible verse that inspired this drawing. I wanted to depict how North and South Korea was of one body (one Korea), and that it was impossible to see them as separate entities. Whenever one part of the body does well, the whole body rejoices. But if one suffers, all suffer together because that’s just how intricately connected they are. Likewise, South Korea cannot ignore North Korea’s problems, just because they are out of sight and isolated from the rest of the world. As one body, they have to see these problems as a part of their problems as well, and only by doing so will they be collectively able to reap the full benefits of a well-functioning body (one Korea).
