“One for All, All for One”
 

Finally in the 173rd Try

 
In November 1959, Ri Hong Ryol, a worker at a sheet metal processing shop of a chemical factory arrived at the Wonsan Railway station of Kangwon Province at midnight.
He was there to find out a co-worker’s sister lost during the Fatherland Liberation War.
He always wanted to alleviate mental suffering of the fellow worker who would pass a sleepless nights, obsessed with the thought that his sister was alive somewhere.
Ri Hong Ryol sent a great number of letters to various parts of the country after came back home though he was tired with his work.
Meanwhile he received a reply letter saying that co-worker’s sister was seen in Wonsan, Kangwon Province, but her address was not known.
Ri Hong Ryol left his home immediately.
He searched village offices and then neighborhood units in Wonsan for her.
He visited a certain place twice or thrice since he was unfamiliar to the city. Sometimes he wanted to give it up. After going through all troubles he found the woman at the 173rd neighborhood unit.
The woman was surprised to see the sincere efforts that Ri Hong Ryol made for his fellow worker. The woman who eagerly looked forward to see his younger brother cried again and again, seeing the picture of his younger brother in her hands.
The reunion of the sister and younger brother who did not know each other’s living or death for nine years touched the people to the heart.
