North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un has in recent weeks ended a sixty year old cease fire agreement, threatened to launch nuclear strikes and has all but shut down a lucrative joint industrial park.

Roughly 5,500 South Koreans live on Baengnyeong Island in the Yellow Sea. Almost all of the north coast is lined with cement walls and fences topped with concertina wire. There are only a few ports for fishing boats. But not many are venturing out these days.
