Do you support the unificiation of Korea (either as a DPRK under Pyongyang or ROK under Seoul )?

They should be reunited under the RoK and their benevolent American masters. After all, I heard that they are performing horrible medical experiments in Yodok and that it is no better than Nazi Germany. I believe that Kim Jong-il was starving his people while drinking Henessy cognac. I also heard that they are reducing the bodies of gulag inmates to soap. I read all off the internet and also read the books of DPRK critics, so it must be true.

No/ pro status quo. Unification under DPRK is impossible today and a unification under ROK would be good for the south koreans but extremely bad for the north koreans because the discrimination and inequalities would always be there as it happens today in Germany despite the long years after the unification.

I voted other. I support the unification, but both populations will have to prepare peace and find an agreement.

The Korean peninsula will never be truly reunited except through socialism, anything less would be more subjugation. The DPRK won't survive this but the United Korean people will surely remember its best parts fondly.

I have a sinking feeling that if the DPRK collapsed and the RoK took over, then we'll be hearing about how the DPRK wasn't a bad place after all, and how now the bourgeoisie from the south bought everything.
As much as I dislike the way the DPRK is run, I doubt that a takeover from the south would be in its benefit.

Other: No nation, no border.

Yes, under the RoK, for the sole purpose of pissing off juche pseudo-reds and creating a unified block against Japanese whitewashing.

While it would be better for Korea to become an unified socialist nation, the hyper-militaristic, social-reactionary, repressive Juche system is not the way forward for the Korea. Placing the RoK's population under Juche rule would be callous: Barracks socialism ain't a desirable fate. And placing the DPRK's territory under RoK rule is simply unconscionable: American bourgeois and their South Korean compradors would just plunder the infrastructure and resources the North Korean people own and paid for in their sweat and blood.
Eventual reunification is desirable, but not in a way that either regime (The totalitarian Kims or the pretty-much-fascist Seoul compradors) can play as a conquest or a political victory.
What Korea needs is peace. Not a ceasefire, not a Cold-War truce... Actual fraggin' peace. An end to the saber-rattling would help diminish both Pyongyang and Seoul's own brutal militarisms, allow closer ties between the two nations and pave the way for reunification in the future.

I voted RoK because people there are happier than in the North, according to the liberal media. By all accounts, North Koreans are a vicious and stunted breed of dwarves who live underground and exist on a crude subsistence diet supplied by the good ole' US of A.
Actually, I don't know anything about South. Maybe things are bad there, too. But probably not so much.

The Korean nation must be unified on any terms the people there see fit.

It won't be a unification, it'll be an annexation.
