With US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un trading sabre-rattling threats and North Korea launching nuclear tests, North and South Korea could be faced with the prospect of a disastrous refugee crisis war does break out.
If the US managed to wipe out the depraved regime overnight, experts have long said the painful process of a reunification between the North and South would begin.
The collapse of Kim’s state, which has a population of 25 million people, could spark a devastating famine, with the prices of food sky rocketing as the wealthy try to keep food for themselves.
As millions face the prospect of living without their supreme leader, and a lack of money, food and shelter, they too could seek refuge in South Korea putting Seoul under huge pressure.
But the North Koreans face the prospect of being treated as second class citizens once integrated into society after entering as poor, uneducated, brainwashed and cut off from the world.
Dr Leonid Petrov, expert in Asian and African studies from the Australian National University, said: “South Korea might use the opportunity to exploit North Koreans who have less education or experience in enterprise.
“Millions of North Korean workers could become second class citizens, there could be widespread discrimination, even the border might be kept for years to stop mass immigration.
“It will take at least a decade before the level of prosperity will be equalised between North and South.
