“Promoting Korean Reunification through Rock Music: DMZ//38, Korean American Rock Group The unique position of 1.5 and 2nd generation Korean-Americans is increasingly evident to the immigrant community. Listening to "No Man's Land" by the band DMZ//38, one can better understand this generation's place in America. As seen vividly from their choice of name, DMZ//38 hopes to spread the message of Korean re-unification to people throughout the world. The main theme of the "No Man's Land" album is the status of the Korean peninsula and re-unification. Several songs refer to Korean re-unification. In particular, the title track explores what the DMZ (De Militarized Zone) itself looks like today. Despite the political messages, DMZ//38 songs are quite enjoyable to listen to. Though touching on serious themes, the music invites repeated listening. This style of rock is easy on the ears, making "No Man's Land" a good choice for playing in your car. ”
