South Korea is pulling out all the stops for the upcoming inter-Korean summit this week where President Moon Jae-in will meet with Kim Jong Un for the first time — and the food they'll be eating will be fraught with symbolism.

That, alas, could not be said for Kim Dae-jung and George Bush in their approach to the North. There is of course, a risk in holding separate summits. What if the Kim-Moon summit goes well, the Kim-Trump summit badly? Then, wouldn't Kim have successfully rammed a wedge between the allies? Perhaps.
