Kim Dae-Jung was elected president of South Korea in 1998. He made a concerted effort to improve relations between the two Koreas, helping arrange reunions for families separated by the Korean War in 2000 and meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Il in 2007. Kim Dae-Jung won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in 2000.
