    According to a 2012 study by the National Institute of the Korean Language, North Korean defectors understand only half of the language used in South Korea.

    To help them overcome these communication issues, Cheil Worldwide teamed up with local nonprofits to develop a smartphone app called Univoca -- a South Korean-North Korean dictionary.

    The app is expected to help bridge the communication gap between the two Koreas and make resettlement a little easier for defectors in the South.
