A much-anticipated meeting Wednesday between North and South Korea was canceled.

The attempt to improve ties between the countries was scrapped just 24 hours before the meeting was supposed to take place.

This spring, we heard a lot from North Korea as it threatened a nuclear attack on America.

We 'facetimed' with a Kentucky soldier who's stationed in South Korea.

Army Specialist Christopher Hawthorne said he hasn't noticed an increased threat level from the north.

"The mood over here? Everything's positive. We've continued our training as if nothing has really changed. We work hand to hand with our fellow soldiers. We have contingencies in place that were here before I got here," says Hawthorne.
