I would think that the logic is pretty simple.

This is Korea we're talking about.

To paraphrase Tina, "What's logic got to do with it?" or principle for that matter?

Korea is going to approach the FTA purely as a horse-trading session - which is why the negotiations will - and should -- fail.

While a basis in fact is clearly not particularly important to boosters of the Kaesong project, a devil's advocate might mention that it has traditionally been the view of both Korean governments that their territory included the entire peninsula.

That is true. However, North Korea has 'effective control' of Gaeseong/Kaesong (I use the updated spelling).
