SEOUL, Aug. 8 (Yonhap) -- Half of all South Koreans favor maintaining the inter-Korean factory park at Kaesong, even if it entails slight sacrifices, a local poll showed Thursday.

The polls conducted by Gallup Korea on behalf of the Institute for Peace and Unification Studies (IPUS) at Seoul National University said 50.4 percent of those surveyed wanted the Kaesong Industrial Complex to be kept in operation. This is a gain from 45.7 percent tallied last year.
