There are various views. someone see them as enemies, someone see them as compatriots. The older generation in Korea is mostly deal with North Korea's ruling elite and Troops as an Enemy or Evil, and ordinary people tend to think as compatriots.
according to survay in july 2018, 30~40, 40~50 years korean has positive image to nothkorea 19~29, 50~60, over 60 years korean has negative image to north korea (it's status when south-north have a submit. now, people tend to have a negative image than positive image)
Many variables cannot be ignored either. For example, hostile public opinion has been strong when North Korea conducted military conflict on border areas or nuclear tests. However, the time when a unified South-North team is formed in sports events, it becomes more moderate than that. Overall, when they are friendly, we can treat them with calm emotion, but when they showed hostility, we also become more hostile to treated them.
