North Korea, the country that cut off outside media, and is sticking to propagandizing the regime…
It’s believed that North Korea is sending electronic jamming signals 18 hours a day to block foreign broadcasts.
It is ridiculous that North Korea, a country suffering from chronic power shortages is sending 18 hours of electronic jamming signals…
It is just simple insanity and absurdity.
The reason behind blocking off foreign broadcasts…
It’s probably because they are afraid that the dictatorship will crumble.
Don’t waste the electricity at useless places, and use it for the good of the North Korean people. That’s what a true leader should do.
Kim Jong Un is a leader that does not care about public sentiment, but only himself. It’s just really terribly sad.
In reaction to Japanese government’s systematic forced removal of memorial stones, the Federation of Korean Associations in US are pushing for the construction of memorial stones for comfort women all over the US, claiming that the world needs to know the Japan’s audacity to ignore their imperialistic brutality, massacre, and past invasions.
The Korean American Voters’ Council (KAVC), loacated at Palisades Park placed the comfort women memorial stone to prevent repeating Japan’s future atrocities, and brutality, and to commemorate the comfort women that were brutalized by Japanese imperialism.
Before removing comfort women memorials, the Japanese government should first reflect on their mistakes and apologize.

At the Korea, Japan, China trilateral summit, Chinese premier, Wen Jiabao once again urged North Korea to stop nuclear tests and development of missiles, and stabilize the livelihoods of the public.
The Chinese government stated their unsupporting stance against the on-going recent provocations from North Korea, and urged North Korea to refrain from nuclear tests, and focus on the economic livelihoods of the public.
As the leaders of the three countries confirmed at the trilateral summit, North Korea should set their priorities straight by stabilizing the livelihoods of the public instead of making rash decisions like nuke tests and missile launches.
Myanmar Rangoon bombing was an assassination attempt against Chun Doo-hwan, the then-President of South Korea, allegedly orchestrated by North Korea. During the visit, president Chun planned to lay a wreath at the Martyrs’ Mausoleum to commemorate Aung San, who found the independent Myanmar and was assassinated in 1947. The assassination attempt resulted in 21 people dead and 46 people wounded.
After the bombing, Myanmar suspended diplomatic relations with North Korea, and heavily regulated foreign visits.
29 years after the incident, president Lee Myung-bak visited Aung San Mausoleum to commemorate the deceased hero of Myanmar.
From this visit we hope for Myanmar to cut ties with North Korea, democratize the country, and work hard for economic development.
President Lee Myung-Bak visited Myanmar after Korea, Japan, China trilateral summit.
Lee’s visit is a a historic one, becoming the first Korean leader to travel to Myanmar since a visiting South Korean president survived an assassination attempt nearly three decades ago. Lee became the first Korea president to return to the country since the 1983 Rangoon bombing.
Myanmar has closed all ties with North Korea after the Rangoon incident, but started making efforts to restore foreign relations with North Korea. However, from this visit, we believe that South Korea will offer alternatives and pass on development know-how to Myanmar, who is in need for a partner on development, economic growth and democratiziation as well as encourage them to stop military cooperation with North Korea.
It is good to see that president Lee is putting a lot of effort to bring peace and stability the Korean peninsula, and for a world-wide economic development.
Apparently, world famous well-being fermented food, Kimchi is once again gaining attention at Beijing.
Last week, Kimchi festival ended in success at the International School of Beijing’s spring fair, where foreigners along with many Chinese participated.
The people and students who participated in the festival were captivated by the profound and mysterious spicy and fresh taste of Kimchi.
We once again hope for Kimchi to become a world-wide well-being food.
After Kim Jong-Un took hold of the North Korean regime, the number plate with 727 on cars is becoming increasingly common in Pyeongyang.
In the past, the number 216 was popular. 216 is Kim Jong-Il’s birthday. Now, the number 216 is gone and 727 is the fad.
727 is the day of the Armistice Agreement of the Korean War!
This change is believed to emphasize to China the legitimacy of Kim Jong-Un’s regime in North Korea by reminding the Chinese of their participation in the Korean War.
If North Korea wants to make closer ties with China, North Korea must stop provocations, missile and nuclear tests. It is just immature and foolish that North Korea is going to hard way, while they have the choice of the easier and rational way.
Four South Korean activists have been detained in China since March on suspicion of spying after they interviewed North Korean refugees living in hiding. South Korea’s foreign ministry confired the four were arrested in Dalian on charges of ‘endangering state security.’
The four activists merely supported the devastated North Korean refugees with food and shelter. However, China charged the activists with ‘endangering state security,’ and treated them as criminals.
It’s ironic that China is siding with North Korea that is driving its people to the extent of leaving them with no option, but to run away, while applying the charge of ‘endangering state security’ to those who are providing food and shelter to the poor souls.
This is the basic reason why China may become a superpower, but not an advanced country.
In a rare incident where North Korea commented on the fate of missing South Koreans, the North stated that the daughter of Tonyeong, Shin Suk-Ja, who gained media attention due to the signature-seeking campaign efforts, has died of hepatitis. There are six more families have submitted petitions to the UN for an inquiry of the abducted South Koreans.
However, unlike Shin Suk-Ja, the other abductees are not gaining the social interest, and are being forgotten, and ignored. The families of the abductees spend everyday in anxiety without knowing the fate of their loved ones.
In fact, regardless of the social interest, the problem of North Korean abductees is a painful incident for the families.
We urge the international society to no longer connive inhumanity of North Korea, and step up to relieve the pain of the abductee families.
