How North Korea’s propaganda leaflets are changing

Pro-Pyongyang fliers appearing in the ROK have undergone a dramatic change in tone

While leaflets likely sent by balloon from North Korea have been showing up in Seoul for decades, NK News has been covering their arrival more frequently than other media in South Korea over the past two years.

On the one hand this is because NK News staff and sources have been finding them around town with increasing frequency since late 2016, and on the other because South Korea’s National Security Law means local media seldom report on the details of leaflets found here.
