North Korea plays hardball? – NKNews Podcast ep.19
The NK News team discusses U.S.-ROK war games, nuke dismantlement, and a new resort in Wonsan
May 18th, 2018

Month in Review

North Korea has begun to voice displeasure with what they perceive as South Korean enablement of bad behavior–in this case, war games with the U.S. and inviting high-profile defector Thae Yong-ho to speak at the National Assembly. The NK News team takes a look ahead and examines what appear to be new obstacles to peace.

Plus, a future North Korean Mar-a-Lago, a new book by Thae Yong-ho, potential inter-Korean economic cooperation, the controversial case of the Nimpo 12, and the long-awaited release of three American prisoners from the DPRK.

Note: this podcast was recorded before DPRK official Ri Son Gwon warned that no further inter-Korean meetings will take place until ongoing “issues” are resolved, and before President Trump sought to clarify the controversial Libya comparison.

This week’s panel includes: NK News Bossman Chad O’Carroll, Managing Editor Oliver Hotham, and Senior Correspondent Dagyum Ji.

About the podcast: The “North Korea News Podcast” is a weekly podcast hosted exclusively by NK News, covering all things DPRK: from news to extended interviews with leading experts and analysts in the field and insight from our very own journalists.
