The NK News Seoul team discuss Kim's speech, a NYE party in Pyongyang, and what to expect in 2019
January 2nd, 2019

Kim Jong Un’s New Year’s address this week was hotly-anticipated, with DPRK watchers across the world keeping a close eye on a speech expected to define North Korean policy for 2019.

Just a day after the speech, NK News journalists Oliver Hotham, Dagyum Ji, and Colin Zwirko sat down in Seoul to parse the address and what it means going forward.

Also under discussion? A bombastic New Year’s Eve party in Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung Square, prospects for a second U.S.-DPRK summit, and what Kim Jong Un’s speech means for inter-Korean relations and nuclear diplomacy in 2019.

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 interview with leading experts and analysts in the field and insight from our very own journalists.
