How to read the North Korean media – NKNews Podcast Ep.68
NK Pro's Minyoung Rachel Lee discusses the subtle art of propaganda analysis
April 23rd, 2019

Month in Review

Interpreting what and how North Korea says about its nuclear weapons program, foreign policy, and the domestic economy is one of the hardest tasks for Pyongyang-watchers.

Minyoung Rachel Lee, recently hired as an analyst for NK News‘s sister site NK Pro, has been cutting through the noise for close to two decades and has it down to an exact science.

In this episode, Minyoung explains her five-step approach to reading North Korea’s foreign and domestic propaganda, discusses Kim Jong Un’s communication approach compared to his predecessors, and underlines why the Rodong Sinmun is the most important medium for understanding North Korea’s policy priorities.

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.
