KEI's NK Couple Picture Gets Top Billing

Published September 18, 2011
Category: North Korea

The September 15 KEI-Woodrow Wilson Center program on my trip to North Korea with Charles Armstrong (Columbia University) and James Person (Wilson Center) received much Korean media attention.  The program showed over a hundred photos from the group’s 4000-5000 pictures taken of daily life in Pyongyang and other citiesin North Korea. Below are links to some of the coverage. According to one of the sites, the stylish North Korean couple holding hands photo which was circulated by Yonhap News made it to the top ten news item for the day.  Reading some of the netizens’ comments, some believe the picture was staged.  I assure you it was not!
