    A journey across the globe to remember the Korean War – NKNews Podcast Ep.134

    This week marks 70 years since the start of the Korean War, a truly international conflict with dozens of countries involved.

    In an effort to honor and remember the sacrifices of those that fought on both sides of “The Forgotten War,” Hannah Y. Kim traveled across six continents to 26 countries that participated in the war. She then followed up on that journey in 2018, ultimately visiting all 50 U.S. states.

    Kim joins the NK News Podcast to talk about her journey and how she promotes awareness and appreciation for Korean War veterans through her work, which is featured on koreanwarmemorials.com and remember727.org. Kim’s website archives her many interviews with Korean War veterans, as well as photos and videos collected on her journey.

    Hannah Y. Kim is the founder of Remember 727, an organization dedicated to remembering the sacrifices of soldiers who fought in the Korean War and the armistice that was signed on July 27, 1953.

    Depictions of North Korea in South Korean pop culture – NKNews Podcast Ep.132

    Depictions of North Korea in South Korean pop culture – NKNews Podcast Ep.132

    Tropes and plot devices used in South Korean movies, television shows, and music depicting North Korea and interactions with North Koreans have changed over time, and often reflect attitudes and relations of a given era.

    Stephen Epstein, Director of Asian Languages and Cultures and Victoria University of Wellington, joins the NK News Podcast to talk about how inter-Korean politics and identity are reflected in popular culture, gender, and media representation of North Korean defectors, and how some of them are even becoming media stars in their own right.

    He also discusses collaborations with researchers like Christopher Green, and what the hit K-drama “Crash Landing on You” has to say about today’s North-South relations.

    Stephen Epstein’s paper, “The Axis of Vaudeville: Images of North Korea in South Korean Pop Culture,” can be found here.

    NOTE: the Korean word talbukja (탈북자) is often used in the show. It means North Korean defector.

A handful source

I was introduced to the world of podcasts by coincidence, while looking for different sources to learn about Korean history and linguistics. I came across this podcast and have stuck to it ever since. It’s my daily companion when biking to my office everyday. It’s a friendly, opinion wide, and politically neutral source for anybody interested in North Korea.
