Korea headlines from the New York Times

  • A conservative blogger in Texas has developed a following in Japan, after his online defense of whaling practices led him into a deeper embrace of contemporary Japanese nationalism. He has been involved in denial and minimalization of coerced sexual slavery of Korean women under Japanese rule, to general consternation in Korea. 
  • How China, North Korea's most significant trading partner, managed to get around luxury-goods sanctions to export supplies for ski resorts. (Complete with picture of Kim Jong-un on a ski lift.) 
  • Team Rocket? More suspicious North Korean ballistics.
