THE (KOREAN) WALL OF SOUND

South Korea Punishes Kim Jong Un with K-Pop for Nuclear Test,” says it all. K-Pop isn’t the Grateful Dead, but then, the exercise is meant to challenge the North Korean government’s near-absolute control over the information that goes into the country.

The broadcasts range from “K-Pop and recordings of casual conversations to discussions about the importance of human rights and the lives of South Korea’s middle class.”

No word whether there will also be a corresponding internet radio station.
