“Any report on the North is either a scoop or a fiction.” This is the sub-headline of an article in Kwanhun Journal 2014-Spring Edition. The quarterly, published by the Kwanhun Club, a fraternity of senior journalists, devoted its latest issue to the problem of reporting on North Korea.

The reprieve afforded by Songkran came and went much too fast. Now we return to our evermore-acute anxiety over the country's political and economic state of affairs.
