I was browsing the DPRK’s Voice of Korea yesterday while writing an upcoming more flippant post. The site contains information of a rock festival in Pyongyang next year organised by the VoK. The festival is billed as “Rock for Peace” – the 2007 version of Woodstock. The story is picked up in the Guardian and the First Post.
VoK is based in New Malden, and their head, Jean-Baptiste KIM, recently did a Q&A with Guardian readers. The VoK also announced yesterday the involvement of a Brit who will be going through the website ironing out the various linguistic infelicities which are inevitable when a site is written by someone who does not have English as a first language.
