Unification Church (4 W. 43rd St., Manhattan)
Free, RSVP requested
There are increasing evidence of outside media trickling into the tightly locked country- South Korean dramas are a hit in the North Korean black markets. Will Korean popular culture (K-pop) be the new ping-pong diplomacy? Will the increase in informational flow have an impact in the general North Korean psyche- is a North Korean Arab Spring to be expected?
