Quick Glance: North Korea Sends More Trash Balloons Amid Kim's Sister's Warning of 'New Counteraction'
  • After Kim Jong Un’s sister warned of further responses to the South’s “psychological warfare,” North Korea sent a new wave of trash-laden balloons toward its southern neighbor.

  • Last week, the South Korean government suspended a 2018 deal to reduce military tensions with the North, allowing for the resumption of propaganda broadcasts and potential military exercises along the border.

  • In recent weeks, North Korea has floated over a thousand trash-filled balloons across the heavily fortified border as a purported response to the long-standing practice of South Korean activist groups sending anti-North Korea leaflets via balloons.

  • Earlier this year, a South Korean research group released rare footage depicting North Korean teenagers undergoing hard labor as a consequence of watching and distributing K-dramas.
