North Korea: Geopolitical Challenges for South Korea (Video)

Speaking from the Korea Investment Conference, North Korea expert Brian Myers explains how the popular fallacy of a communist North Korea impedes our understanding of North-South relations. The Kim Jong Un regime espouses a radical version of the ethno-nationalism that remains the civic religion in the South as well; as a result many South Koreans consider it the “purer” state, thus emboldening the North to behave more belligerently. Myers analyzes the unsettling implications for South Korea’s security as it heads into presidential elections.
