South Korea: Korean studies congress

“There doesn't seem to be any DPRK involvement this time,” he writes, “which I must tell is fortunate, considering the experiences from the 2nd ‘world’ congress of Korean Studies which took place in Pyongyang in 2004,” in which South Korean scholars were refused entry.
