Photos and stories of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden dominate the headlines on the front pages of newspapers in Seoul, South Korea, on Nov. 9, 2020,
A New U.S. President Leaves South Korea Cautiously Optimistic
South Korea is seeking to quickly establish a dialogue with U.S. President-elect Joe Biden in an effort to strengthen its position in U.S. priorities and influence U.S. policies toward the Korean Peninsula. A day after personally congratulating Biden and U.S. Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Twitter, South Korean President Moon Jae-in stated Nov. 9 that he would establish joint communications with the incoming administration to avoid any “vacuum” in bilateral relations. Moon’s actions reflect both optimism and concern with the impact of a changing U.S. administration on Seoul’s own priorities.

North Korea and South Korea Inch Closer Toward Low-Level Military Confrontation
A mounting inter-Korean spat over propaganda balloons, amid domestic political developments deemed provocative in both countries, is raising the risk for low-level military confrontation while threatening South Korea’s efforts to begin its COVID-19 economic recovery. Over the past several days, despite the 20th anniversary of the first inter-Korean summit, North Korea has demolished the inter-Korean liaison office in Kaesong, threatened to scrap a 2018 bilateral military agreement aimed at easing inter-Korean tensions, stopped the daily calls between the two governments, and issued several warnings against South Korea's inaction to stop activists and defectors from sending propaganda-laden balloons into North Korea.

Pedestrians wearing face masks cross an intersection in Seoul, South Korea, on April 23, 2020. In the first quarter of 2020, South Korea's economy saw its worst performance in more than a decade as COVID-19 spread across the country.
With Its COVID-19 Outbreak Contained, South Korea Braces for the Global Fallout
As his country's COVID-19 outbreak wanes, South Korean President Moon Jae In is emerging from the battle stronger than ever, though the economic challenges ahead will impede his ability to translate that success into progress on his ambitious reform agenda. In early March, South Korea's epidemic was the worst outside of China, but it has since been far surpassed by COVID-19 outbreaks elsewhere. On April 30, new domestic spread in the country hit the milestone of dropping to zero after topping 10,000 cases overall. Despite its relatively quick recovery from the virus itself, however, South Korea's economic outlook will remain grim even after the rest of the world -- and in particular, its top trade partners in North America and Europe -- join it on the other side of COVID-19. In the meantime, the need to shore up growth amid a deepening global recession will delay Moon's promised progress on economic inequality

North Korea Has Ended Its Missile Testing Ban. Now What?
The United States and North Korea have been engaged in denuclearization talks since 2018 under the auspices of a unilateral North Korean suspension of nuclear and long-range missile tests. But Pyongyang's patience with Washington's hard-line negotiating position is growing thin, with North Korea now saying it will no longer keep to its self-imposed testing moratorium.

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un meet at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone separating South and North Korea on June 30, 2019.
U.S., North Korea: Trump and Kim Step Over the Border Line to Revive Nuclear Talks
Just over four months since the high-profile breakdown of their summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have met again. On June 30, in what Trump couched as a relatively impromptu event, they held a 50-minute meeting at the inter-Korean border's Panmunjom peace village. In a highly symbolic moment, the two leaders shook hands before Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to cross, however briefly, into North Korea. Kim also stepped over into South Korea. At a post-meeting news conference, Trump said that U.S. and North Korean representatives will hold working-level nuclear talks in the next two to three weeks. The president emphasized the goal of a comprehensive deal, downplaying (as before) speed. While Trump said sanctions on North Korea would remain, he suggested that talks could change this -- a hint of a potential departure from the White House's hard-line position.

North Korea: With a Return to Missile Testing, a Knock on the White House's Door
After a hiatus of 521 days, North Korea has resumed its missile-testing regime. On May 9, the country launched its second flight test in less than a week of what appear to be short-range missiles. Its May 4 launch involved multiple missiles, possibly including several of the same type. North Korean missile tests always carry a message. The message this time is that it should not be ignored and that the current state of affairs is unacceptable.
