Just a few quick points, I always love your analysts but you might have missed the meaning of a few points.

1:59 he is actually looking down at the border line as he was talking. But when he invited the SK president over to NK side (3:29), that was VERY significant as it was the first time a SK president set foot in North Korea since the war.

At the 5min mark when you discuss how odd it was that NK went through the line but than went back. It was strange because it was unscripted. NK Kim actually asked for an unscripted photo with both side. The SK president was telling his people and NK president was telling his. That photo where both sides are lined up was completely unscripted.

At the 8min mark where NK Kim is signing something. That is not anything to do the summit. That is actually the Guest log of the place they are at… can’t remember the name of the place. But yeah just a log book.. Kim wrote “New History starts from Now”

Love your site and your videos. Just wanted to point some this out as it can add significant context to why they might be acting one way or another.

My Favorite part of the ceremony was when they held hands and lifted them up together. Rocket man was so cute! He had the look of a happy child who just made a new friend and is proud of himself.

Made a screencap of the group photo. Its the only picture I know of with the troika/ Triumvirate in it. I hope you don’t mind.

In the Group shot you see Pak Pong-ju and Kim Yong Nam standing beside Kim Jong Un the other two members of the Triumvirate. So whoever was in control of Kim etc either had them in control too or The power has switched.

Everyone was familiar with each other and the paparazzi looked a little too cartoony & fake. Some people say North Korea doesnโ€™t actually exist.

I know it has nothing to do with body language, but what is with the Sousa-sounding march music in the background? You would think that they would be playing some type of indigenous Korean music on such a momentous occasion. It would be interesting to know a bit about the music choice. If that was the old Korean national anthem, it sounds awfully European.

How I wish someone would do an “NFL bad lip reading” for this!
Kim: “Mr President, hold up there. I thought I was going to get some pudding in this line-up. Where’s the pudding? I want to go back to get my pudding.”

I actually felt emotional. This has been needed for so many years. The “demilitarization of the demilitarized zone”, had been manned by USA since the 60’s. National Geographic has a good doc on this. I have witness history w peace from a divided country to a unified peninsula.

The NK Military men smiled the least.
Kims sister had a genuine smile several men away from her handshake. I thought it was a familiar smile and that she probably met with President Moon during the winter Olympics.

The SK posse also had genuine smiles.

I think this is something both sides have desired for a very long time and are happy to try to have this work.

So my overall take is that the least excited about all of this is the NK military… I can only think that years of negative brainwashing about Evil outsiders and this new direction might be confusing…. hence Kim bringing them into the circle?
Kim’s sister was the most excited. She will probably be the only one Kim 100% trusts and she will have a very important role in the new NK.
And she might be able to wear colours soon

I noticed as well, many smiles seemed really genuine…from my point of view, it seemed the only smiles that faded too rapidly (seemingly fake) were military smiles – maybe “we” really ARE evolving…lol

Fascinating analysis. Fact is, there’ll remain a North and South with a leader apiece. To truly reunify Korea, one needs to go.

It is moving in a way. This is ONE nation, devided by “ideals”. The northies are scared from their “leader”. What a difference. Well he breathes very heavy (while sighing) being over weigh, and, he has China backing this “whatever” is going to be.

I think Kim was stressed out bec of his accelerated breathing speed. I am not sure if this is relevant to him being over weight but he looks anxious to me. Is that correct?
