About

This website takes its name from the phrase that went around Washington and Seoul when President Trump announced on March 8 that he would meet Kim Jong Un at a summit as soon as May 2018.

The site rounds up news coverage and commentary in the U.S. and elsewhere as the prospective summit nears and a chance emerges for big change on the Korean Peninsula.

It is edited by Evan Ramstad, an American journalist who lived and worked in Seoul for six years. Ramstad knows there’s a bit of ridiculousness to this site in that it is a kind of a meta-blog, one that says what he thinks is the most important of what other people think is the meaning of something they haven’t seen or, given North Korea’s secrecy, can’t really be sure about. Even so, some people may get something new from it.
