These “coffee kiss” sculptures are part of an ongoing series by Chinese artist Johnson Tsang. Started in 2002, the series is named after a local drink called Yuanyang, which is made using a mixture of three parts coffee and seven parts Hong Kong-style milk tea to perfectly represent both Eastern and Western cultures.
OK SOME REALLY SERIOUS SHIT IS HAPPENING IN NORTH KOREA
According to South Korean newspapers, last week the North Korean government PUBLICLY EXECUTED 80 people in 7 cities for watching South Korean/Western shows, movies, and videos, “pornography,” or possessing a Bible.
Apparently people’s attitudes and conformance are changing SO THIS IS HOW THE GOVERNMENT IS TRYING TO SUPPRESS DISOBEDIENCE
They allegedly herded 10,000 innocent civilians into a stadium where they were FORCED TO WATCH THE EXECUTIONS BY MACHINE GUN FIRE
THIS IS HONESTLY SOME HUNGER GAMES SHIT HAPPENING IN REAL LIFE RIGHT NOW

As far as I can tell, there is limited coverage of it. Most papers are referencing this South Korean paper,the Korea JoongAng Daily. The Washington Times has an article on it. A side blog (The Best Defense) of Foreign Policy has a small opinion piece on it. Looks like Al Jazeera America has a piece too.
I’ve seen nothing on Reuters, NPR, BBC or the Guardian reporting on this. Not surprising, there’s not enough sources to give this enough credit yet.These articles were writing around the date of November 11th, 2013. A day or so after I saw more articles from NPR and Reuters.
If you are looking for something more concrete a simple web search of the terms “North Korea news with the name of a news outlet of your choice” will help you find the most up to date information.
