North Korea Creates It's Own Time Zone?

I was wondering when we would hear from Kimmy. He's been very quiet lately.


Seoul: North Korea, which was already out of sync with much of the world, has announced it will go a step further.

The isolated, authoritarian country said it would create its own time zone - "Pyongyang time" - and set its clocks 30 minutes behind those of South Korea and Japan.

The change is to go into effect on August 15, the 70th anniversary of Japan's defeat in World War II, which liberated a then-unified Korea from decades of Japanese colonial rule. Japan imposed the time zone that both Koreas currently use, and the statement from North Korea - whose anti-Japanese language often rivals its anti-US language in ferocity - said it was making the change to rid itself of a vestige of colonial domination.
