The DPRK changed the standard time between Korea and Korea (source: ~) In the early morning of 5, DPRK changed its standard time, the standard time for East 9, the same time as South Korea, 30 minutes earlier than the previous Pyongyang time, an hour earlier than the Beijing time. CCTV reporter Zhao Miao: I am at the Pyongyang railway station now. The bell signifies that North Korea is now in May 5th. But just 5 minutes ago, the North Korean clocks were still at 11:30. Within 5 minutes, the DPRK completed the time change. According to previous reports by the KCNA, this time change came from the proposal of Kim Jeong-eun, the supreme leader of the DPRK. When Kim Jeong-eun met with the president of South Korea at the end of last month, Kim Jeong-eun said he was very sad when he saw the two clocks showing time and Seoul time in the meeting place. He thought that North and South should be a whole, that is, the process of the unification of the different things between the two sides. In August 15, 2015, the DPRK announced that in order to meet the emancipation of the motherland 70th anniversary and eliminate the influence of Japanese colonial rule, it changed the standard time of East 8.5, and named it Pyongyang time, and abandoned the time of East 9, which had been used. By this time change, Pyongyang time has been used for less than 3 years. CCTV reporter Zhao Miao: even with instructions from the supreme leader of the DPRK, the timing of the change is unprecedented. Compared with the adjustment in 2015, the reserve time was only half the previous one. Considering the impact of time adjustment on the social and economic activities such as transportation, international settlement and other activities in North Korea, the determination to implement the time change resolutely also reflects the determination of the Korean side to fulfil the consensus reached during the Korean summit meeting. South Korea welcomes DPRK to change the standard time On the news of the DPRKs change of time, South Korea said that although there may be a short period of chaos in the country, it is a good thing for both the Korean and the Koreans in the long run. Bai Taixuan, a spokesman for the Ministry of unification of Korea, said that the implementation of the time change at such a fast pace shows the positive will of North Koreas interaction and cooperation with the international community. North Korean people: will continue to carry out the will of the leaders Ordinary people in North Korea say that the change of time has no effect on their lives. They will unite with one mind and implement the will of the DPRK leaders. Female workers in the Liu Yuan shoe factory in North Korea: I heard that the time has changed since May 5th.
