North Korea’s U.N. Ambassador Pak Gil Yon speaks to reporters during a news conference at Avery Fisher Hall Tuesday in New York. Pak discussed plans for the New York Philharmonic to perform in Pyongyang in February 2008. You write the cutline.

Top Cutlines

1. North Korean defector Wok Mak Yuk thinks of the torture his loved ones face for his leaving, especially his mother in law, while the reflection of his dear leader comes to him in the mirror — In The Know.

2. A prickly Pak patiently peeks at a packed but partially-pickled press party, predictably but not practically picked to procede the Philharmonic’s peak performance — John Austin.

3. In exchange for performing in Pyongyang, Gil Yon offers a mini-Pak of musical goblets for each musician and support staff member — Lynn S.
