The Choson Sinbo (Chosun Shinbo), also known by the name of its English edition The People's Korea, is a newspaper based in Japan, published in both Korean and Japanese. The name literally means 'Chosun (Korea) Newspaper'. It is published by the General Association of Korean Residents, a pro-North Korea representative body for Zainichi Koreans, who also run The People's Korea (PK), an English language news site. Although it has an anti-Japan position, it published an article that showed sympathy towards both the Korean residents and the Japanese citizens who were affected from the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami.
