Week 3 Title: Former basketball star on return trip to North Korea Author: Reuters Source: Summary Flamboyant former U.S. basketball star Dennis Rodman will travel to Pyongyang in North Korea for a five-day visit, his second trip this year to the reclusive Asian country. Rodman last traveled to Pyongyang in March to meet with leader North Korea leader Kim Jong-un. Kim is a basketball fan and appeared to get along well with Rodman on the earlier visit, with the two of them pictured laughing, eating and drinking together and watching an all-star basketball game. Some had speculated that Rodman was returning to North Korea to help secure the release of Kenneth Bae, an American missionary who was recently sentenced to 15 years of hard labour for plotting to overthrow the state. However, Rodman said his trip was just \"another basketball diplomacy tour.\" My reaction/reflection: After I read the news, I think it is quite difficult to understand because there are many confused and difficult vocabularies ;for example, speculation, diplomacy ,and drill.
