One of my devs stumbled upon this tweet from the WSJ:

KCNA: "The reset Pyongyang time shall be applied from May 5, Juche 107 (2018)…the Cabinet and relevant organs of the DPRK shall take practical steps to implement the decree."


Seems like another quick change is coming.

Thanks for the heads-up. Could you please let us know exactly when DPRK will make the transition from +08:30 to +09? We'll need that information to update tzdb. Thank you.
