"All these (promoted) guys are top Kim Jong Un guys," said Michael Madden, author of the highly respected North Korea Leadership Watch blog . "All three of them have held very sensitive and high level positions under Kim Jong Un, they're very loyal (to him), and all have experience interacting with foreign delegations." The three men replaced, Pak , Ri and Kim , are 68, 81 and 77 years old respectively. US officials believe Kim Jong Un's decision to replace the three officials may have been driven by his concerns the three were in positions to corruptly take advantage of outside investment coming into North Korea. Two US officials who monitor North Korea developments closely tell CNN that Kim is concerned that he could risk his own ability to control and oversee outside involvement if North Korea opens to foreign investment. Kim, officials say, is determined to ensure any economic advantage comes to him and his immediate family and loyalists. Madden said the reshuffling at the top of the North Korean military was likely done for a number of reasons, among them preparation for the Kim-Trump talks and future South Korean negotiations and exchanges. But he also emphasized the economic aspects of Kim's move. In particular, the military's General Political Bureau (GPB) is responsible for auditing and overseeing the financial operations of the KPA, which controls a large number of trading corporations and other businesses which could be highly involved in any future inter-Korean trade or infrastructure projects. Political commissars under the bureau are stationed throughout the KPA and can influence the army's activity at all levels. "(Kim) is not going to want these military commissars helping themselves to any of this assistance coming to the North," Madden said.

Officials also have other tools at their disposal. "Authorities levy heavy fines whenever a traveler disappears in Japan," said a representative at a Shandong Province travel agency. "We require Japan-bound travelers to pay a security deposit of nearly 2.6 million yen ($23,080) per person." Such a hefty sum would of course cut the number of willing tourists. "The travel limit will not be lifted before the end of the year," predicted the same source, which would only worsen the impact. On the other hand, Shanghai and other major metropolises, from where most of the Chinese visitors to Japan hail, are not subject to travel caps. That is because it is tough to implement those rules in big cities, said an executive at a leading travel agency. The manager believes the number of Chinese tourists to Japan will not drop by much. Last year, that figure rose by 28% to 6.37 million. Things are decidedly less rosy for South Korea, which deployed the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense anti-missile battery, provoking the ire of Beijing. The number of Chinese traveling to South Korea is expected to sink by a large margin.
