North Korea's state radio station on Friday carried out its broadcast of mysterious numbers for the first time since liberal politician Moon Jae-in won South Korea's presidential election earlier this week.
A female announcer at Radio Pyongyang read numbers for minutes at 1:15 a.m. (local time), calling out numbers, such as "No. 18 on Page 451."

   The announcer said she is "giving review work in foreign language lessons of the remote education university for No. 27 expedition agents."
Experts are divided over whether North Korea is sending instructions for espionage missions in its latest broadcasts. Some analysts said the move is a deceptive strategy aimed at sparking tension within South Korea.

   "It is hard to definitely say what pattern North Korea's number broadcasts has or what its intent is," said Lee Eugene, vice spokesperson at Seoul's unification ministry.

Does this have similar patterns with previous broadcasted numbers?

Probably a wait and see order, given the dove had just been elected that will not be hostile to the north.

Patterns, yes. But and the even more important question, why?

Interesting thinking. Broadcasts could increase.
This website has a recording of a broadcast you can listen to.
