According to just released documents on the Department of Justice website, BGR Public Relations has been hired by the Government of South Korea.

The firm will provide Public Relations services at the fee of $26,000 per month according to documents filed by United States law under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).
The documents state that the agency “fully recognizes that the subject matter regarding the scope of services require the highest degree of confidentiality.”

As the Wall Street Journal reported earlier today:

“The South Korean government has engaged a U.S. public relations firm to promote its position on Japan’s war history ahead of a speech by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to Congress.”

“The move suggests Seoul is concerned that Mr. Abe won’t clearly acknowledge or apologize for Japan’s aggression during World War II. Differing interpretations of history hamper closer Seoul-Tokyo ties, frustrating the U.S. as it seeks coordination to deal with China’s assertiveness and North Korea’s belligerence.”

While The Wall Street Journal did not reveal the firm, we did.
