Ambassador Insights Suggests Seoul Slang Keeps Pyongyang Youth Chatting

Book Review: Only Beautiful, Please - By John Everard

There are few books written about what it’s like to live in North Korea, especially when considering that thousands of foreigners have experienced life in-country over the past several decades. Previous titles such as Michael Harrold’s “Comrades and Strangers” have given a fascinating insight into what daily life is like for the expat community in the DPRK, but there has been next to nothing written from this perspective in several years.  And even then, just a handful of accounts of life in the North exist from the perspective of those knowledgeable in foreign affairs, something which makes Everard’s  “Only Beautiful Please” a real commodity, offering an up to date snapshot of life on the ground in North Korea.
