Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: Can outside information bring change?

"After watching drama and movies, I knew I desperately wanted to live in the world I saw"

Every week we ask a North Korean your questions, giving you the chance to learn more about the country we know so little about.

This week’s question is: Many activists say that sending more outside information into North Korea could help open up the country, stimulating rebellion against the state, mass defections, or some other event that shifts the power away from the regime. Do you agree with this? Is information 'the answer?' Or do people already know a lot about the outside world?
