Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: Do North Koreans like reading books?

"Among the books I read in North Korea, Sherlock Holmes was my favorite"

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

Today’s question is from Ian Hunter, who asks: I’ve seen photos of North Korean market stalls selling comics. Are they just for children or do adults buy them too? Do many people read them?
