Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: how do people keep warm during harsh North Korean winters?

"From October to April, Hyesanites struggle for survival"

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and even good night to those of you night owls out there -- whatever the time is where you are, welcome to Ask a North Korean! The feature where you, NK News readers, can email in and ask your questions to North Korean writers In-hua Kim and Tae-il Shim.

Today's question comes from Jeran, from Salt Lake City, Utah, who asks about how those from Hyesan (like In-hua) prepare and live during winter.
