Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: What superstitions and urban myths exist in North Korea?

The state has failed to fully root out folk beliefs, which range from wedding rituals to tall tales about Kim Il Sung

“Ask a North Korean” is an NK News series featuring interviews with and columns by North Korean defectors, most of whom left the DPRK within the last few years.

Readers may submit their questions for defectors by emailing [email protected] and including their first name and city of residence.
