Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: What are funerals like in the DPRK?

Most funeral services take place in people’s homes and differ in other ways from ceremonies in the South

“Ask a North Korean” is an NK News series featuring interviews with and columns by North Korean defectors, most of who 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.
