Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: What did state propaganda teach you about love?

While praising sacrificial love between comrades, schools discourage romance and treat it as taboo

“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.
