Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: What is it like to be a musician in North Korea?

Artists have little say over what they perform, and they must make immense personal sacrifices to practice their craft

“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.
