Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: What is it like to serve in North Korea’s army reserves?

All men must enlist in local forces in case of the outbreak of war, and training is often brutal and unpredictable

“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.
