State media review: Long-lost North Korean media star reappears on Chinese site
An in-depth analysis of vlogger Un A, a landmark children’s congress and unconventional new year’s celebrations
This week, state media aired a new video featuring the vlogger Un A, who reappeared after a more than two-year absence due to what she said was a “personal situation.”
The multilingual host interviewed other women about their romantic lives and what they look for in a partner in the video posted on Chinese social media by an account linked to a state-run media company.
State media also featured coverage of the Korean Children’s Union Congress, as Pyongyang continues to push to instill ideological homogeneity among younger generations.
