Jake Haras's insight:

Most of North Korea, is rural and poverty stricken, and even those that visit the capital Pyongyang have noted that while the streets are clean, the people are cheerful and well dressed, but everywhere the entire country is lacking in technology and in food. They funnel all the money into their own defense and elite class, causing underdeveloped slums all over the country, even in highly populated cities. Their social structure is dependent on ties to party leaders. Those without party ties have less access to education and careers, The power is a problem in cities and so is the food distribution. Also there is a big problem when it comes to crime which is stealing of food, not anything really serious just people trying to feed their families. Many Cities have black market trading and north Korean Officials say its illegal but people still trade just out of necessity to survive

North Korean Populace

Jake Haras's insight:

The Article talks about North Korea as a whole. They talk a lot about the class system and what life is like for the classes in North Korea. They
talk about how the North Korean Populace is starving while the government only cares about National Defense or Nuclear Weapons. North Korea as as whole, many people are seeking help and they want to leave the country.
Main people do not have food to feed their children so do they eat so that they can have energy to work and let their children starve or do they let their children eat so they can be healthy but not have enough energy and strength to go to work. Its sad that the government doesn't step in, if  North Korea wasn't getting Foreign Aid then it would surely run out of food  and many people would die of starvation or malnutrition. Also the whole country would collapse because North Korea doesn't have enough funds to survive without aid.

Jake Haras's insight:

The Film talks about how life in the camp was, The food shortages, the hard labor, the extreme conditions and the brutality of the guards. It goes in detail how families functioned inside the camp. Basically you had an Arranged marriage and you could have kids, but the mother and father could only see each other like 5 or 6 times a year. There was no mother son, father son, sibling love. Everyone was fighting for food and it was a competition. Your also taught to snitch on your family at all cost and if you don't and they try to plan an escape you would be killed. The people in the camp would eat the same meal everyday, cabbage with cornmeal.

Jake Haras's insight:

Pyongyang is the Capital, where all the elite class live, but even on the biggest city and "most advanced" in North Korea there is still issues. They have power for only half the day and many other cities don't have power at all. Most Koreans have less than 2 meals a day but are starvation.

Kim Jong Euh

Jake Haras's insight:

Kim Jong Euh is the Supreme Leader in North Korea, he was sent away to a School in Germany to get a good education. Hes in good shape and played on his prep schools basketball team. He seems to be transitioning into being a more social and more tolerable leader. Even letting such people as Bill Clinton and Dennis Rodman into the country. Kim Jung Un seems to be more of people leader than his father and his grandfather, but there's still a big disparity between the people and the government. Kim Jung Un also seems to be more into solving the problems of the starvation problem in his country, so hopefully with a new leader the country can find a new beginning, but still put the state and Military over everything. Funneling funds intoMilitary contracts and tech.
