North Korea can be considered as one of the most isolated nation in the world. People don’t know much about this country mostly because North Korean government has not allowed the country to get exposed to outer world by suppressing its own media and media from other countries to enter the country.
After World War 2, Japan left the Korean mainland and the country was split into 2 separate nations one which supported communism and other which supported democracy. South Korea was backed up by US and North Korea led by Kim Il-sung become a communist nation with the support.
Following the footstep of his father Kim Jong- Il also kept the county shielded from any exposure with the imperialistic ideology and the legacy is continued by his son Kim Jong-Un after his death in 2013. So little is known about North Korea that the country is almost alien to the rest of the world. Let’s have a peek into few interesting/idiotic things about North Korea which you might not be aware about & some amazing videos at the end, I reccomend do watch it all.
10: North Korea Is still At A State Of War With South Korea
After the world war the Korean Peninsula was divided into two occupied zones in 1945, with the northern part of the peninsula occupied by the Soviet Union and the southern portion by the United States
A United Nations-supervised election held in 1948 led to the creation of separate Korean governments for the two occupation zones: the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in the north, and the Republic of Korea in the south. The conflicting claims of sovereignty led to the Korean War in 1950. An armistice in 1953 committed both to a cease-fire, but the two countries remain officially at war because a formal peace treaty was never signed. Both states were accepted into the United Nations in 1991.
