Every now and then we hear some ridiculous story on the news about life in North Korea, or about something that the North Korean government says. Most of the time, we just assume it's true, however in the past year it has become more and more obvious that news agencies aren't telling us the truth on a regular basis. This begs the question, what is life really like in North Korea?

Apparently, over the years, a number of people have managed to escape from North Korea bringing stories about mass starvation, public executions, soldiers shooting anyone who tries to leave the country, execution of familiy members of defectors, etc. Recently a YouTube channel known as Asian Boss interviewed some North Koreans who had managed to escape the country, and asked them various questions about what things were like there, what it was like to leave the country, and why they decided to leave. The video is supposed to be in two parts, however only one part is currently avaialble.

Note: The video is in Korean, with English subtitles. Some disturbing things are mentioned in this video, so keep that in mind before watching.
