North Korean people

The North Korean people are oppressed. They are victims. They are held captive and they need to be freed. When will someone go in and help them? When will the rest of the world intervene and help these poor souls? Every day that we wait, more innocent people die. They starve. They don’t see a future.


Life in rural Korea

Life in rural Korea is still very primitive. People live with basic resources like running water and electricity. There are many parts of Korea that do not have access to modern technologies like the Internet. However, things are improving.

In rural areas, we call them “shigol.” 시골 This means countryside. Rice patties. Farm animals. Basic homes.

People don’t know what they are missing, do they? Then again, perhaps you envy the fact that these people live a very simple life. They are not bombarded with the hustle and bustle of a fast-paced society.
