Kim Jong-un is the third supreme leader in the Kim dynasty, founded by his grandfather Kim il-Sung, the country’s leased ar the time of its establishment.

Kim Jong-un took over from his fater Kim Jong-il when he died from a heart attack in December 2011.

Under Kim Jong-un, North Korea has continues its policy of promoting the military at home while sending mixed signals to the rest of the world about its nuclear program

Supreme leader: Kim Jong-un
North Korea may have spent between US$2.8-$3.2 billion on its nuclear development program including expenses for transport and logistics.

The money would have been enough to buy 9.33-10.66 million tons of grain.

POVERTY
According to 2010 Global Hunger index, North Korea scored 19.4. Also North Korea was the only country outside Africa to show an increase in hunger levels, which has been blamed on negative trends in economic growth and food production.
Under the rule of Kim Jong-Un, North Korea remains among the most harshly repressive countries in the world. All basic freedom has been severely restricted under the Kim family’s political dynasty. A 2014 UN commission of Inquiry found that abuses in North Korea were without parallel in the contemporary world. They include extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape , forced abortions, and other sexual violence.

North Korea operates a series of secretive prison camps where perceived opponents of the government are sent to face torture and abuse, starvation rations, and forced labor. Fear of collective punishment is used to silence dissent. There is no independent media, functioning civil society, or religious freedom.

Even Pizza Hut, McDonalds and all other global fast food chains have some small delivery motorcycles. Also, there is a ' Quick Service' system that if you call them and tell them what you need, then they run errands for you
3. Korean etiquette
* Different ways to respect depending on the situation and
whom your facing. (position, age, teacher, job)
* Mostly, Koreans prioritize seniority the most.
(Elder people are to be respected.)
*Use both verbal and non-verbal communication to show
respect.


Verbal communication:
Koreans put the adverb (yo) at the end of the sentences.

Non-verbal communication:
1) You would bow to...
a person older than you or a person that you do not know well
2) When you are handing something in, or receiving something,
use BOTH hands.
3)When drinking, you turn head and take a discreet sip,
not facing the older person.

* Uniforms are REQUIRED! (Middle schools & High schools)

* Strict school rules on how long or what color your hair can be, and no jewelry or makeup allowed

* The only thing that they can decorate is face. That’s why many Korean student had plastic surgery or makeup hardly as an adult.

4:30pm - 10:00pm = Free Self Study in School (mandatory for almost every schools)


10:30pm - 02:00am = Private Academy(Hakwon)


* Hakwons are private entities, which help reinforce higher education and English skills, so there is often a high demand for them.
WHY ARE THEY STUDYING SO HARD?
Korean students are taking College Scholastic Ability Test( Soo Neung) , ONLY once a year. This is type of standard test accepted by South Korean universities. The test is offered every November, and this will determine which universities the student can enter.

Students face enormous
pressure to do well
on the test and get
into top universities
which makes student
suicide rates remain
high.
On the test day, the stock markets open late and buses and subways are increased to avoid traffic jams that could prevent students from getting to testing sites. In some cases, students are also escorted by police officers. During the test, younger students and the members of the student’s families gather outside testing sites to cheer on the students.
