The North Korean economy is deteriorating following tightened sanctions and border shutdown. Pyongyang’s overseas trade has fallen to its lowest since 1955 with the list of export items reorganized. We take a look at the changes in North Korea’s trade mix-up.
Meanwhile, we meet with Ryu Hui-jin, who was on North Korea’s national synchronized swimming team and see how she has settled down in South Korea. Also, we take a look at North Korean students participating in the World Memory Championship while analyzing the regime’s education system for gifted students.
