Worst Things About North Korea

The Top Ten

1 Concentration camps

This should be higher, I mean the tortures are terrible:
Women are raped then forced to kill babies
The pigeon position
Kung fu is practiced against them
Once a girl was forced to eat soil for eating grass
Dogs eat dead bodies
Everyone has to do labor, if you help anybody they punish you
They keep three generations in there - ToptenPizza

Almost 30% of the entire country is in some sort of Concentration camp. Imagine the feeling you get, if a soldier comes to your door and says,"You are under arrest for being the eleventh cousin of someone who stole a piece of string."

I think theirs is worse than what the Nazis made.

Its just bad... AND AWESOME

How old are you 4?

2 No freedom of speech

This is one of North Korea's issues. It's probably fear kicking in. If North Korea allowed freedom of speech, they might learn a few more things and advance their country. I'm not saying they'd have to ditch Communism, but they could take suggestions from their people. - Turkeyasylum

You can't speak against their government. Or anything

I am Korean, and I am writing this comment in 2018 September 22th.
I personally think North Korea is trying to defend themselves by threatening other countries by their nuclear weapons. Which we call self-defense.

Probably some dictator can't be free because the country is evil and hates america - SpencerJC

3 Nobody is allowed to leave the country

Don't go travel to Pyongyang North Korea because u cannot leave and escape in North Korea if you are American or South Korean and Japanese! - SpencerJC

I can agree this is quite problematic. This might be because they're afraid of some of the disloyal citizens defecting. - Turkeyasylum

You can't go around the world if you come from this country.

Worst law ever.

4 Kim Jong-un Kim Jong-un Kim Jong-un is the Chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, commonly referred to as North Korea. He also don't play games

That face though... - SamuiNeko

He might have gout, diabetes, high blood pressure, a sexually transmitted disease and psychological issues

He is worse than hitler! Most evil man to have ever lived in human history

Someone needs to give him something to eat with Fugu hidden in it.

5 Very little food supply

Here, there are more guns than food.

After some research done for no reason on North Korea, I learned that most people have to give Kim Jong-Un all their food (don't know, probably as a tax or just for no reason) so they have to eat rats. - redhawk766

A famine struck there in the 1990's. If they had experienced farmers help the government farms, they'd do much better. - Turkeyasylum

6 Corruption
7 No freedom of religion

They don't respect the religious beliefs of the people

Since North Korea is a Communist country, it's natural for them to condemn religion. Don't take this to your surprise.

And many North Koreans are loyal to the government and love their country. - Turkeyasylum

If that real is very dictatorie country - belarbi

They force people to believe in Kiminism or Kimsanity or Kimslam. - PizzaGuy

8 Limited internet access

North Korea has cell phones, but the internet access is something they're still working on... Only time will tell. - Turkeyasylum

The internet over there is just a huge pile of propaganda, only the government and the spoiled dictator get the real internet. Only... what do they do with that? - redhawk766

No YouTube! I'd die! - ToptenPizza

they suck

9 Military spending

Very threatening. They try too hard to maintain their military even if they're short of funds.

I totally agree they overspend on military. It's the main reason why they aren't more westernized than they are. - Turkeyasylum

What do North Korea and The United States have in common? Well, a needlessly military budget of course!

10 Few places of entertainment

If their government builds more places to have fun and dine out, they'd gain more respect from the people. - Turkeyasylum

I don't think there's such thing as entertainment in North Korea

The Newcomers

? Innocent cartoons are banned
? The regime cares about nobody but themselves

The Contenders

11 You can't trust your own family members

I think that it is awful. I come from southkorea and I actually wanna go to Nortkorea to feel how it is to live there.

12 Isolationism

Most worst country to live in. I rather listen to Ariana Grande, south korean pop much better than going to Pyongyang North Korea. - waraypiso

Their only allies are Russia and China, and they're shaky with China... - Turkeyasylum

No interaction with the outside world.

13 Kim Jong Un wants to kill everyone

So meaan! - waraypiso

14 Hatred towards the USA and its allies

May Karma come upon you, Kim Jong Un!

15 Nuclear weapons

Yeah Nice!

I hate Nuclear weapons in North Korea! It's very bad and worst ever
Nuclear attacks country in USA, South Korea and Japan!
America will attack North Korea and remove nuclear weapons! - SpencerJC

16 Communism

Communism is the worst ideology ever I know. So much crap in North Korea - waraypiso

No longer a communist country. Anyway Anarchy and Capitalism is worse. - 50

17 Sending young women to prostitution

So dangerous! I rather listen to Taylor Swift or Britney Spears and going to Seoul mich better than Pyongyang and their leader in north korea - waraypiso

Kim Jong Um make military men take young
Women age 15-25 then decides which ones are pretty enough
To become sex slave and ugly ones: get killed.

Who the hell does that? Why would they make young women have sex against their will? That's like selling my fifteen year old butterfaced sister to get raped and die.

18 Dictatorship
19 Internet banned
20 Oppressive laws
21 Hard for tourists to enter

Who wants to visit, I don't believe in Hell, but North Korea is Hell.
Laws on haircuts.
By law everyone must vote and can only vote for one if you vote for another you have broken the law.
Have you seen images of houses they have photos of one of the Kim's in the house. I dunno if all the houses are like that.
Only in the capital Pyongyang people live a bit more normal and that's for the higher class, richer. Proper food, drive, use internet in Pyongyang.
For farms its mandatory to use human poo.
Tourists have tour guides and must adhere to every instruction.
The whole family are sent to death camps for breaking the law.

An author who visited North Korea for his book was arrested for leaving a bible in a club. He was in North Korea for 3 years and was recently released.

Who'd want to be a tourist there? We would never leave. - AnonymousChick

I'm not sure why tourists would want to go though. - IronSabbathPriest
