Worst Things About North Korea

The Top Ten

1 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

Whoever thinks north Korea is better than south Korea, must be dreaming and should do research

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

2 Nobody is allowed to leave the country

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

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

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

Worst law ever.

3 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.

That is bad

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

That face though... - SamuiNeko

He's like Hitler part 2. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Bro he a salty cous

5 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

6 Very little food supply

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

Here, there are more guns than food.

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

7 Corruption
8 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!

9 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

10 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

I've heard somewhere that their internet is 'best net' instead, hah, 'best net' in your face - amenyoussef

11 You can't trust your own family members
12 Isolationism

This is a bad country to live in. If I had to choose between listening to 5 hours of Justin Beiber or moving to North Korea, I'd choose listening to 5 hours of JB. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

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

No interaction with the outside world.

13 Communism
14 Oppressive laws
15 Dictatorship
16 Sending young women to prostitution

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.

17 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

18 Hard for tourists to enter

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

It's hard to get here. And, who will wanna go here if it's still like this?

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