NK News Mission Statement

The purpose of NK News is threefold:


This site is in no way associated with or endorses the views of the Korean Central News Agency, Korea News Service, or the government of the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea.

"Satire is a weapon you use against the powerful. You don't use satire against the weak."
- Molly Ivins
Also, this site aims its satirical lens solely at the regime of Kim Jong Il, and certainly not at the long-suffering people of North Korea, Korean culture, or Korea in general, North or South. Within the DPRK, even the regime regards only a third of its population as “core” (loyal), with the rest categorized as “wavering” or “hostile”. From just about any outsider’s account, parts of the country there are hell on earth. For those interested in further information, NK News contains links to sites documenting the regime’s crimes, as well as various charities through which to provide help.

The author sincerely hopes that the Korean peninsula will one day be unified as a democracy in the most peaceful and least traumatic way possible, that the regime’s crimes will be fully exposed to the world, and that its people will know a better day.
