    Young North Koreans have been warned they must follow traditional lifestyles and adhere to the country's dialect. The secluded state's official newspaper made the demand in a column as Pyongyang tries to eradicate cultural influences from South Korea. Kim Jong Un's regime is particularly focused on the speaking habits of millennials, with some mimicking their neighbours by referring to their husbands as "oppa" - a term that means "older brother". The Rodong Sinmun newspaper said North Korea's standard language is superior and young people must use it correctly - all while ensuring their clothes, hairstyle, music preferences and dancing styles...

    The history of the son of former Chinese leader Mao Zedong is being rewritten under Xi Jinping, according to a recent press report. The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the Chinese Academy of History, first established under Xi in 2019, is challenging long-held beliefs about the circumstances surrounding the death of Mao Anying, who was killed during a United Nations airstrike during the 1950-53 Korean War. Conventional wisdom in China regarding Mao's death states that Mao was killed when he gave away his hideout by turning on a stove to cook egg fried rice. The Chinese Academy has suggested...

    Famed North Korean defector Yeonmi Park offered a chilling account of her time at Columbia University, saying that not even North Korea went to the level of brainwashing that she witnessed. Speaking with Fox News, Park became increasingly dismayed with the cost of an education that amounted to little more than what she described as indoctrination. “I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think,” she said. “I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was...

    Belgium is ending the posting of its ambassador to South Korea after his wife assaulted a woman in Seoul. CCTV footage of the incident shows Peter Lescouhier's wife, Xiang Xueqiu, slapping a shop assistant in April. Staff had wanted to check the clothes she was leaving in were her own, amid concern she might be shoplifting. Mrs Xiang later met the shop employee to apologise for her "unacceptable behaviour", the Belgian foreign ministry said. But Foreign Minister Sophie Wilmes decided to end Mr Lescouhier's posting this summer after three years in the role. While Mr Lescouhier had served his country...

    Didn’t they defeat the US when they helped get Biden installed in the White House? The Chi-coms issues their deadliest warning yet this week declaring they are now “ready to defeat” the United States. That’s what Joe Biden will get you. And unfortunately, the Democrat Party likely thinks this is good news. And just think, just a little over a year ago, President Trump had crashed their economy and had moved manufacturing back to the United States. Then came the China virus and the rest is history. reported: China has pledged to rapidly defeat the US in a military...
  • Young South Korean men turn against Moon ahead of 2022 election

    In April, South Korea held by-elections in the country's two largest cities, with the Democratic Party losing both in landslides. Poll data showed that young people, in particular young men, voted for the right-wing opposition in uncommonly large numbers. As left-leaning President Moon Jae-in enters his fifth and final year in office, he and his party are grappling with souring public sentiment related to the widespread perception that Moon has not delivered on promises to revive the flagging economy. At the same time, a number of high-ranking officials in his administration have had to step down after being implicated in...

    North Korea on Sunday warned the United States will face “a very grave situation” because President Joe Biden “made a big blunder” in his recent speech by calling the North a security threat and revealing his intent to maintain a hostile policy against it. Last week, Biden, in his first address to Congress, called North Korea and Iran’s nuclear programs “serious threats” to American and world security and said he’ll work with allies to address those problems through diplomacy and stern deterrence. “His statement clearly reflects his intent to keep enforcing the hostile policy toward the DPRK as it had...

    Beijing - North Korea on Saturday criticized the United States for abusing the country's "right to self-defense," days after President Joe Biden said Pyongyang's latest launch of ballistic missiles violated U.N. Security Council resolutions. "The new U.S. administration obviously took its first step wrong," Ri Pyong Chol, secretary of the Central Committee of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea, said in a statement carried in English by the state-run Korean Central News Agency. "We cannot but build invincible physical power for reliably defending the security of our state under the present situation in which South Korea and the U.S. constantly...
