Reality of The North Korean Education System | ASIAN BOSS


hi guys, it’s Steve from Asian Boss Have stories like the hunger games or 1994 ever made you wonder what would school be like if you lived under the close eye of a repressive government? Well, we are able to interview group of North korean defectors and get them to share as much information about the north korean education system as possible let’s get started Thank you for coming here! I’m thankful For outsiders, they have a lot of things that they are curious about on North Korea But, even they don’t ask much about the North Korean education system So I’d basically like to talk to you on your thoughts about the education system So in North Korea how are the levels of education structured? In North Korea, there is 11 years of mandatory education. I came to Korea in 2008, even then they had the mandatory 11 years of education so there’s elementary school, 4 years middle school and high school combined is 6 years That’s 10 years, right? -Right, that’s 10 we hope that the interview has been informative for everyone watching if you’d like to learn more about different experiences and perspectives from asia, including North Korea Then make sure to subscribe to the asian boss youtube channel and follow us on social medias as well. I’m steve from asian boss, see you next time

  1. Hi it's Ttohyang! It was a pleasure to be able to talk on Asian Boss about the North Korean education system. I am also grateful to all of the viewers that are interested in North Korea related issues. I will upload videos on my channel about a variety of issues related to North Korea to keep the conversation going ๐Ÿ™‚ Please keep tuned~ Thank you!

  2. What age do they start education? Did I understand correctly that they start kindergarten at 7? That seems quite late; we send children to school at 4 in Britain.

  3. One thing I noticed with all of these North Korean videos is they always say that North Koreans are in general happier and less stressed even though they live in much worse conditions. Thereโ€™s something to be learned from that.

  4. since i speak neither Korean nor read french and could not see the English sub-titles a lot of this was frustrating and i skipped it.

  5. Asian boss reminds us of the gossips and stories we would hear when people from different places met, its informational !!

  6. That was very interesting thank you. As a English person it was a pity the French subtitles hid the secnod line of the English ones although that force me use my school French.

    I don't expect the N Korean children were happier than those in SK when they were in the time of famine of course although S Korean parents might want to go a bit easier on their children.

  7. Thank you Asian Boss! One thing I like the most about this interview is that one of the interviewers said she was from the rural areas of North Korea. This made me realise how different life can be for people living in various places in a country like North Korea. From this I would like to share more of my ideas on the interviews from Asian Boss in general. I like the videos from Asian Boss a lot, but it seems that the most interviews happened in big cities. As a Chinese who's from a small city and have been frequently visiting Beijing and been living in Hong Kong and now Munich, I can tell how much difference it is to live in cities with different scale at least for my own country (and on the contrary in Bavaria, Germany for example, the difference between cities and rural areas is not that significant. I guess this difference is generally less observable in Europe than in Asia), and this affects people's opinions a lot. That's why sometimes I found the answers by people from Shanghai or Beijing not that representative. I'm not sure if this is also the case for friends from Japan, Korea or the Philippines. Nevertheless I understand it would be extremely difficult to travel to much smaller cities and interview people, and it's already been a good job by Asian Boss. My point was that for anyone especially those not from Asia who watches these interviews, please bear in mind that they reflect opinions of SOME people, but not those in the countries IN GENERAL.

  8. In the Vietnamese subtitle, North Korea is Triแปu Tiรชn, not Bแบฏc Hร n. Its totally wrong, please fix it

  9. What a crude reality!! I pray for this people as for every immigrant and refugee. They has no voice no earnings no interest… so sad what itโ€™s comercial itโ€™s fiction. Thanks AB โฃ๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ด

  10. 2:47 When he asked if she found somethings pretty ridiculous now about things they used to study… He should've kept a more sympathetic and compassionate attitude.
    Especially that grin/smirk at 3:03–3:04…
    No need to show her how ridiculous it was.
    She already knows.
    No need to make fun about it or laugh on it and make her, on the other hand, feel bad about the fact that used to believe in these things.
    He should've been more careful on hiding his condescending attitude.

  11. For some reason, I was incredibly uncomfortable when she was describing the poor quality paper haha. Anyone else?

  12. LOL at the "raising hand" and "answering question" thing. Vietnam's education was exactly the same in the 90s. I don't know how much has changed.

  13. wow. great perspective. yeah, probably south korean students are the most stressed in the world!

  14. They encourage that sum of life thing cz they don't want people to unite n overthrow the government

  15. In India it's 17 to 18 years of education that I think everybody takes. 11 years is nothing. But their subjects are useless waste of their life & time

  16. I have never heard anything from North Korean about themselves. And I wonder if there education system is so bad how are they making nuclear weapons and missiles.

  17. I am from india..i wonder will north korean people get freedom someday and understand what are their rights

  18. Wow. That's one very good looking Korean girl! She's very attractive! I'd marry her and bring her to America any day! Lol.

  19. The Norcorean government has their people kidnapped and very poor and then they want them to love their stupid president.

  20. Thanks for sharing your stories. The things that stood out for me was: the low amount of people who go into uni – shocking I thought there'd be more. Also the fact that the army seems to be the main employer for adults aged under 30.

    Very surprised that the state chooses what jobs u go to.

    So glad to be living in the UK. It has its faults but I'm free.

  21. Maths questions in rest of the world:
    If John bought 3 apple and ate one. How many apples does John have with him?

    North Korean: If there are 5 American bastards, and you killed 3 of them, how may bastards are left to be killed..?

    ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚OMG

  22. Dudes, what's the point? I'd rather stay illiterate than educated & face being shot later by US marines. They'd wipe their asses with my certificate of bachelor of honours man, who'd want that ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  23. asian boss. please ask korean defector if there are gay and other transgender in north korea? and how they were treated and live?

  24. for me, basically its better to live in NK rather than SK, in NK u know which person u worship (avoid problem) rather than dark government of "republic"

  25. Please don't give subtitles
    Just dub there voice in english.
    It's very frustrating to read the subtitles

  26. 13:06 im not defending North Korea's govt at all but tbh the idea of the govt just assigning you a job is kinda nice. you dont have to go through unemployment and endless job interviews and such =_=

  27. Shooting gun's and being indoctrinated by a young age at school and propaganda everywhere,….for a second there i thought they were American's.

  28. I would like to see a video about Otto Warmbier. What they NK think happened to him how they feel about his sentence. In the West, stealing a poster probably get you a fine.

  29. the good thing about being north korean girls are they faces looks so natural than south korean plastic bag face and breast.

  30. When she says that North Koreans are happier than south Korean students I understand what she is saying but its deeper than that. In N. Korea your life is already decided before you are born. As she mentions boys go to the army after middle school, females look for a husband to start a family. Compared to S.korea you have to work hard to get the life you want, which produces more stress as one mistake can be costly (not to mention the exams to get into college are one of the most challenging in the world) Its different worlds.

  31. What?! Boys spend their youth in the military and they dictate where individuals should work?! What is this?!

  32. ะกะกะกะ  ะฝะธะบะพะณะดะฐ ะฝะต ะฑั‹ะป ั‚ะฐะบะธะผ, ั‡ั‚ะพ ะฒั‹ ะฝะตัั‘ั‚ะต??

  33. It's funny how long it takes to make the folks hate Enemy, while it only spend 15 minutes to make other countries hate north korea governments

  34. I think the bullying is definitely a way to teach children to be on high alert, to always be watching comrades and criticizing any deflection from the imposed rule/way of living. It creates also a fear of receiving critique that then encourages compliance with the rule.

  35. I just took a Cold War authoritarian single party leaders class. This sounds like Mao and Stalinโ€™s regime so accurately…

  36. To be fair, any other countries might fare better than South Korea's educational system and how it stresses and pressurizes its youths. I just find it funny and interesting that a country, the likes of North Korea, would see its educational system better than that of South Korea in terms of how less stressed their students are.

  38. It doesn't really seem that different from most types of schools (especially in Asia), just with a little more of an emphasis on mythologized historical figures.

  40. "What's the point of educating girls? They just need to marry a guy." Wow, not only is their country outdated, but their thoughts are too.
