Getting news about anything not military-related from North Korea is tough to say the least. There is so much we don’t know about this mysterious and insular country, but we have managed to dig up a few rather shocking secrets. We’ll tell you some of the dark facts about North Korea that they don’t want you to know. Kim Jong-un is a big deal, but for a long time he didn’t seem likely to succeed his father. And suspiciously enough, one of his siblings was mysteriously and recently taken out of the picture. You’ll learn what it’s like to be a woman in North Korea, and spoiler alert, it’s not great. Even the “fun” parts of North Korea are rather disturbing, like the zoo which features dogs as one exhibit, and only recently got their chimp off of a nasty cigarette habit.
