This is how leader Kim Jong-Un treats his North
Life in North Korea is no walk in the park, but it’s an even more difficult situation when you’re in the military. Serving in the military is something that the majority of North Korean citizens have to do when they reach adulthood—regardless of their gender or occupation. Spending a decade of your life doing something that you don’t want to do doesn’t sound good to begin with. North Koreans also have to deal with all of the terrible conditions that soldiers are forced to live through. They have to steal to avoid starvation, they’re forced to attack other countries, and they’re not able to say no. Life is certainly difficult if you’re in the North Korean army. The conditions are so terrible that some soldiers do their best to leave illegally, which can end horribly if they’re caught.
