Contemporary culture of North Korea is based on traditional Korean culture , but developed since the establishment of North Korea in 1948. During the Japanese rule (1910–45), the Japanese government attempted to force Koreans to adopt the Japanese language and culture . Many significant Korean artifacts were either stolen or burned by the Japanese. The desire of the North Korean regime to preserve its Korean culture, including many traditional aspects such as food, dress, art, architecture, and folkways, is motivated in part by the historical experience of Japan's cultural eradication attempt. Juche 's ideology asserts Korea 's cultural distinctiveness and creativity as well as the productive powers of the working masses. Art in North Korea is primarily didactic; cultural expression serves as an instrument for inculcating

Identification. Location and Geography. Demography. North Korea Japanese who are mainly wives of the Korean and repatriated with their husbands after the war. Linguistic Affiliation. Technically, North Korea uses the same Korean language as the one spoken in South Korea. The cultural and sociopolitical division of more than half a century, however, pushed the languages in the peninsula far apart, if not in syntax, at least in semantics. When North Korea faced the task of building a new national culture, it faced a serious problem of illiteracy. For example, over 90 percent of women in northern Korea in 1945 were illiterate; they in turn made up 65 percent of the total illiterate population. In order to overcome illiteracy, North Korea adopted the all-Korean script, eliminating the use of Chinese characters. Traditionally, the Korean language operated on a dual system: in premodern Korea, oral language was indigenous Korean, but the script was classical Chinese. The syntax of the Chinese and Korean languages are distinct and for those who did not have access to formal education, the world of writing was remote and unknowable. In 1444, under the initiative of King Sejong of Yi dynasty Korea, court scholars invented a Korean script named

The cultural fests of Northern Korea are both traditional (celebrated according to Lunar calendars) and regional. For the prolong engagement in war-fronts North Korea culture was shattered due to the loss of lives and barren-ness in cultural productivity and celebrations.
Culture and religions are well-coined terms. Long time back, before twenty six hundred years North Korea derived Buddhist religion from some part in India, and has switched into Buddhism. Till now the birth of Buddha and other Buddhist celebrations are celebrated by the people of North Korea with huge affections. During this time people here exchanges cultural beliefs among each other thus a unity is seen among diversity in the country between the non-Buddhist and followers of Buddhism.

CULTURE Language Korean is a Ural-Altaic language. It is related to Japanese and remotely related to Hungarian, Finnish, Estonian, and Mongolian. Although dialects exist, the Korean spoken throughout the peninsula is mutually comprehensible. In the DPRK, the Korea alphabet (hangul) is used exclusively, unlike in the Republic of Korea where a combination of hangul and Chinese characters is used as the written language. Religion Korea's traditional religions are Buddhism and Shamanism. Christian missionaries arrived as early as the 16th century but it was not until the 19th century that they founded schools, hospitals, and other modern institutions throughout Korea. Major centers of 19th century missionary activity included Seoul and Pyongyang, and there was a relatively large Christian population in the north before 1945. Although religious groups exist in North Korea, most available evidence suggests that the government severely restricts religious activity.

    Main article: Music of Korea Pansori Pungmul Apart from the instruments used, traditional Korean music is characterized by improvisation and the lack of breaks between movements. A pansori performance can last for over eight hours during which a single singer performs continuously. Rather than contrasting different speeds as it is common in Western music, most traditional Korean music begins with the slowest movement and then accelerates as the performance continues. Korean court music , called jeongak, is closely related to the literate upper-class, and has a strong intellectual emphasis. Jeongak is played at a very slow pace, with single beats taking as long as three seconds. The beat matches the speed of breathing rather than the heartbeat as in most Western music, and feels static and meditative.

Mother of All Mothers
The leadership secrets of Kim Jong Il By B. R. Myers You've just finished your life's work, a bold new history of the Watergate burglary in which you manage to prove that the White House was out of the loop, but the ink is hardly dry when an eighteen-minute tape surfaces in a Yorba Linda thrift shop, and soon the whole country is listening to Nixon gangsta-rap about how he personally jimmied the door open. It's every revisionist's nightmare, but Bruce Cumings, a history professor at the University of Chicago, has come closest to living it. In a book concluded in 1990 he argued that the Korean War started as "a local affair," and that the conventional notion of a Soviet-sponsored invasion of the South was just so much Cold War paranoia. In 1991 Russian authorities started declassifying the Soviet archives, which soon revealed that Kim Il Sung had sent dozens of telegrams begging Stalin for a green light to invade, and that the two met in Moscow repeatedly to plan the event. Initially hailed as "magisterial," The
