North Korea Life




People
The Korean nation is a homogenous nation developed in the Korean Peninsula from the emergence of human beings. Koreans established states about 5,000 years ago and developed as a dignified nation.
Koreans are courteous, gentle, honest and strong-willed. They value honours with firm and lofty spirit.

Language
Koreans use the only spoken and written language. From the 15th century Koreans have used this language. At that time the Korean Script was set down by the name of Hunminjongum with 28 letters of 17 consonants and 11 vowels.
The present script has 40 letters with 19 consonants and 21 vowels. The Korean language is easy to learn. It has distinct modulation and beautiful sounds. It affords a wide choice of words and scope of elegant expressions.

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.
