I’ve been watching a lot of videos by North Korean defectors and it’s heartbreaking how much they talk about starvation. Even the animals are tiny from malnutrition and as one defector put it “It’s a nation of starving people feeding on starving animals”
They don’t even have baby formula so if a woman dies in childbirth the father becomes a beggar who walks from door to door with the infant, asking women if they have enough breast milk to please feed their child.
I highly recommend you look North Korean defectors up on YouTube. It’s extremely eye opening.
