Kim Jong Un is upgrading North Korea’s pop culture

North Korean pop culture is reportedly getting a major upgrade under leader Kim Jong Un. The changes are being seen in aspects including television dramas, animation programs to the variety and packaging of consumer goods. Experts debate whether this is a defensive attempt to keep up with South Korea or an indication that Kim is willing to embrace aspects of Western consumer culture.
