A Conversation for North Korea

Factual Inaccuracies Galore

For anyone reading this with an aim to get a better understanding of N Korea, beware!
There are MANY quite substantial errors littered throughout this article.
For one thing, N Korea did not separate itself from S Korea!
After Japan lost the war, Korea was divided by treaty (as it was at the time under the brutal control of the Japanese as a colony). This has been a sorely contested factor throughout Korea's present-day history, and I would think that an article attempting to explain N Korea would at least offer accurate information.
For another thing, much IS known about the history of the Koreas before 1800. If you would only pick up one of many books on Korean history, I am sure you could find out about it. Sorry to sound ranting and angry, but this article is pretending to be what it's not.
