But what would become of their families if they opted instead to defect to South Korea?

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_Korean_defectors

If the defectors are caught in China, they are repatriated back to North Korea to face harsh interrogations and years of punishment, or even death in political prison camps such as Yodok camp or reeducation camps such as Chungsan camp or Chongori camp.[5][6]

North Korean Soccer Team Detained And Scheduled For Execution After Loss To South Korea | National Report

m Jong-un has reportedly had the entire North Korean soccer team jailed and awaiting their public execution after enduring a humiliating 1-0 loss to their South Korean rivals.
After the game, North Korea’s athletes were escorted to a waiting bus where they were then transferred to a maximum security North Korean prison.

The Kim dynasty does not tolerate anything resembling submitting to the south.
Do you believe all of that, some of it, none of it?

Do you believe that North Korean troops threw babies to the floor so they could loot the incubators? Do you believe North Koreans throw dissidents feet first into plastic shredder machines? Do you believe young Kim's uncle was executed by being fed to a pack of starving dogs?

The real question is do you believe all of this, some of it or none at all?

Are you, in fact, Kim Jong Un?

Hey! You can lap it all up if it makes you feel better but don't deceive yourself into thinking you know what I believe.

I presume you don't believe it, else you wouldn't have bothered commenting.

Give us the benefit of your wisdom on all things NK, and let us have the REAL story.

Could it be,

impossible?
possible?

Impossible and that is the very essence of what I have been saying on this forum for years.

One of the problems of 'news' such as this is that there is unlikely to be a reliable announcement by the DPRK.

I believe in what other people that lived there wrote about when they were able to get the out from that lovely place.

But I presume that for somebody it will be evil propaganda from the evil Yanks.
Now since you know better, I'd like to ask you if you ever lived in the lovely DPRK and for how long.

Do you ever stop to think that these people might have had a little 'help' in writing their stories.

I have never been a resident of the DPRK but I did work there for a while, not long.

Now since you know better..
Well no I don't but I am sure you think you do.

Just long enough for the brainwashing to take effect?

I once worked in a rather unpleasant third world country for a short while and was (a) only familiar with that particular area being developed, and (b) relatively comfortable in the knowledge that I was free to leave whenever I chose. I certainly couldn't speak for the inhabitants outside that area.

Does anyone really think that the North Korean model of government is a successful one? Can anyone point to successes in any aspect of NK society? Are the people content and happy with their leadership and their lot in this life? What has NK contributed to humanity in general in the last 60 years?

There's nothing unique in that. You could ask exactly the same about many other countries, including at least one that is supposed to be a workers' paradise.

I could also say it is worse than many other countries. Just why are NKoreas people in a perpetual state of imminent mass starvation? S. Korea shares the same peninsula and there is little geological or climate differences either side of the 38th parallel - there is only a difference in government. Ergo the mutated government of the north is the sole cause for all the hardship and only have themselves to blame.
