What comes to mind when you hear “North Korea?”

Nuclear weapons, starvation, Kim Jung Un?

Lee Gayeon’s hope is to show you a different side of North Korea through this photo, to show you that the North Korea shown in the media is not all there is to North Korea.

When Lee Gayeon recalls her childhood, she remembers happy and fun times. This is all thanks to cartoons, as shown in the picture. Just as we have moments in our own lives to laugh, to smile, and to love, people of North Korea also have moments like these. North Koreans too share in the common human experience.
