KCNA Watch is an aggregator of official DPRK media output, which updates in real time.
Due to regular server outages and multiple occasions malicious scripts have been found on official DPRK media sites, KCNA Watch mirrors all DPRK media for easy access and browsing.
Full copies of articles and PDFs are also hosted here due to the DPRK government’s regular deletion and editing of archived materials.
Furthermore, unlike many official DPRK media sites, KCNA Watch allows for articles to be shared in realtime via social media, with permalinks that can be cited in academic journals.
