Smartphone App About N.Korea

Posted on: english.chosun.com

Kim Min-jong, a 26-year-old student in the Department of North Korean Studies at Korea University, made the country’s first Smartphone app providing expert information on North Korea. Over 1,000 people have downloaded it in the week since its launch, and the app is in the region of 20th on Podgate, which ranks the top 300 most popular apps.

Kim planned and produced the app, and spent W5 million (US$1=W1,126) to make the project a reality through an app developer. It can be downloaded for free on Android.

The app contains demographic, political and administrative information about North Korea, comparisons of North and South Korean military power, a family tree of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il, the regime’s power structure, and latest news. One function gives users an idea of how much damage Seoul would sustain if a North Korean nuclear missile hit it. It shows estimated casualties when the missile hits specific part of the South Korean capital.
