N. Korea's Gentleman Scavengers Devouring Leftovers at Restaurants because...
In N. Korea's restaurant districts, well-dressed 'gentleman scavengers' are popping up. Rations are not enough to cover their (basic) need and they make up the shortfall at restaurants.
According to 'Open Radio for N. Korea,' a female Pyongyang resident in her 50's conveyed, "To make up their need, rising number of people are getting their meals from leftovers at Pyongyang's restaurants."
In Pyongyang, only those at a household whose head has a job, get food rations, but it is not enough for family members to last for a month. These 'gentleman scavengers' can be found in Pyongyang's outskirts as well as downtown districts such as Daedonggang and Daesung Districts. Not only men but also women and children go from one restaurant to another, restaurants located near Pyongyang railway station and a park, as well as big ones such as Ok-ryu-kwan and Chong-ryu-kwan.
It is difficult to tell them apart because they are impeccably dressed. They pay great attention to their speech and behaviors because restaurant managers won't let in those not well-dressed or whose speech or behaviors look clumsy.

Maybe the South Koreans can drop some stray dogs into NorK-land by parachute to stop this!
That’s not all NK is missing...
(safe for work, no need to worry)
Yum, leftovers in Pyongyang.
If it’s that rough for the privileged in town, you can multiply the suffering out in the countryside.
Maybe they can cook Lady GaGa’s meat dress.....
It’s like the immigration issue. Some people don’t want the issue resolved. In this case it’ the South.
It is very hard for us who never have faced starvation to know the depth of that problem in Chosen (North Korea). I have just finished a book titled THIS IS PARADISE, by Hyok Kang about his N.Korean childhood. Through out the book the lack of food, the starvation, and yes, the death by starvation are always in the forefront.
He and his family were lucky enough to escape through China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and finally into So. Korea.
Why would they do that? More importantly why do you feel it necessary to insult the South Koreans?
For goodness sake, Americans eat opossum and crap in boxes that is half chemicals.
The elite are mostly likely selling a good portion of the aid to fund their lifestyle.
The South wants reunification, just not on the terms available from those leading in NK.
“. . Americans eat opossum and crap in boxes . . . “
Uh. SOME Americans eat ‘possum (but they’re pretty nasty critters - the ‘possums, not the Americans) - and none of them that I know of crap in boxes; neither Americans nor ‘possums. :o)
lol ok its early, point is thats a tired old bit of ignorance that needs to go away.
heck our President has eaten more dog then the average Korean.
a way of life continuing in this hell on earth insane protege nation of CHINA, that all the worlds’ nations accept as a diplomatic equal
