I'm looking for some adventure.
So I got to thinking how I could go about meeting and marrying a North Korean lady. Not one that has defected into the South already (that would be too easy) but one that is still in North Korea.
I'm sure others have thought about this idea..but it takes someone like me to post this kind of sensitive topic.

Thanks

Funny enough until you mentioned that it hadn't crossed my mind! What are the odds?

You can meet ladies from North Korea if you are in China. I met a foreigner married to one... he met her in China while teaching there.

Highly doubtful you'll marry a North Korean lady still in North Korea. Not even non-ethnic Korean defectors to NK are allowed to marry a Korean.

I think there is only one case, but the guy was Vietnamese, and by the time they allowed it they were in their 40's/50's and she had to promise never to return to NK again.

Your best bet is China and find a desperate, homeless and starving North Korean girl there.

Now, now, our buddy Zack deserves better than that.

If that was all he wanted he could roam the streets of Detroit or Atlanta.

He already tried that. They rejected him.

I read a trip report from a guy who went to a brothel in North Korea. it was government owned and he seemed to have a fun time.

I'm not sure how you could even have the opportunity to talk to one. It's illegal for a North Korean to talk to a Westerner.

Zack, buddy, NK does not allow shirtless running!

That offense is punishable by death (firing squad) and any NK citizen who is seen with a shirtless running man and does not promptly reported can get jail time.

Guess you are out then. Laughing

Zackback..My fraternity brothers and I tried this back in 1984 at UGA. We wanted several midget NK ladies that would be willing to marry a bunch of drunk rednecks. We wrote numerous letters to the NK consulate but the arses never responded. We did get a response from the Mexican consulate but they refused to hook us up with midget wives. So we decided to just drink more beer and fight more often. I still wonder how my life would have been if I had married a NK communist midget or a Mexican midget. Cool
