So it shouldn’t surprise you that even North Koreans want to love and be loved.
But when you graduate from high school, there is less reason to be secretive.At this age, couples go on to spend a lot more time together without having to care about about what other people might think.Most men are unable to date for 10 years following graduation from high school because of this lengthy period of military service.During this period they hardly have any chance to meet women.When a guy would see a girl he liked, he’d ask her to dance with him.
And if all went well he wouldn’t forget to ask for her phone number or workplace.
In North Korea, social clubs were hosted for the masses, and for the young generation on holidays.
Big club meetings and dance parties took place at numerous places, including Kim Il Sung square.
While the North Korean government wanted people to see their lovers as “fellow revolutionary comrades,” the truth was that this feeling never truly existed for many of us.
We pretended to have that quality only because we were forced to.
Dates at theaters, parks and even on the benches at the square right in front of Kim Il Sung were all possible!
