There is no feudalism in the DPRK !
The Western media and some politically illiterate people like to refer to the DPRK as "feudal " which is just incredible nonsense. Korean revolutionaries led by the great leader President KIM IL SUNG completely eliminated feudalism by carrying out the anti-imperialist , anti -imperialist democratic revolution including the Agrarian Reform which smashed landlordism in the countryside by confiscating without compensation land of more that 5 hectares . So where are the feudal landlords in the DPRK ? There aren't any ! Visiting rural areas of the DPRK in 2008, 2013 and 2015 I could see that the countryside of the DPRK is the most egalitarian in the world with no sign of big houses for feudal landlords. Of course south Korea is a different matter . In 1945 the US occupied south Korea and destroyed the revolution and blocked any progressive advance . So feudalism and landlordism remained intact in south Korea , indeed the US became of the biggest landlords in south Korea taking the place of the Japanese . So if there is such a thing as feudalism in Korea it is in south Korea.
