These pictures of “Kotchebi”, the homeless, were taken by an ASIAPRESS reporting partner after Kim Jong-un took over the regime.

The Kim Jong-un regime has implemented a type of “hiding policy”–the regime thoroughly detains both children and adult kotchebi to make it seem as if there is no homeless problem.  Despite the efforts of the regime the number of kotchebi has shown no decrease, since the “incessant emergence” of kotchebi cannot be stymied because chronic poverty continues.
