◆ Hunger of soldiers started from 80’s.

Lee Sang-bong, a defector from North Korea in Japan said: “Soldiers ate their fill until around 1975. Meal was composed of 800gram of half of rice and mixed grains with egg and even meat. Soldiers were of sturdier build than civilians. Without completion of military service, it was not possible to be a member of Worker’s Party, thus no opportunity to succeed in the society. The parents urged their sons to join the military. Deterioration of the military meals began at the early of 80’s. It was from around “the March of Hardship” in the 90’s when the death from starvation in the military began.” It is a generally agreed opinion of elderly people in North Korea.
