An Unrivalled Resource
Through a unique network of in-country sources, leading experts, refugee voices and specialist journalists, NK News provides news, analysis and opinion that you simply won't find anywhere else – on a daily basis.
Our specialized focus helps us give you a perspective that is different to regular news wires or analytic sources where journalists and experts are often required to provide coverage on breaking events without specialist long-term knowledge of the country.
Funded principally through user subscriptions, NK News has no agenda to fulfil beyond being an honest broker of timely and reliable news and analysis for its readers.
With our unique suite of research tools and exclusive data sets that are updated on a monthly basis, your research on North Korea can take on both a contemporary and compelling quality that is unattainable with academic databases or open-source data.
Stay abreast of developments related to the DPRK on a timely basis with NK News briefings and alerts.
1. The Morning Briefing - Sent ever morning at 7AM ET, the briefing provides a comprehensive (100+ sources) overview of the day's North Korea focused news, analysis and opinion (sent daily)

After the execution of Jang Song Thaek, North Korea deleted the near entirity of its news archives – some 99% of it's 100,000 article archive. Those articles are now gone at the KCNA.kp website, but with KCNA Watch researchers can browse the archive with powerful search, data extraction and graphing technologies – in English, Korean and Chinese.
Track the appearances of every member of the North Korean leadership since 1994, detect changing leadership priorities, access individual biographies of nearly 300 elites, and map out visits using the NK Leadership Tracker. Updated monthly with primary data sourced directly from KCNA reporting, this is the most comprehensive database of its type in the world.
Track the movements of vessels flagged to the DPRK and foreign registered ships that regularly port in North Korean waters using this mapping tool, powered by the latest tracking technology, investigation and data from Marine Traffic.
