NORTH KOREA 3 Linguistic differences between North and South Korean and the South Korean perspective on the North with polyglot Judy Um

Chasing Bandos Podcast introduces bonus mini-series on North Korea. On today's episode the interviewee is a linguist and polyglot Judy Um. Based in South Korea, Judy talks about the differences between both Koreas from the linguistic point of view. Since they used to be a one country, is there a lot of difference in the spoken language today? We talked about what North Koreans are facing when they successfully arrive in the South. Judy describes her take on the subject and gives her opinion on the attitude of South Koreans towards the North. You can contact Judy on her website or find her on Instagram at judylinguist

The North Korean songs played on the podcast are available on Songs from the DPRK YouTube channel.
