North Korea is regarded as one of the most isolated regimes in the world. According to a recent report by TV Chosun, the culture of North Korea has been changing in the last few years.  Cultural influences form the South have been becoming popular with residents in the North.  TV Chosun’s report, states that Jun Ji Hyun's makeup is trending in North Korea along with many other South Korean trends.


The reporter points out that even Kim Jong Un's wife has been seen with nude lips along with other North Korean women, which is one of the looks Jun Ji Hyun's character in the hit drama 'You Who Came From the Stars' bore. An interview reveals that the Hallyu Wave is also coming to the capital Pyongyang, and when women see the dramas, they want to become prettier too. That means that South Korean makeup products, such as Amore Pacific, have been entering North Korea more often. The reporter reveals that if a product says 'Made In Korea', it's more likely able to cross the border.

Even the 'eating culture' is looking more like it does in Seoul. Cafes have been coming in, and the general public is said to like espressos. Footage of a North Korean broadcast shows a lady impressed with a restaurant pager.
