This act allowed users to browse through the internet and publish information on social networks. Also, it was a rare chance to get some information about life in the country and at the same time it was under the eye of the officials that are highly concerned about the security level of North Korea.

While most users can’t open the site, some report that the service can be accessed through the official application. But connection through Koryolink still remains closed and it’s not clear what has caused such a problem as both North Korea officials and Koryolink representatives stay silent about this situation.
