The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), commonly referred to as North Korea, is widely known for its extreme poverty and oppressive regime. Yet, despite being one of the most impoverished countries on Earth, the DPRK has become a nuclear power. How did this happen?

As it turns out, North Korea has been pursuing a nuclear weapons program since at least the early 1990s. With support from the Soviet Union and China in terms of technology and materials, North Korea began their journey towards nuclear capability. By 2006, they had tested their first nuclear device and declared themselves a nuclear power shortly after.

What drives such an incredibly poor country to become a major player in global geopolitics? To answer this question, we need to look at the country’s history and politics: North Korean leaders have consistently used military threat as a way to achieve national security objectives, propagating fear in order to maintain domestic control. In other words, becoming a nuclear power was seen as necessary for maintaining political stability within the country.

Documentaries like “The Man Who Knew Too Much: Inside North Korea’s Nuclear Program” provide an invaluable insight into these events.
