Video – Reaching North Korea With The Gospel Through Radio Broadcasts And Movies

One important way we get the Gospel into North Korea is through our nightly radio broadcasts.  These are produced and voiced by North Korean defectors, and we estimate that nearly 2 million North Koreans tune into our broadcasts each night.  The broadcasts themselves are presently facing an unprecedented level of state blocking efforts. This is great news because governments do not waste precious resources blocking broadcasts to which no one is listening.

The radio broadcasts feature a variety of content, all completely focused on the gospel. We also do video recordings. The clip below shows how we recorded “He Lived Among Us,” an animated video made by Voice of the Martyrs.  One very unusual facet of the recording was the use of both North and South Korean actors to do the drama. Typically the only time North and South Korean actors work together is for performances that reinforce the two peoples as enemies. Through the joint production, we sought to emphasize how the gospel tears down the dividing wall between all people and creates level ground at the foot of the cross. The recording studio you see here is the same one that we use for our nightly radio broadcasts.  We also use the audio from this and other dramas in the radio broadcasts themselves, since North Koreans love dramas!

  1. I watched the video before I read this. I know that it has been great to have North Koreans do the radio broadcasts because it has a greater affect on the listeners than when South Koreans do the broadcasts. But I didn’t think about how having both North and South Koreans TOGETHER shows that these “enemies” can work side-by-side. That is great! I will keep the broadcasts in prayer. :>}
