    Effects of a North Korean Victory on Asian Politics?

    It's been long established that a victorious North Korea in the Korean War (at least with a POD where either the USA doesn't intervene heavily early on or messes up in the war) would go on to unite the peninsula and yet have a different kind of regime that's less like OTL's hellhole yet still...
  3. Democratic North Korea and Totalitarian South Korea

    Say Park Chung-Hee is never assassinated and Kim Il-Sung is overthrown in a Chinese backed coup by generals who don't want North Korea to turn into a monarchy. If North Korea successfully reforms into Democratic Socialism (successfully as China will allow anyway) while South Korea turns to...

    WI: No North Korea?

    Instead of having a POD after 1945 or a South Korean victory in the Korean war, what if the Soviets never reached Korea in the first place? What if the Japanese forces in Manchuria had held out a little longer, and a little better, meaning that by the time of September 2, 1945, when the official...

    WI: Park-Chung-Hee assassinated in the Blue House raid?

    One of the most intense incidents between the two Koreas since the end of the Korean War, the Blue House raid was a failed plan to assassinate South Korean president and de-facto dictator Park Chung-Hee. Unit 124 was entrusted with the mission, and left their garrison at Yonsan on January 16...
  6. AHC: Higher population for DPRK?

    Like the title says, the challenge is to make a higher population for Democratic People's Republic of Korea or known simply as North Korea, a country with population of over 25 million. The POD is set after the Korean War. How would this impact on the Korean peninsula and perhaps the world as...

    Second Korean War in 1997

    I just recently watched the film Murder at 1600 on TV. Part of the side-plot involves a USAF E-3 plane being shotdow over North Korea and the airmen being held prisoner. The hawkish U.S. military generals want to wage war with North Korea unless they handover the prisoners peacefully. However...
  8. WI: Pueblo Incident Had Occurred in a World Without the Vietnam War

    If (disregarding butterflies and all that) the USS Pueblo incident occurred in a world where the US wasn't busy with Vietnam, would America have taken a harder line with North Korea (either in terms of measured reprisals, rescue efforts, or even a general escalation)?

  10. AHC: Make more "North Koreas", psychologically 20th century countries survive into the 21st century!

    I remember seeing a BBC report on North Korea a few years ago, about how "North Korea was so 20th century". Analyzing the daily life and infrastructure of North Korea as being a country where Agriculture and Industry make up the GDP of the country at about a 50%-50% ratio, most people are either...

    DBWI: Kim Il Sung never declares a monarchy

    As we all know, on January 5th, 1992, Kim Il Sung would declare himself God-King of North Korea(technically all Korea, but we all know the South never listened to him). This of course had some rather.... interesting effects as we know, Juche would be transformed into a full on religion...

    AHC: North Korea is Best Korea

    The challenge here is to make the Democratic People's Republic of Korea a generally more successful and prosperous nation then it's southern counterpart by the modern day. So what would it take to get a world where Best Korea isn't just a meme or delusion of tankies?

    AHC: Hot 1994 North Korean crisis

    In June 1994 the United States nearly went to war with North Korea to stop their nuclear weapons program, and the crisis was only averted due to the intercession of former President Carter. How could the war start and how would it unfold? Would a rump North Korea be likely post war?

    WI: North Korean civil war in the 90's?

    What sort of conditions could turn a civil war in North Korea, prior to the 2000's, into a distinct possibility? I've read a few years back that Kim Jong-Il was depressed at the death of his father and the pressure put on him to be an effective heir that he was considering suicide for some days...

  17. DBAHC: Keep Korea divided

    On 20 December 1991, just six days before the collapse of the USSR, North and South Korea re-unified under a democratic government, forming the united Korean state as we know it today. Your challenge is to find a PoD which will prevent the reunification of Korea. Go!
  18. WI Inverted Korea. South becomes Communist, North becomes Capitalist.

    Imagine, if you will, a scenario where the Soviets and Americans help liberate the Korea Peninsula, but the Soviets take notice of the South Chinese Sea... Knowing that the Soviets wanted to have access to a warm water port for their existence, they then decide to go and take the South for their...

    In a scenario where Kim il-Sung died before he could take over North Korea, how does North Korea/the "Democratic People's Republic of Korea" develop? Who takes over North Korea in lieu of Kim il-Sung? What does North Korea look under his rule?
