North Korean science fiction

In the North Korean sci-fi story “Change Course,” a plane with a bomb on board is saved by North Korean scientists who create an anti-gravitational field. The story promotes solidarity, peace, and love for the motherland, highlighting the close relationship between literature and politics in North Korea. North Korean sci-fi often includes political messages and portrays North Koreans as heroes trying to save others, while Americans are portrayed as the villains seeking to monopolize and weaponize technology. While these plots may seem ludicrous to Western readers, they offer a unique perspective and challenge familiar plot structures and tropes.
