Oh, Youth! is a 1995 North Korean comedy drama film by Jong-pal Jon, which was originally titled "Chongchuniyo!". While North Korea is not typically known for releasing comedies,[1] Oh Youth! is a rare example of a comedic film produced in the DPRK, with English subtitles, and can be viewed on YouTube.[2] Of note is that, while mention of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong-il is a typical occurrence, he is not the protagonist of the film, nor is the success of the characters attributed to him.

The film focuses on the life of a Korean family, and a romance between two characters with an interest in tae kwon do, an ancient martial art with its origins in Korea.
