NK News is an independent, privately owned specialist information source that focuses on North Korea. This site intends to bring authoritative news, opinion & analysis, research tools, repository, data and subject specialists together in one convenient place. 2-3 second loading time gets news from more than 100 resources. Also, we made the aggregation plug-in which is for grapping content about 100 of sites, doing auto-categorization, auto-tagging, and many other features.

Nk News is one of a kind unique website which helps authors to shows their articles. It is a multisite project so that also leads to Nk pro and KCNA. In Nk new some of the articles are free and some of them are content restricted (i.e. they are paid content articles). Some NK News content is automatically pay-walled after a specified amount of articles are read, free, by each user each month.

Whereas NK pro articles are entirely paid content, users have to sign up and complete registration phase then afterward they will get subscription packages that depends on visitors choice either they choose daily or monthly packages once they have subscribed only then they are able to read articles. Stripe gateway handles subscription packages. There are some outsource articles that are through endowed through aggregators. We have gone through various phases of development for this site along with outshine functionality implementation.
