Hi, most of the place names in North Korea had been copied from a web site called "38northdigitalatlas.org". We have received a complaint from the copyright holders about this. The user who added the information has admitted to copying it. The copyright holders have asked us to remove the data. We have tried to convince them to allow us to keep it but it wasn't possible, so I've redacted the affected place nodes (and some boundaries) in https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/59473904.
If you happen to have access to material than can legally be used to re-add some of the now missing place names, then your help is very welcome. Please be meticulous in specifying your sources when adding place names though - we don't want to re-import 38northdigitalatlas.org data through the back door. This particularly applies to information sourced from Wikipedia/Wikidata - please do not use them as sources.
