Is there any difference between Korean spoken in South Korea to the Korean spoken in North Korea?

    Much like in Vietnam, those in the North have more of a Chinese sounding accent.

    See "North–South differences in the Korean language" : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North%E2%80%93South_...

    This question has been asked here before. Some people answered that North-Korea uses some words and expressions that are considered obsolete/old-fashioned in South-Korea.

    Yes.  It is fairly subtle, but, accents are different, and some use of words.
