During the rainy season, the wall collapsed and the farm workers were injured.”

Currently, it is known that the farm workers of the Ilsin-ri Cooperative Farm are forced to work day and night, working day and night as well as daytime work in a situation where they have to push through the plans for the construction of a rural dwelling house given by each working group during a busy farming period.
