As a first person account I enjoyed the depth of experience related in "The
Three Day Promise, A Korean Soldier's Memoir" By Donald K. Chung, M.D.
Father and Son publishing, Tallahassee FL, 1989, ISBN 0-942407-06-7

It is an apolitical autobiography of the journey of one Korean from the end
of WW2, North Korea, the Korean war, South Korea and on the the U.S.
It has many small details of daily life in postwar (post WW2) North Korea,
and Korean War Era North and South Korea, as well as details of his visit
back to North Korea in the 80's

Not a scholarly work, but I hope it will be useful to you.
