I finally managed to track down an English-subtitled version of The Flower Girl (1972) the other day.
I imagine it will be a while before I manage to get around to watching it, but the iconic opening scene did remind me that the film was so popular in North Korea that its star graced a DPRK banknote (that’s actress Hong Yong-hui in the bottom picture, centre).
Stay tuned for more updates as I recently got my hands on a few more North Korean films and will let you know about them as soon as I have time.

I just watched the English subtitled version of Flower Girl and A Traffic Controller on Crossroads, both which I brought back with me from my last trip to the DPRK.
Interesting blog, glad I found it.
Thanks. I hope to update it with some more rare/random films in the coming weeks.
