Basically YEs
But there is a unique intonation and dialect.
Also because two koreas have been seperated for more than 50 years,
Some words can be misundersood even between two Koreans.(south-north)
one example " 일 없습니다" means 'I'm ok' in North Korea, while 'I don't have anything to do'  in south Korea(which is rarely used)
Another point is that North Korean tries to avoid using English.
We (south korea) feel comfortable to use many english words in KOrean sentences (ice cream. computer, and many other sports or music words)
But North Korea tries to find their own vocab
So people who escaped DPRK need to learn English words in Korean language.
