I found this guy's profile on instagram and he has some really cool photos from the isolated country. I've been enjoying the photos very much so I thought I'd share.

Yeah if I could go anywhere, I'd love to go to North Korea. I love an adventure and going places where few people get to go

I actually would like to go. That kind of bizarre society fascinates me.

I wonder why people in America and the West in general are obsessed with this non entity of a country. So much coverage for a country that doesn't deserve or warrant it. There are similar atrocities in Liberia and Mauritania yet they scarcely get the coverage that North Korea gets. The West and America will cover insignificant news from this non entity of a country such as "Kim Jong-Un goes to a park" while ignoring real news. Is it any wonder why most people consider the mainstream media a joke?

For political reasons.
US media also attacks every bit of China when something bad happens, but ignores the same problems (eg. pollution, corruption, human rights...) in India and other developing countries.

You're right. Western media has a definite anti-China bias.
