Unfortunate that we can't even have North Koreans in this discussion. It would be great to chat with them. Our loss and theirs.

99.9% people here have never been to NK or knew someone had been to NK before. I knew some S. Korea guys work in N. Korea for half year or less.

America hurts them hardly in early 1950s. They will never forget it. Chinese won't allow S. Korea annex N. Korea as well.

Technically, I wonder how the mods of the city-data forum would react to someone calling North Korea a terrible nation, especially with suspicion about the city-data forum being operated from, and based, in North Korea.

I have a friend, from Germany, who went to North Korea on a tour. He was surprised by the freedom he was allowed, even to take a lot of photos and videos. He said the people actually seemed quite happy, but of course they only show you what they want you to see.

North Korean defectors are in plenty in South Korea and they show up regularly on morning talk shows.
It always baffles me how they seem so similar, yet so alien to us.
They have crazy stories about how they thought South Korean bank tellers were thieves for taking their reintegration money, and how they did not know how to get through the electronic subway entrance.
Also, North Korean cuisine they say is very different from South Korean cuisine today, as they do not have the resources and ingredients. (Not distrbuted by the dear leader I guess?) Everything tastes very bland and boring in North Korea.

There is a website in English where interested people can ask defected North Koreans questions about their former home country.

Ask A North Korean | NK News - North Korea News

I found some entries here to be fascinating.

I am wondering do they even allow tourist to get in the country freely? Even if you can get in, do they let you get out freely?
