These people from North Korea try American BBQ and all the many available sauces for the first time. This is an interesting video to see the reactions, especially to the sauces. But what they say about life and food in North Korea reinforces what we already know. They have little food, rarely do they have meat and the people are good and kind. And apparently South Koreans waste a lot of food too.

I watched and enjoyed it very much. One of my nephew's wives is from South Korea and I'm going to send her the video to get her perspective.

South Koreans have so much wealth they practically eat BBQ every week but not North Koreans.

That video, which was posted about a week ago, was a knock-off of the popular series of "Korean women try ..." YouTube videos that started about six months ago. While I won't claim that I have seen all of them, I think that the American BBQ was about the first American food that the Korean girls liked. (The pizza video came later.) For the record, most of the South Korean girls appear to be models and journalists and have mostly waif-ish figures.

^^ Nah they have normal figures they're only waifish if you put them next to big western women. BBQ is probably my favorite food next time I go to NYC which will probably be soon I have like 3 BBQ places I want to try.

Those who escaped to South Korea probably do not represent North Koreans.
I am not saying they are bad or anything, but they are likely to say what westerners want to hear.

The Chinese political refugees have very different opinions about China from other Chinese immigrants too.

Also for the record, American BBQ is easily available in Seoul (although not as widespread), and it is just as good as here in the US.

not just in North Korea. Beef for example is very expensive in South Korea. Not that kind of stuff one can afford to eat on a daily basis.
