We Visit North Korea

North Korea guards many secrets behind barbed wire and well-armed soldiers. This mountainous countryonce known to its people as the Land of the Morning Calmtoday is anything but calm. The Kim family of ruthless dictators has ruled North Korea since the Korean War more than 60 years ago. Today, its citizens live without electricity, food, or freedom. One minute Marshal Kim Jung-un threatens nuclear war against the world; the next, he vows to open up his beautiful country as a tourist attraction. Those who dare to visit the gleaming monuments and museums, theaters and opera houses of the capital city of Pyongyang, all attended by crisply uniformed workers, can t help but wonderwhat is it like in the North Korea that you aren t allowed to see?
