lol you are both silly, 1 its clean because anyone who does anything to dirty the state would be getting 10 to life in some concentration camp or shot…and when i say dirty i dont ust mean litter, i mean anything that brings a negative to their society, and 2, its empty because its a desolate sh*thole, ppl dont have money to go out, plus its a totally different society there. communism is evil
I agree with adhd. Reports say most people have been moved to collectives (farms)during the harvest season to bring in what meager crops they have. All do this except the party leaders who, by the way, are the only ones who can afford anything. Pray for the people of North Korea. Lets hope their Dear Leader gets whats coming to him. Hey, maybe we can send our’s over there. He’d feel much more at home im sure!
I ‘m curious about the “menu” in English and Vietnamese, with prices in…Dollars !!!That’s perhaps reserved for Strangers having occasions to visit this country. Too few people on the streets . And the police-woman: what does she? To show up ?!!
While in Vietnam, there are too, too much people on the sreets, and the circulation is…. wow, very dangerous with so many means of transport, – the most part motocycles imported from Japan !-
Anyway I would like the clean streets with few people in towns, when I think to the numerous people in VN !
I don’t think anything was photoshopped. Every intersection has a girl just like her instead of a streetlight, and every girl changes pose and position in sequence with each other. In a few seconds, she will turn 90 degrees to the left, put her baton down, and indicate a “green” light at that intersection. Regardless of whether there is traffic or not, each girl has to remain in sync with every other. Also, all people work during the day which is why so few people are seen. The electric is shut down nationwide around 8 pm, so all people work the same times during the same days. It is a spectacularly clean society, and no one would ever consider leaving a newspaper on a bus or having a cluttered apartment – it’s simply illegal. It is a very poor country with a brutal government, but to each their own.
Come on People!!! What was missing in ALL the Photos????
We are so used to it that we think without these things that everything looks plain! Figure it out yet?
In every store there is nothing in the walls….
I’ll tekk you what it is … The appearance of being clean is deceiving. The thing that is lacking is ADVERTISING! There is not one piece of advertising in any photograph. This is because it is probably illegal to advertise. The Government wants to tell you what to purchase and what THEY want YOU to interest you. The thing missing is the Advertising. It clutters our lives here in the Western world. But WE as capitalists like advertising. It expands our choices and allows us to be free thinking and it also allows us to think out of the realm of whatever they are pushing down our throats. The ADVERTISING even in the train station is missing. No travel destinations being shown, no soft drink ads posting the walls. No sports teams being given any type of interesting commentary. If you walk through any hub in the US. Be it a train station, bus station, or airport… There are advertisements on where to go in that city, what to do, and where to eat. If you don’t know where you are going in North Korea, you won’t be able to find it unless somebody you ask knows about it.
Strange how I think now that advertising is good after looking at these photos. Before looking at these I just hated advertising. I hated commercials, and all the clutter it brings. BUT. It is also the sign of a free world and a free thinking society. I LOVE THE US of A.

You are a very misleading person. How do you think that advertising would be beneficial to free choice? In fact, it’s the other way around, people would be much better off without advertisements, and make free decissions of their own without the constant manipulation of the advertising world. And also, advertisement is a waste of resources and human talent.
Your country is miserably broke, and technically already bankrupt. Just because China finances the US debt, the US still survives, and China in turn is dependend on exports of consumer goods to the US. But at any time in the future, China will stop financing US debts, and the US will be miserably broke then.
Your country invades other souvereign countries without UN mandates.
yea so this is not north korea, 1) no americans or allied allowed, so there would be no english 2) the closest you can get to there is the dmz, been there done that not a fun experience 3) only military personal allowed to cross the border and you stay in a building under south korean guard. 4) “north korea” is referred to as the democratic peoples republic of korea or DPROK and t he title would indicate such if posted correctly
Sorry, but this is at least 90% fake.
1) All the signage is chinese – it’s probably from China or Vietnam 20 years ago.
2) There’s a white guy listening to karaoke. There are no white guys in North Korea
Very Politicaly inspired photographs, designed to make you think a certain way.
The presenter could be seen as depicting the subject as something undesirable, simplistic
and backwards, or on the other hand tidy, clean and utopian. Which one do you relate to?
CAveman – U R ignorant. You can’t tell the difference between Korean and Chinese written characters? And YES ! ! ! North Korea does welcome tourists — under special circumstances and under very careful guidance. One reason the menu has English wording, as well as Vietnamese and Korean, is that (sorry folks) English comes closest to being a univeral trade language. Go to any other Western or Asian country and you’ll always find some people who can speak some English.
an entire state is taken hostage. wtf??! why do nobody do nothing? worst than terrorists they are.. if that poor people was sit on airplane all countries would save them.. (sorry for my unsuitable english but you understood the message)
