Land of the Sun

 

DPRK | Land of the Sun

From a stalinist regime to an amusement park? Since Kim Jong-Un was elected as North Korea’s supreme leader, entertainment has a huge priority in Pyongyang. For most citizens it is a privilege to visit the capital, not to speak of living there. Only the elite of the Workers’ Party is allowed to move freely within the country. Plow and ox characterise life outside the centre of power.  A quarter of the children under five years of age still suffer from malnutrition these days. As a ‘tourist’ you will only be able to notice such things interline.
