    The narrator claimed that like pictured in the DPRK, he would pay 2-3 times more for a cab as a tourist from another country, as (he states) he would in “Rome or New York”. I disagree with his casual claim, as it relates to NYC. Cab rates/fares are regulated in NYC, and I have not witnessed visitors from other countries being charged more than US citizens, or residents living in NYC for that matter.

    I have an amazing, totally unique idea on how to make a North Korea documentary – Don't be an incredibly rude and offensive a$$h*** like everyone else!
    When you meet a poor person, do you constantly talk about everything they don't have with them!?
    Or perhaps you'd have an hour long discussion with a mentally ill friend about how crazy they are!?
    When family invites you in their home for a New Years Eve party will you be partying and toasting to all the mistakes they made years before?? Or will you be tapping glasses on discussions about a bright future planned?? Have some damn manners and give people a chance!!! They treat women good. Respect all but fear none. Hospitable to foreigners. There's absolutely no extremists in the Korean population oppressing women while raping boys, hell bent on jihad with all who are different than them. Same goes for Venezuala! I got nothing but love and respect for both countries and much rather see NATO bombing those who can't keep peace with all and treat women and everyone right.

    “Allowing” the elite to enjoy things like fireworks, amusement parks, western clothing and music, access to surplus food, etc., will only strengthen the Elite’s faith in the Kim family. They feel like they live a pretty good life. So who cares that one family gets the respect they deserve, or whatever they’re all brainwashed to believe. So if ever the millions of rural NKoreans outside the rich capital revolt, the Elite will likely side with the Kim family and the country will fight each other. It’s like the books/movies The Hunger Games. You have the spoiled people in the capital and the deprived people in the districts who get tired of the bull***t. That book series ended in war and revolt, FYI.

    The west should accept that countries not following the democratic system can be successful. Communism is also a western model. It is unseemly for journalists to visit N. Korea to prove that everything they see is a false presentation, false facade. Why should they want to see opposition rebellion? It's good that the presenter spoke of what the Americans did to the Koreans.

    You’re trying to make the country’s people look socially ridiculous. It’s beginning to look more and more like propaganda rather than reporting. “…When I start filming the students use their calculators like mad. But the calculations mean nothing…” SHOW ME. YOU HAVE A CAMERA!

    Little jabs like this is likely why they hate westerners.
    Journalists can’t make claims anymore that are not supported by documentary evidence. I won’t accuse anyone of lying, just that you could be if you expect to use only your word as proof.

    23:42 who buys that many water bottles/teas, and no food?! Honest this looks random as well. I’m thinking oh here’s a casual dude just shopping, but when you take a closer look, idk something isn’t quiet right, and it makes me think this is just more stages shit. I’m highly doubtful there is a upper middle class. Maybe an upper elite, but not an upper middle class. This is just another staged showing.

    This only represents the lives of a few privileged people in North Korea. Life in the capital, Pyongyang, which is like a tiny island in a sea surrounded by walls. Ordinary North Koreans cannot enter the city without a good reason. So the video depicts the life of wealthy ones only.

    Commentary is leading and biased. For example when he said the students were using their calculators and it looked fake. Well the moon landing looks fake too. Point is he is injecting his bias that he feels against NK.

    Various models of tramway street trains of different edges all made in Czechoslovakia during “steel curtain” time, some in really bad shape, probably imported from China or Russia. It brings me memory from my youth when I was growing up in “socialism with human face” society. It wasn’t that bad later in “my time” as is in Kim’s regime but I remember to hear this words from my relatives and friends as a kid so many times….”watch out your tongue and be quiet, “they” may hear as and we will end up in jail”…..constant feeling that “someone” is listening or watching, what are you saying, reading, watching, listening…..yes there were people been locked up in jail for political opinions, tortured, hanged, or put in labor camps in 50’s and 60’s , locked up like animals and worked to death. Hundreds of them died shot and tangled in barbed wired fences on state border line, killed by trained border patrols dogs as they tried to escape from eastern block to democratic west. It’s so good that time Is gone. ✌️🌞

    Obviously heavily biased commentary on a country which survives and stands strong in the face of economic veto, and oppression simply because it refuses to conform to imperialism. Effectively it says 'OK you capitalists you profess to support freedom, yet you refuse to let us stand proud, and free of unemployment, crime, illegal drug taking, prostitution, greed and exploitation. Surely that's somewhat hypocritical?' ' Also, we are proud of our race and we do not wish to dilute it.'

    The video shows well dressed, well fed, full blood individuals, many with nice cars and well stocked supermarkets. We see one thing but are told something quite different. Are we REALLY expected to absorb such brain washing?

    Get real.
