A Secret Look Into The City Of Pyongyang, North Korea

TIME offers an interesting look into a trip to Pyongyang, North Korea via a ’secret video’ taken by photographer Steve Gong. With constant military surveillance in North Korea very little images of everyday life are released to the global public. Using a Canan 5D hanging around his neck, Steve Gong brings the world Pyongyang:

    I hope if North Korea is ever free, or they are “liberated” that these people all live and see a better time. I dont wish them so much the nonsense of a Western world, or so called Western “Democracy” or some crap…Just a better day. So many were lost to the lies of such a dream in Iraq…I hope NK sees a brighter day.

    Looked free/clean and organized, but we all know that that’s not the case.
    Seemed to be few people for 3.2 million in Pyongyang.

    Pyongyang is about as accurate of a portrayal of all of North Korea as Disney World is of America. And for those who commented about the cleanliness, of course, this is the only place foreigners ever get to see, so it must look perfect at all times. Wouldn’t want to tarnish the reputation of the eternal president.

    I see they perfected the art of totally controlling their visitors while making them believe they are actually doing something they are not supposed to. There’s nothing secret in this video – it’s exactly how North Korean regime wants the life in this country portrayed. Steve Gong is just a tool of the Dear Leader’s propaganda machine.

    Has just the right amount of sterile, controlled order that East Berlin used to have. Same bland buildings.

    And everyone in the countryside is fricking starving.
