My Fascination With The North

One thing that I know is that most Malaysians are obsessed with South Korean singers, popstars, actors, drama, songs or whatever.

I don't give a shit really and no,

I do not watch Boy's Over Flowers.

(Except for a few episodes and that's the Japanese version)


Well, my point is-

Those actors, singers and popstars- I can say that 99.9999999999999% of them are South Koreans and not many people know about these North Koreans.

I don't have anything against them really (heck, I wish that I have a Korean girl as my wife..haha)..it's just that, I pity the North Korean citizens..a lot.

While the south side of Korea enjoys a wealthy dose of economy, social and entertainment; the north side in the meantime, suffers under the communism-led government.


I've written a few blogposts regarding North Korea and read a lot of other people's post too. I love the picture collection sets from boston.com regarding life in North Korea..really sums it up for me.

North Korea is such a mystery..it fascinates me a lot..i hope these photo essays could show a few glimpses of what would be the life of communism really is.

The Capital City Of North Korea- Pyongyang



The North Korean Army





The North Korean Society







Fascinating, isn't it?

Appreciate our lives here in Malaysia- we don't have to undergo such hardships to continue our lives and one interesting fact-

The citizens of North Korea never tasted chocolate before.

You guys can read more of it at boston.com, businessinsider.com, nationalgeographic.com and time.com
