I love North Korea ! :)
North Korea is way better than Pakistan at least haha they are our brother country I feel like.
Good joke sir. We are not isolated from the rest of the world. We are handling the covid situation better than our western counterparts.
Yes but North Korea is Korean who are pretty advanced people I feel like but that's just my impression. I also think they are similar to us China so I like them yah but that's just me.
You're an idiot. South Korea is advances. Not NK.
South Korea seems cool and i'd like to visit someday for sure.
yeah but culture is the same just politics is different.
It's not like South Asian countries where they're all just poor haha regardless of politics...
North Korea just in a rough patch of its history but Neo-Confucian culture and Joseon heritage I all celebrate. Because to me it's general East Asian cultural legacy, just not commercialized yet as much as South Korea or China or Taiwan or Japan.
And there does seem to be some fun things in North Korea although not mentioned as much. Like according to this German news source they have water parks and kareoke spaces: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StjIv33zJ9c&t=29s
Whats the point of going to NK when its like being in a prison and I can't even interact with the locals. Interacting with the locals is an important part of the tourist experience. South Asian countries are poor but NK is poorer. South Asia is rich in culture and history and business opportunities and it is quite diverse too. NK might have a lot of potential like every place does but the ruler isn't smart enough to allow the nation to progress.
Yes I understand North Korea is bad for most people just me personally I am trying to promote it because I think they're similar to China my mother country is all. South Asia definitely has cultural heritage as well I apologize for my harsh remarks earlier. I'm just trying to promote North Korea in a better light to the world is all but I understand where you're coming from thanks. The North Korean leadership has been bad I'll agree...
Yea. The worst part is that its just one man at fault and not the population. That one man's family who have ruled the country are at fault for isolating an entire nation. If both NK and SK were united, that would have been cool.
Also, you promote a country by facts or some positives. Not by belittling other countries.
You’re right sorry
Feel free to delete my comments.
Look, i have nothing against you. I've rarely been rude to you. But sometimes it seems like you just go all in and perhaps target my opinions whereas my opinions aren't even that aggressive at times.
It's a combination of factors for me. Growing up in America, specifically white majority Seattle, I faced passive discrimination in Academia and workplace for being different. I was not white like all my professors and bosses. I tried very hard to be "American" so that I can seem respectable and be promoted. Then I meet British people at work who crap all over being American and claim that they're better. Just because they were born white or something. This to me is an insult to all the work I put in becoming respectable and climb the ladder. Then I see that a huge amount of Brits are just Pakistani people, basically Asian immigrants not even better than me. Yet just because they are British they automatically think they're better too. To me it's just like a triple insult to my whole life. I think bullying people is a common part of the culture in UK and northeastern US. Maybe it's that toxic culture that rubbed off on me a little bit I apologize.
Ok, tough luck. We've all have had our fair shared of struggles. Its strange tbh. More people from different walks of like enter America than UK and yet this problem exists there. I haven't had such issues in Britain. Its not perfect. I do feel things would have been different if i was white but i am what i am and i do my own thing. Secondly, so what if lot of British Pakistanis are there. I have never said im better than you. I don't know you, you don't know me so i can't say who is better and you and i have better things to worry about really. Sorry to hear about what you've faced. Hope things work out for you. Just keep in mind, I'm not an enemy.
It's not outright discrimination it's more like feeling you don't fit in. When I looked at my University all my professors were white, well-behaved, church going men with perfect families. Me as an Asian kid from second world country just doesn't belong. But you're right Pakistani people have never done anything to me. It's only like white British people who insulted my entire life struggle not you...
I do get that feeling sometimes that i don't fit in. Sometimes i feel thst with my own people as well. Thats life sadly. My teachers were pretty diverse, white, black, Asians, orientals, middle easterns. I've reached the point in my life where i don't have time to take nonsense from third parties. Do your own thing, let your hard work speak. Sometimes you'll need to respond to show them their place. When someone would mess about with me at word, i wouldn't care if they're my seniors, i wouldn't take nonsense from them. If i know im not slacking at work and am working properly without messing around, why should i take nonsense from above?

North Korea has beautiful culture from Neo-Confucian Joseon dynasty. I want to visit someday and support them.
@Tea-Spaghetti I'm sure their cultural heritage is probably full of beauty and vibrancy; but the dictatorial nation-state has oppressed its own citizens to the point of paving over that rich cultural heritage with gloom and oppression on an unprecedented scale. There's a reason why plenty of people flee from N. Korea, yet nobody tries to sneak INTO N Korea (with the possible exception of investigative journalists and extreme "adventure travellers").
If you actually visited N Korea you'd only be permitted to see the state-sanctioned tourist areas, any money you spend will directly support the totalitarian state, not the actual citizens who live there.
Well there are some state sponsored attractions too at least according to this German news source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StjIv33zJ9c&t=29s
I mean state sponsored places for citizens to have fun.
@Tea-Spaghetti yeah but it's all a facade, think about it, the state lets you see what they want you to believe is true of their nation as a whole. You don't get to see how the sausage is made, because if you did it would make you sick to your stomach.
Country deserves to be recognized for its beauty like you say. North Korea actually was richer than South Korea in the past.
Thank you for talking about North Korea I like them
Better than being beheaded for having a photo of something else...
