One year ago I went on a strictly guided 7 day-tour in North Korea where they took away my passport and did not allow me to explore anything on my own. North Korea was definitely the weirdest country I had ever visited and throughout that trip I kept wondering what life was like in the neighboring South Korea, because it used to be the same country just over 60 years ago.

To answer my questions, this year I traveled to South Korea and made this video, where I compare my time in the North and my time in the South. I still have a lot of questions about the whole situation, but one thing was clear - the daily lives of the Korean people couldn't be any more different than they are right now.

My favorite books about North Korea:

Dear Leader by Jang Jin Sung - http://amzn.to/2vEkrrE;
Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden - http://amzn.to/2vEz6U1;
Nothing To Envy by Barbara Demick - http://amzn.to/2vzieiI;
1984 by George Orwell (I couldn't believe how similar some things in North Korea felt to the ones in the book) - http://amzn.to/2vE92s8.

9:18 broke my heart.. Those kids did not even smile.. They live in a society that is literally based around celebrating their "beloved leader and shining star".. I am disgusted.

Imagine how many South Koreans watched about North Korea in YouTube just because they're not allowed to visit each other. And how many South Koreans pray to God everyday for the freedom of their North Koreans. They all are Koreans there should not be any South or North Koreans. How sad. Imagine if you were in their place...

Tanta diferença. Minha mãe já assistiu uma reportagem inteira sobre a Coreia do Sul e ela ainda diz que k-pop é da Coreia do Norte....... O pior é que ela sabe das coisas horríveis que acontecem lá, mas ok, o preconceito de dizer "ah mas é tudo igual" fala mais forte né

한국 사람들은 관심이 많지 않으면 북한에 대해 잘 몰라요. 정치적인 이슈 말고, 문화와 삶에 대해서요. 간접적으로 보여주셔서 감사합니다. 더 알고싶어요. 언젠간 통일이 되어야 할텐데 말이죠.
South Koreans don't know much about North Korea unless they are very interested. It's not about politics, it's about culture and life. Thank you for showing me indirectly. I want to know more. One day, it's going to be unified.

North Korea is always a dangerous place where I do not want to go there, because I want to go South Korea, which is safe place to travel and not too dangerous cities. I love South Korea than North Korea.

ask this question to your country US and Russia. They have divided not only Korea also Germany. They completely fucked up Eastern Germany. Even after unity, the eastern part is still suffering, but it's improving from the help of the federal government. I think the Korean part did not have that opportunity to united with the South Korean part.

Wow.. I just want to say THANK YOU. It was one of the best videos I've ever seen about SK. You share your thoughts and discovered the country like I want to do so. I cried and laugh with you all along. I'm really sensitive about the situation between South and North Korea and I find you really did a good job on it.

6:41 Don’t do that because a sign could hit you and also don’t expose your friends story unless your 100000% sure the North Koreans can’t get him back.
