It's interesting and beautiful to see the humanity shining through. Not the things staged by the government, but when Jamie Barrow teaches the guides to snowboard. It's a geniune human interaction on both sides and I don't think you ever see something like this when it comes to North Korea. In a way it reminded me that they are human; that North Korea is more than Kim and missiles

People living in Pyongyang are carefully selected. Not just anybody can live there. The people they really don’t want you to see live in the countryside. The abject poverty is much more prominent where tourists and foreigners rarely go.

Not a chance. That young boy that made a stupid mistake of tearing down one of their propaganda posters was horribly tortured to death. Yes, it was a stupid thing for him to have done but he was a kid and didnt deserve, what I hate to try and imagine being, a horrible death. His father said it looked like someone took a pliers after his teeth. They are very demented people!!

Disappointing commentary. Why are you justifying a completely bizarre situation? Where do you think all the people of North Korea are? You comment multiple times about the fact that you are watched every minute and virtually everywhere you go is empty. Why do you think that is? Really disgusting and low that you demonstrate your snowboarding on fresh powder, as something beautiful. Ignorant, immature and dangerous. Unforgivable.

So were the others skiing actors, told to go act like this is a great place. OR were they the families of the elite coming to a very real resort and being served as they would be served anywhere. I mean, it can't JUST be Kim, there has to be thousands of people that are the elite. I am not being pro DPRK, just wondering what that resort really is. A PR front, or a resort for the few?
