Quote In the 1960ĺs, four US soldiers serving in the Korean Demilitarised Zone embarked on an extraordinary journey. At the height of the Cold War, this unlikely band of brothers crossed the most heavily fortified area on earth and defected to DPRK. No-one knew why they did it.

For nearly 40 years their life was hidden from the outside world.

Not even the US government knew their fate.
Only one remains in DPRK.
This is his story.

Maybe one of the many reasons, why even nowadays it's not easy for US-citizens to travel to North Korea. But for those it's sometimes, somehow possible (with much more controlling and surveillance and more restricted routes). No way for South Koreans, except via the Hyundai Asan-made possibilities.

@ingo: Those "possibilities" have been shut down since a soldier shot and killed a South Korean tourist at Mount Kumgang a few years ago.

And the suicide of Mr.Chung ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chung_Mong-hun ), the CEO of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyundai_Asan was annother reason.
Anyways, we don't plan to visit that kind of DPRK-Disneyland at all ;)

I'm afraid that you will have to listen the "guides". They seem to decide where you want to go.

Oh, sure, this is a fact. You don't have any chance just for a city-walk in the evening on your own. Only very rarely this was possible for a Western tourist.

Absolutely pointless. Even if you really could make that - noone will ever notice that. Neither inside he country, nor abroad.

For this idea goes the same. When the "Dear Leader" was still alive, you had a tiny chance for that, if you would have been s Swedish girl. Blond and with a top model-body.

Overe there it is. The Nomenklatura let it rebuild by the army and "volunteers", that's all.

Err, a semi-spohisticated idea. Link to "www.thenational.ae"

@Gag, I thought we were just using that for local NK productions. This is an UK documentary and the other is Polish. There are many other entries that have been left out purposely because they are not North Korean.

I thought that it might be useful to tag films that are not North Korean but include North Korean vehicles, so i added "honorary".
