Places We Will Never Visit: Pyongyang, North Korea

Scared of Rocket Man? It is known that North Korea is a mysterious and isolated country, but at least its capital Pyongyang does not look that different from any North American city.

For those of you who are interested in knowing more about the country from the ground, we recommend two excellent movies: Under the Sun, presented at Austin’s South by Southwest film festival in 2016, and the recent Liberation Day, which records the first performance of a foreign band (Laibach) in North Korea.
