My life in North Korea vs South Korea

Share it with your friends Like

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 –;
Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden –;
Nothing To Envy by Barbara Demick –;
1984 by George Orwell (I couldn’t believe how similar some things in North Korea felt to the ones in the book) –

I want to thank my friends Donghyuk Shin, Vytautas Jašauskas, Urtė Laukaitytė and Leeann Roybal-Shin for their continuous support and helping making this video. I could not have done it without them!

Thank you for making this kind of Vlog. Even though I'm living here in South Korea, just few miles away from the North Korea, I never thought so deeply about how it would be so different up there. While watching your video I got to think much more about the North and everything else!! Also I liked the way you traveled South Korea. I think you enjoyed Seoul more than us in South Korea lol … anyway thank you for all your videos and especially this Vlog. If you're thinking about visiting South Korea once again, I recommend you to visit Jeju Island or Busan. Nice places to enjoy the nature and the activeness of youth. thanx!!!!!!!!!

It's so sad when you were showing the pictures at the end bc I really realised that the North Koreans had no smile,no freedom,no sun but when you went to the south there was freedom,smiles+sunshine!I wish that first of all he's not a king so don't call him that I wish he+his father never ruled the south I WISH JONG UN WOULD JUST DIE AND THE NORTH CAN HAVE A NEW FUN LEADER WHO ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT THE POEPLE INSTEAD OF HIMSELF!
