Earth Nutshell has some fascinating articles about North Korea, but by far my favorite is “North Korea’s Loch Ness Monster – The Concrete Wall.” Basically, the North Korean government has invented a giant wall that the South Korean government supposedly built in the late 1970s along the entire DMZ. The wall was discovered by Kim Il-Sung in 1989, and can only be seen from the North Korean side.
Did you know North Korea has girl groups?
I did not, and now I want to see all their TV specials.
This group, Moranbong Band, was in the news today, because they were on a goodwill tour of China (endorsed by Kim Jong-Un) which was suddenly canceled before the first show for unknown reasons.
