See You Again in Pyongyang - A Journey into Kim Jong un's North Korea

Author(s): Travis Jeppesen

Current Events & Reportage

"An aura of uncertainty hovered over the streets of Pyongyang, where whispered gossip and rumor form the unofficial currency. There were other currents flowing through the air, of course-the omnipresent whiffs of paranoia and suspicion. But there was also a palpable sense of hopefulness, an optimism of the potential changes that the new young leader might bring. I hadn't expected to find such a colorful place. I certainly didn't expect to be received with as much warmth as I was ... Above all, North Koreans want you not only to feel welcome but to be impressed by their country, of which they are immensely proud. I knew better than to be seduced by it all, but I couldn't help being charmed. I knew about the nukes, I knew about the concentration camps, I knew about the systematic injustices perpetrated by the regime against the populace. But is that really all there is to it?"
