My life in North Korea vs South Korea

Description:

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 - http://amzn.to/2vEkrrE;
Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden - http://amzn.to/2vEz6U1;
Nothing To Envy by Barbara Demick - http://amzn.to/2vzieiI;
1984 by George Orwell (I couldn't believe how similar some things in North Korea felt to the ones in the book) - http://amzn.to/2vE92s8.
