Recently, North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-un “climbed” Mt. Paektu, the country’s tallest mountain. The mountain is an important place, so Kim Jong-un’s visit is very much a photo opportunity. A propaganda one, too.
Photos have emerged of a "new" Kim Jong-un hairdo. Simply put, it is spectacular. But how did we get here? When did this happen? Let's take a look back at Kim's coifs from over the years.
First announced in May 2014, Glorious Leader is a platformer where you control North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. And just like the man it's based on, the game has been caught up in a hacking fiasco.
In what should surprise no one, The Interview features Korean that really doesn't make that much sense.
The ‘Young Master’ visited a North Korean Navy submarine base this week to ‘provide guidance’ over military drills.

When I found myself in one of the most isolated and mysterious countries on the planet naturally the first thing I noticed was the profound assortment of vehicles in the airport parking lot. Behind the wall of mines and propaganda in North Korea are still people, and many people still like cars.

The outside world doesn't know a whole lot about what is really going on in North Korea—how the people actually live and what they do. One thing we can prove, however, is that at least one North Korean citizen has played the Nintendo Wii.

Wow, the North Korean troops in the above image sure stick out! If anything, their camouflage uniforms make it easier to spot them. Camo isn't supposed to do that. Good camo, anyway.
Not lots of people, mind you. Three, as far as I can tell. But there's still time before Halloween.
South Korean police are warning that downloadable games might contain North Korean malware. It's believed these could be part of a cyber attack.
