Clips from the 2012 Unhasu Orchestra performance "Let's love the future". At the very beginning of the performance, children sang the DPRK national anthem "Aegukka"
Let morning shine on this land's rivers and mountains,
Three thousand li full of silver and gold.
This is my beautiful fatherland
with a five millennia-long history.
Brought up in a brilliant culture
The glory of a wise people
Devoting our bodies and minds to this Korea,
Let us support it forever.
Embracing the atmosphere of Baekdu Mountain,
Nest for the spirit of labor,
The firm will be bonded with truth,
Will go forth to all the world.
Breasting the raging waves with soaring strength,
The country was established by the will of the people.
This limitlessly rich and strong Korea,
Let us glorify it forever.
HISTORY OF NORTH KOREA
Apparently, the following film is the most important documentary about the Korean War.
This documentary is in Greek and portrays veterans and the historic events of the Korean War.
We are very happy to know that English subtitles are included in this documentary.
In a summary of the Korean War, we would get to know that the North Koreans attacked the South Koreans and as a result of this event the United Nations on the opposite side responded to help the South Koreans.
16 Countries contributed their army to help the situation. Greece was one of them.
Greece had just finished the brutal effects of Hitler's WW II and had no option of refusing to obey the orders of the United Nations.
In the history of Greece, not even in the wildest dreams of the Greek population, did the Greeks want to engage in a war with Koreans, either with North Korea or South Korea.
In fact, even at Greek schools at the time, the teachers told children that the Garden of Eden was somewhere in Korea.
Although there's was no option for anyone to refuse a military order, there were many thousands, maybe millions of unhappy people.
So Greeks ended up in a war that they never wanted to participate in.
While viewing the documentary, you will realize that the Greeks ended up fighting the Communist Chinese who had become involved in the Korean War as well.
As stated above, this is a very important documentary and it is advisable for anyone interested in the Korean War to view this film with patience and understanding.
IN 4 PARTS with English Subtitles
Meet Kim Jong II, leader of North Korea - a nation imprisoned by poverty and with a population so hungry, people eat bugs and grass.
Now, this megalomaniacal dictator is holding the civilized world hostage with what many see as a cunning strategy of extortion, threatening to develop an arsenal of nuclear weapons. It's a strategy by which the United States has indicated it cannot abide.
In a joint production between the Discovery Channel and the New York Times, go behind the headlines to discover the little-understood origins and almost-stranger-than-truth facets of this dangerous confrontation.
See a side of Kim Jong Il rarely revealed - his love of slasher flicks and his affinity for prostitutes - and learn why the United States may have no other palatable option than to play ball with Kim, allowing him to continue his weapons development program.
It's quite literally a race against time - if North Korea, as it promises, goes into nuclear production mode, giving Kim as many as 10 nuclear bombs within six months, it would create a destabilizing offensive nuclear capability that could touch off a regional arms race...and even nuclear war. It's a game of international intrigue and high-stakes military strategy.
But more importantly, it's the story of destitute North Korea and its bizarre leader, and how he has brought the U.S. and the world face-to-face with the unimaginable.
this film details the history behind what brought North Korea into nuclear power.
In summary, Kim Jong Un came to power after they fought away the Japanese after WWII.
The Soviets and the Americans divided the country across the 38 parallel.
Kim took the lead to invade the South but after a tug of war between the two nations with China and the Soviet Union supporting the North and the US supporting the South, 3 years later, the war concluded back at the original line except with over 1 million casualties in the North and 400k S. Korean and 37k US casualties.
There was a period of lagging until Kim Jong Un started the nuclear program in order to gain bargaining power against the US for food aid/other resources.
All was well with the Clinton era until Bush came in and scrapped the entire deal. After the US invaded Iraq because of WMDs, DPRK decided to arm themselves in fear of what could happen to them.
Mr. Rychehead So when it says made in China on something, it really means made in North Korea.
msperling This vídeo is what I call wishful thinking. China profits politically a lot from this relation, having there an important ally. They will surely be good friends for a long time.

North Korea, officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, is a country in East Asia, in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula. The name Korea is derived from the Kingdom of Goguryeo, also spelled as Koryŏ.
At the end of World War II in 1945, the Korean Peninsula was divided into two zones along the 38th parallel, with the northern half of the peninsula occupied by the Soviet Union and the southern half by the United States.
Initial hopes for a unified, independent Korea evaporated as the politics of the Cold War resulted in the establishment of two separate states with diametrically opposed political, economic, and social systems.
Soviet General Terentii Shtykov recommended the establishment of the Soviet Civil Authority in October 1945 and supported Kim Il-sung as chairman of the Provisional People's Committee for North Korea, established in February 1946. During the provisional government, Shtykov's chief accomplishment was a sweeping land reform program that broke North Korea's stratified class system.
Landlords and Japanese collaborators fled to the South, where there was no land reform and sporadic unrest. Shtykov nationalized key industries and led the Soviet delegation to talks about the future of Korea in Moscow and Seoul.
In September 1946, South Korean citizens had risen up against the Allied Military Government. In April 1948, an uprising of the Jeju islanders was violently crushed.
The South declared its statehood in May 1948 and two months later the ardent anti-communist Syngman Rhee became its ruler. The Democratic People's Republic of Korea was established in the North on 9 September 1948. Shtykov served as the first Soviet Ambassador, while Kim Il-sung became Premier.
Soviet forces withdrew from the North in 1948 and most American forces withdrew from the South the following year.
Ambassador Shtykov suspected Rhee was planning to invade the North and was sympathetic to Kim's goal of Korean unification under socialism.
The two successfully lobbied Joseph Stalin to support a short blitzkrieg of the South, which culminated in the outbreak of the Korean War.
Laura Brennan Girl in a pink sweater: defects from North Korea (punishable by death in North Korea), has to completely re-learn everything she understands about society, politics, life, language, etc, and then learns English near-perfectly??? One day I hope to be as intelligent as her.
The former lover of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has been executed by machine gun amid claims that she had been appearing in pornographic videos.
There is nothing wrong with this video and no verification of that statement

North Korea Nuclear War - Our Camouflage Will Protect Us
After years of negotiations, Michaël Sztanke and Julien Alric secured a visa to get into North Korea.
After being censored on their first trip, they returned to find out how North Korean people live?
What is the real nature of this political regime?
North Korea follows Songun, or "military-first" policy.
It is the world's most militarized society, with a total of 9,495,000 active, reserve, and paramilitary personnel.
Its active duty army of 1.21 million is the 4th largest in the world, after China, the U.S., and India.
It also possesses nuclear weapons.
Well, that was weird. We were only in North Korea for five days, but that was more than enough to make it clear that North Korea is every bit as weird as I always thought it was.
In political and social sciences, communism (from Latin communis – common, universal) is a social, political, and economic ideology and movement whose ultimate goal is the establishment of the communist society, which is a socioeconomic order structured upon the common ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes, money, and the state.
Communism includes a variety of schools of thought, which broadly include Marxism, anarchism (anarchist communism), and the political ideologies grouped around both.
All these hold in common the analysis that the current order of society stems from its economic system, capitalism, that in this system, there are two major social classes: the working class – who must work to survive, and who make up a majority of society – and the capitalist class – a minority who derive profit from employing the proletariat, through private ownership of the means of production.
(the physical and institutional means with which commodities are produced and distributed), and that political, social and economic conflict between these two classes will trigger a fundamental change in the economic system, and by extension a wide-ranging transformation of society.
The primary element which will enable this transformation, according to this analysis, is the social ownership of the means of production.
