Recent Scenes from North Korea Including the Mass Games

Young koreans hold up colored display cards to form a background image for a performance of North Korea's Mass Games on September 12, 2008. The Mass Games are designed to entertain or celebrate holidays, and place emphasis on group dynamics rather than individual prowess. This particular show's name is "Prosper the Motherland!", dedicated to the 60th Anniversary of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, celebrated on September 9th.

Have you noticed that even if you're upset, when someone takes a picture you smile?

Why does it not appear that the people there are as unhappy and oppressed as the government makes them out to be?

The headline "Kim Jun-Il is Ill" just never ceases to amuse me.
