North Korean Mass Dance in Sepia and in Black and White

North Korean Mass Dance

Ladies dancing with ladies in Pyongyang, North Korea.  Sources informed us that all the men were out building houses in the countryside to help meet some grand initiative deadline that the government had set and was woefully behind on.

A North Korean mass dance is staged to provide wholesome fun and traditional entertainment for it’s citizens. If your housing political network has arranged a mass dance than attendance is mandatory – unless of course you are out building houses in the countryside.  We were the only men in attendance and to the quiet amusement/embarrassment of the North Korean ladies we actually partnered up and participated.

  1. This is amazing – I teach at university in South Korea and last week’s topic in one of my classes questioned the topic of North and South Korea uniting – a topic that raised much emotion in my students. Keep up the great work!

    • Please keep in tune with this blog – I have some great DMZ photos from the North that I will be posting and some of my friends who are gifted writers will be contributing also. Official party line passed on to us as tourists is that the North is eager to unite – if course its not all that simple.
