OK, so, Kim Jong-un just threatened the U.S. with a nuclear threat. Again. We all know the North Korean leader is a little crazy, but now we can say we know a lot more about the repressive communist regime. Why? Because last month, North Korea began allowing foreigners to bring smart phones into the country for the first time ever and access a 3G network.
Enter Associated Press journalists Jean Lee and David Guttenfelder, who are now using Instagram to dilligently and beautifully document daily life within the otherwise unseen life of North Koreans. Here are some things we just found out about North Korea thanks to these snapshots.
1. Their traffic cop uniforms? Fabulous.
2. Hair styles for women? Not so much.
3. Hospital technology is straight out of 1981.
4. And the statues in Pyongyang are straight out of some sort of bizarre, cartoon rock band nightmare.
5. Yep. Confirmed. They really don’t like us.
6. But at least their liquor seems strong.
7. It’s desolate. And eerily beautiful.
Keep your eyes peeled for more illuminating snapshots from Lee and Guttenfelder, and let us know what else you’re finding out about our foes to the east.
