September 9th: North Korea´s National Day parade – not often seen such „happy“ people.
And happy north Koreans enjoying a picknick in the park.
These pictures do not correspond to our image of Korea. News about nuclear arms, famine, poverty and being the largest prison on earth come normally to our mind.
Some facts: The Korean People’s Army (KPA) has 1,106,000 active and 8,389,000 reserve and paramilitary troops, making it the largest military institution in the world. North Korea possesses nuclear weapons.
