I spent 2 years living and teaching English in South Korea — it was one of the best decisions of my life! After getting hooked on the delicious food, vibrant life and modern culture of Seoul — I was really curious to see what life is like North of the border…
So exactly 3 years ago, I took a trip to Pyongyang, North Korea for 3 days (I’m one of the last Americans to step foot on North Korean soil). I made a video there — one of my first ever — and it currently has over 17 million views.
But what is life really like in both Koreas? Are they more similar, or different? The answer is a little of both — so join me in today’s video as I compare and contrast North Korea with South Korea.
What are your thoughts? Have you ever been to either North or South Korea? Would love to hear from you in the comments below!
