    North Korea confirms arrest of US citizen

    North Korea has confirmed that it had arrested a US citizen in November, saying he had admitted to unspecified charges and suggesting he would be formally prosecuted.
    The man, identified as Pae Jun-Ho, entered North Korea on November 3 as a tourist, and "committed a crime" against the country, the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said on Friday.

    "In the process of investigation, evidence proving that he committed a crime against the DPRK was revealed. He admitted his crime," the agency said in a short despatch.

    "Legal actions are being taken against Pae in line with the criminal procedure law", it added, without elaborating.

    I think it would be risky (yes), but interesting.

    They put you on a tour and force you to watch their propaganda. It's like Disney World, but it sucks. They don't let you wander around, at all. You don't speak to anyone who is not trained, from nearly birth, to do so.

    Obviously, the guy in the OP article thought he could do otherwise - wrong.

    Re: North Korea confirms arrest of US citizen

    DPRK is such a backward, clown show of a country, it is almost hard for me NOT to want to travel there, so I can experience firsthand the idiocy, fake patriotism, and delusions of the government believing they've trick me into believing they are a benevolent country.

    Just the novelty of traveling to the most backward country with the biggest personality cult the world has ever seen is irresistible.

    Whatever this man did, he probably deserved to be arrested, as the NK gov is usually trying to gain favour with foreigners, as opposed to arresting them. Unless of of course he is a naturalised South Korean, which his name possibly suggests.
