Thank you, the basic information I needed. All needed now is to divide which length is within Pyongyang city limits and which is outside that. I guess that would require paths in Google maps.

This site helps a bit. http://www.vyapaarasia.com/n.korea/roads.asp

Some roads look imperialistic to me, for ex that special lane for bycicles at the begining of the vid where accidentally some vintage cars bump in from time to time ...

There should be a 'hidden' road network in North-Korea, only to be used by Kim.

There are rumors of a hidden metro system in pyong yang actually. And Kim Jong-Un can get a private jet so easily why does he need to take the risk of a road trip?

They don't have enough money for a private jet; his dad spent it all on Very Special Old Port.

I've read that Kim Jong Il (the father of the current dictator) was afraid of flying and always travelled by train also to China and Russia. The current leader, instead, even studied in Europe with fake documents

Because the picture and sign behind is from that "enemy" country.

North Korean signs don't use Latin script.
