Well, me too, but there's barely any interior pics of NK's other hotels, which have been open since at least the 1980's.

Beautiful construction. The history of this hotel is really fascinating.

They must be actors!

not necesary, maybe 1% of population have a good lifre style is enough, sufficient to show that Koreans live well, while not see poverty in the photos ...

Ryugyong hotel may be actually a giant inter-continental missile with a nuke warhead at the top. Beware!

Yeah, sure! A dip into the NKorean 'reality' instantly shatters all the false ideas, prejudices and misconceptions that suited so well the NK = Axis of Evil war of words.

It is not the NKoreans' fault that the rest of the world refuses to accept that the reality of that country is quite different to what they imagine life in NK is like. In other words, it is quite clear to me that life in NK is not as bad and grim as many of us are duped into believing by the neocon propaganda.

A picture paints a thousand words. These NK photos speak for themselves
and we should not ignore the reality depicted by them in favour of malicious and propagandistic nonsense intend to unfairly demonize the people of NK.

P.S. Let us not forget that these photos were taken by American journalists.

Well, that is your own guess work, your own estimate. You are free to retreat into a reality of your own making. Yet the reality on the ground as depicted by neutral journalists contradicts your patronizing assumption.

sure if I have no idea what the real truth of this country so isolated by the media. I only manage to guess what a blog read by reports in newspapers around the world on TV etc ... hopefully North Korea has been really good, it would mean that communism is a failure so complete as we want to sell every day ... I hope one day to visit this country really fascinates me ...

So do I. Perhaps I will be in for a rude awakening to reality. The truth is that it is difficult to tell for sure how life is like in NK. One thing is certain: the cult of the personality of Kim is disturbing.

It's interesting to see how dark-skinned many of the people are here. Whenever I think of Koreans, I always think of all the pale people (particularly girls and women) I saw in the South when I went there this past summer.

More than anything (including ethnic differences) the reason South Koreans may be so pale is that they still consider fair skin to be aesthetically pleasing, the exact opposite of the trend in the western world today, where fair skin is associated with ill-health -- you have to be tanned. I know for a fact that China has a huge market for skin whitening creams; it's quite frightening. :P Perhaps the same is true for South Korea.
I also wonder if the proportion of farmers in North Korea is substantially greater than in the South. And as you know, manual outdoor labour will eventually give you a tan, hence the traditional stigma associated to it.
