Girls in the street of Pyongyang are all wearing some kind of makeup. They have their hair done and everything, not as fashionable but presentable. I asked about the hairstyle posters, and it was just a suggestion and easier for stylists, you see plenty hairstyles besides the supposedly approved style. I am not defending North Korea, I just think media should get all facts before reporting them.

Trump has opened the door for NK to join the world his step into NK was so important yet the MSM paints him as a racist Nazi. If Hillary had won we NEVER would see peace, they used NK in a negative way.

I've read a part of a book 'Nothing to Envy' about a north korea refugee. And the chinese name of this book is we are the happiest people in the world. The refugee was a doctor. After her family, all her kids and husband died of starvation, she crossed the river and fled to a chinese village. It was a cold night. And she straved. Suddenly she saw a small bowl of rice and meet in front of the door of a ordinary family. She was confused and didn't know why people prepared food outside for others, until she heard dog barking. Her heart was broken at that time. Because she always trusted her nation and everthing she learned there. Even though they starved all the time, she still thought they just had some difficult times. And still, they were the happiest people in the world. But at that time she realized that even dogs in china can eat better than they did. They thought china was the same as they were. I remember how I cried for this heartbroken story. Especially when I knew our government would send the refugees back and everyone knows what is waiting for them. I feel so sorry for them. And so disappionted in my country.

When "one of the most repressive regimes on the planet" does it's worst all it can do is prevent women from wearing makeup. What a fucking nightmare for the long suffering citizens of the PDK. I mean wearing makeup is a human right, and without it life loses all meaning.

Acknowledging the tragedy of it, I still want to point out that if the only reason her family was arrested was because of her smuggling business, then she got her brother killed over makeup. It's hard to believe she was striving for grander freedom of expression when she started her business.

I'm surprise that only few thousand people try to escape. Living like a captive life with no freedom at all...even your hair cut. You will have a rebellion in America or France. But as they never saw a rebellion before...looks Hong Kong rebellion again chinese governament. Some young people are ready to lose their lives for freedom until 2047.

THE EVIL INTENTIONS OF THE WESTERN WORLD TO DESTROY THE COMMUNIST NORTH KOREA, MAKES NORTH KOREA UNABLE TO TRUST THEM. SANCTIONS AFTER SANCTIONS WERE IMPOSED ON THE YOUNG COUNTRY. IF YOU ARE TREATED THE SAME WAY BY ALL COUNTRIES HOW WOULD YOU FEEL? GIVE THEM A CHANCE AND TIME TO CHANGE FOR A BETTER COUNTRY. WHAT YOU DID ONLY MAKE THE POOR AND THE SICK SUFFER MORE AND DIE EARLIER.
