Surprising Forbidden Photos of Life in North Korea…

Welcome to the almighty North Korea, a reclusive country that doesn’t give a crap about anyone. The country that loves making threats and bluffing it’s way through everything. So… what’s life like? David Guttenfelder visited this majestic country and snapped up a bunch of photos. I’m sure some of these photos are forbidden by the NK government, such as taking photos of soldiers. There’s also a snapshot of Dennis Rodman somewhere along these photos.
