North Korea Run and Bike Tours

This is a video advertising the first-ever 5K charity run in North Korea. Apparently, the same company also does bike tours of North Korea (which they naturally call the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea).

I’m not sure how I feel about this. Actually, that’s a lie. I know exactly how I feel about this pandering, white-washing, PR-laden crap that glosses over the problems people in the country actually have — though I don’t think the tour company is aimed at them.
