'The Privileged' Store in North Korea – Part 1


Ok, so this is my 46th video that I uploaded, many people asked me..
“How could you upload youtube video in NK?”.
“He uploads the video after he back to Indonesia, because he didn’t dare if he upload directly from NK”.
Nope..that is not entirely True..

The answer is..

I already back to Indonesia, and currently I live in Indonesia..
My first 23 videos was uploaded when I was in North Korea.

The most different thing that when I uploaded video in NK, for a 15 minute video needed two days to upload, because the internet there was unstable due to electricity on off several times in a day..I canโ€™t subscribe for cellular internet mobile because its way too expensive and..not reliable too…
but..when in Indonesia, I can choose which provider for internet and to upload a 15 minute video need only few minutes…
back to this video..
I was going to a store which was located inside the Diplomatic Compound in Munsu District, behind Vietnam Embassy (you can check it out in Google Maps)
Sure..because these videos is about my daily life in NK…so I only posted about my routines things that I am doing in NK).

This store named Pyongyang Shop, which only several people who can access inside, only Foreigners and local Korean people who can get permission to be inside Diplomatic Compound (usually Korean people who works for foreign Organisations and embassies).

Btw.. sorry for bad English and Korean..

Any viewers who understand Korean language might be laughing hearing me trying to make conversations with the locals..please pardon me
