Dev Unawatuna

Dev Unawatuna is taking a year after A levels to work on improving his grades


Im an 18 year old trying to make the most out of life. I enjoy travelling and hope to see most of the world before I die. My other hobbies include playing sports such as football and swimming, forex trading and art. I love cars and motorcycles and like learning about and seeing how they are built and the history behind different vehicle companies. I am eager to learn new things and make new friends.

I am currently studying Maths, Physics and Accounting and hope to read mechanical engineering at university in 2020.

North Korea

4 September 2019

The other day I was scrolling through YouTube which recommended the video "My life in North Korea vs South Korea" by the Youtuber Jacob Laukaitis. The video was around 16 minutes and had 13 million views, and showed the two very different worlds of people living on either of side of the border only a few miles from each other. Jacob describes what is happening in each clip and the things he learned.

He had booked a tour of North Korea where he would catch a plane from China and then travel around North Korea for a week. Jacob said that he was instructed to always listen the tour instructors and there was one rule that the tourist must always follow, that being that you cannot go walking around by yourself. This rule meant that the tourists had their freedom taken away and this surprised me a lot since in this day and age almost all people have the freedom to venture where they want to. Jacob also stated how the North Korean citizens never interacted with the tourists and tried their best not to stare. I assume this is because they fear they would be punished. Bearing this in mind something weird that happened near the end of the tour where a surprise was made for the tourist, where they could talk and dance with local citizens in their local park. Jacob stated how unusual this was since throughout the tour, none of citizens chose to interact with them and came to the conclusion that this was a set up event made to make the citizens look happy to the outside world.

In North Korea the leaders are considered to be gods by the citizens and this idea alone can be considered crazy showing just how isolated North Korea is from the rest of the world since no other nation has this view on its leaders. There are public holidays in North Korea where they celebrate their leaders. On these days people don't need to attend work but must go to a statue of their leaders and pay their respects. If it is noticed that you have not done this it can be assumed that you will be heavily punished since that is how important and loved North Koreas leaders are. North Korea is so isolated from the rest of the world that an North Korean that escaped to South Korea told Jacob that back when he was in North Korea they would watch pirated American films and say that the sky scrapers are fake and could not possibly exist. North Korea has lasted this long although being hated by most nations because it has China as an ally. China sends resources and money to North Korea allowing the dictatorship to get richer. The nations other sources of income come from allowing drugs to travel through the country as well as allowing other illegal activities to be carried out on North Korean soil.
