While North Korea is ruled by a ruthless dictator, South Korea is enjoying democracy. Even though they have the same peninsula home, they are the complete opposite of each other. A German photographer named Dieter Leistner created a project that was called “Korea-Korea”. He took pictures in both North Korea and South Korea to show how different the two countries are.

It’s true that North Korea and South Korea are two different countries, but the pictures look like they were taken in different centuries! I think it’s pretty clear that the Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un wants to isolate the nation from the rest of the world.
