The article discusses the experiences and challenges faced by foreign journalists and visitors in North Korea, a country known for its isolation and secrecy. Jean H. Lee opened the first American news agency in Pyongyang, facing significant challenges due to the government's tight control over media. The article also touches on undercover reporting by journalists like Silvia Carrasco, who captured the 'unseen North Korea' while posing as a tourist. Western tourism in North Korea is increasing, with agencies like Koryo Tours facilitating visits. Ian Bennett, a volunteer with Choson Exchange, provides entrepreneurship workshops in North Korea, indicating a potential shift in the government's stance towards free markets. The article also highlights the persecution of Christians in North Korea, with NGOs like Aid to the Church in Need and Open Doors working to support the religious minority. The recent peace talks between North and South Korea, including a summit with Donald Trump, are seen as a positive step towards ending the Korean War and the country's long-standing isolation.
