The DMZ is the 4km demilitarised zone between North and South Korea.To give you a very brief history lesson, Japan lost it's 35year rule of Korea after WWII, and was split according to Soviet communist rule in the north and US allied occupation of the south. The Korean war began in the early 50's when both sides aimed to unify the nation, however a crazy US general pushed UN forces too far north and China got scared that democracy was getting too close so joined forces with the North to push communist rule back down to where the DMZ lies today.I was staying in a great little hostel in ......and the owner, a nice Australian guy called Greg, told me of a tour to the North Korean border he'd done many years earlier and the only way to do it properly is to go on one of the Us military tours cos You gain more access and are given a briefing on how to act and shit. For example not like the Russian tourist who in 2013 ran though the two blue buildings into North Korea as a joke. Ah ha hahah. Yeah nice one, you could have been shot with lazers from space and sparked off an invasion from space aliens you IDIOTAnyway, the tour is about 100bucks but well worth it - it a great family day out! You're taken into the tunnels below the DMZ, the story of which goes a little something like this; In the 90's the military discovered a secret tunnel near Seoul originating from North Korea, capable of deploying 3000men in 2hours or 1500 Arabian silverback camels in just under 3 (pregnant females in a little over 4). When the south called a meeting with the north asking for an explanation, the stroke of genius from the north was to take a couple of days to respond, during which time they'd been down and painted the tunnel black, claiming that they were coal mines.Nice try kim Jong ill - YOU LOOOOOOSE! A goose could even spot that wasn't coal. So yeah, Since then several others have also been found which hasn't helped massively in north south relations, a complex political dynamic which I often compère to the relationship between neighbours and home and away.We also spent time on the border, not making any sharp movements as North Korean soldiers are watching with binoculars. The guards are also interesting. Because of the mutual agreement to be unarmed on the DMZ (after the 1957 axe murder incident - which always seem to end with negative energy), the guards are all martial arts experts and capable of killing a man with a lethal blow. But they look kind of weedy, especially the two Toms peeping around the corners, which I actually mistook for mannequins (or scarecrows - because in Korea they use shop dummies pimped up with last seasons outdoor colours, really! They're the most advanced scarecrows I've ever seen).The yellow circles on the walls shown in the video are dynamite holes, where the black paint has almost disintegrated (with North Koreas pride).Anyway, I can only speak for myself, but I'd love to go on a proper tour around North korea, so Kim Jong Un if you are reading this please invite me. I promise I will not get drunk and shit in your corridor like Dennis Rodman, but I would like to see your frozen father like Dennis did, just for shits and giggles.Tracks:”Glad to meet you” 반갑습니다"Korea does what It is Determined to Do!"
