1) la marijuana est légale et n'est pas classée comme une drogue

2) six anciens soldats américains vivent en Corée du Nord depuis 1962

3) actuellement la Corée du Nord est le seul pays au monde à avoir capturé un navire américain

4) ce n'est pas un pays communiste (sisi)

5) la Corée du Nord est en l'an 102 et non pas 2013 car le calendrier se base sur l'année de naissance de Kim Il Sung (1912)

6) le pays possède le plus grand stade au monde: 150 000 sièges.

7) en 2012 des archéologues nord-coréens auraient annoncé avoir retrouvé la tannière d'une licorne...

8) le nord-coréen est classé selon sa "valeur" aux yeux du gouvernement coréen. Il existe 51 rangs sociaux et chaque individu est classé selon sa position sociale, économique et génétique (selon le système du "Songbun"). Ce classement est déterminant dans l'éducation et les opportunités qui se présenteront (ou non) dans la vie du nord-coréen.

9) A la frontiere entre la Corée du Nord et du Sud il y a une ville fantome construite seulement pour attirer les sud-coréens de l'autre coté de la frontière. Dans la ville de Kijongdong des hauts-parleurs diffusent des chants et des opéras de propagande jusqu'à 20 heures par jour.

10) Pendant 20 ans l'hotel le plus haut du monde se situait à Pyongyang grace à ses 105 étages. Hélas l'hotel Ryugyong demeure inachevé et vide de monde puisque les travaux ont été stoppés en 1992, quand le pays est entré en crise après la chute de l'Union soviétique. Considéré aujoud'hui comme irréparable, l'hotel a couté 750 millions de dollars soit 2% du PIB du pays..
