North Korea and South Korea
Or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the Republic of Korea

Wait a second, North Korea is also called the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea? Hahahaha that’s a good one.

Anyway... Two East Asian countries on the Korean Peninsula that are opposite in so many ways. And yet, not that long ago, relatively speaking, they were just one country. Korea.

Yeah this one’s gonna be lopsided, folks. I’ll start by showing you this, which many of you have probably seen before. One picture sums up so much, doesn’t it. Most already know South Koreans enjoy a much higher standard of living and much more freedoms, but in this video, let’s dig a bit deeper.

That said, since North Korea is such a secretive country, there’s a lot we don’t know about it. But it’s difficult for North Korea to hide the fact that South Korea is doing so much better than it, based on a variety of factors.
