North Korea holds 70th anniversary parade, without ICBMs

North Korea holds a huge military parade and mass rally in Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung square to mark the seventieth anniversary of its founding on 9 September 1948. The nation refrained from displaying the intercontinental ballistic missiles that have seen it hit with sanctions.

Lessons in loyalty at North Korea’s top school

Originally set up by the North Korea’s founder Kim Il Sung to educate the orphans of those killed in the fight against Japanese colonial rule, Mangyongdae Revolutionary School for boys has evolved to become the country’s top school, and one of the institutions that knits the ruling elite together.

A look at Kim Il Sung’s old holiday home

Nestled on a cliff, just a few kilometres from the eastern end of the Demilitarized Zone that divides the Korean peninsula, stands a small stone villa.

The Failed Assassination of Kim Jong-il (Extra Scene from ‘Propaganda Over Pyongyang’)

Watch the full documentary: http://bit.ly/1CsatdF

North and South Korea are, both legally and philosophically, in a state of war. While the guns may be silent, the conflict between the two countries has now become one of propaganda.

With the assistance of the Human Rights Foundation, North Korean defectors now in South Korea have been launching hydrogen-filled balloons across the 38th parallel — carrying both money and propaganda. In late 2014, a balloon launch sparked a brief exchange of gunfire between North and South Korean soldiers, and even more recently, Pyongyang has promised that hellfire will rain on South Korea if any copies of the controversial Hollywood comedy The Interview make it across the border.

VICE News traveled to Seoul to meet frontline soldiers in this information war — and to attend a clandestine launch of propaganda balloons into the Hermit Kingdom.

In this extra scene, VICE News correspondent Michael Moynihan speaks with a former lieutenant of the North Korean People’s Army about a failed assassination attempt on Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il.
