  • Well hopefully this video isn't as prophetic as my last one on Afghanistan was. Anyway, if you enjoyed this video, please consider checking out the 19 minute long companion video I created about the Korean Conflict since the end of the Cold War that I uploaded to Nebula. It's full of detail covering every battle/skirmish fought between North Korea and the outside world since 1990 and it's part of my Modern Conflicts series, which now has 6 full length episodes all on Nebula, and the best way to get access to all of that is by signing up for the CuriosityStream/Nebula bundle deal for less than $15 a year with this link: curiositystream.com/?coupon=reallifelore Thank you so much for watching and reading, and let me know what episode you'd like to see next! Cheers

    • I hope you don’t get demanatized

    • Ummmmmmmmmmmmmm

    • You know the USA has the highest prison population in the world! Slave labour is part of the prison system! Let's not talk about poverty in the USA!

    • Why don't we just nuke the capital of North Korea and put little Kim out of business. We could literally put their regime in the ground in a matter of seconds.

    • Can’t wait to see you proved wrong

  • Thank god I didn't born there

  • Just wondering why can't they just go to Hong Kong or Macau instead? Or probably Taiwan and the Philippines? Hmm

  • Why North Korea Is The Hardest Country To Escape Well Because They Have Squid Guard Who Will Always Protect North Korea And Green Light, Red Light, Doll😘💅🏻

  • Why Am I even watching this delusional guy's stupid propaganda hatred?? My friend, you need to find something better to for your life. I remembered, this is exactly what the West used to portray Africa in the past......🤮🤢🤮

  • You'd think the south korean government would be more proactive in getting north koreans home. How can a massively rich nation like that just leave it all to chance, to missionary groups, to good meaning strangers, rather than investing billions of dollars per year?

    • "We've tried nothing and we're all out of ideas!"

  • Duh just get a bathtub or something, push it into the water from a beach, row yourself a few miles

  • Why don’t we team w Russia and drop some tsars on ‘em

  • how can China & Russia be so utterly sadistic to deport a desperate refugee back to imminent death? politics is gross

  • North Korea is the country where people that suicide respawn

  • I wish all of the other parts of the world declare war on north korea and win 🥇

  • This is all lies lol

  • Bruh I'm scared to check out her yt channel

  • AAll lies, Why would we want to get out? We are the best country in the world, everyone else is just enslaved and are savages Long live kim jong un the supreme leader

  • If I was a president to any neighbouring country of North Korea, I would declare war, to the point where I would torture everyone who wanted to help the president. And put the president in a concentration camp and do what he did to all those people. Give him a taste of my own medicine

  • the president or north korea punching the air right now

  • NK's DO NOT TRY THIS HOME 😌

  • This Should Be A Mission in GTA V

  • there's a video about 4:39 on youtube named " We Interviewed A Former Elite North Korean Spy | Stay Curious #36 " by Asian Boss it's literaly him he talks about the story way deeper and it's definetly worth watching! i just wish that RealLifeLore credited the video :9

  • Nauseating that other countries would deny asylum to refugees escaping well-known dictatorships. I can't imagine looking someone in the eyes in that situation and telling them "no."

  • I don't know about Korea. but many things that media says about Afghanistan and Iran is 90% wrong. you can't find such a peace in any place in the world

  • Joel from the last of us could do it

  • at times I feel like I dislike my country but after watching this I am very grateful 🙏🏽 to be an American

  • I live far far away but still that's scary

  • Anyone wants free etherium

  • bro no one is going to pay money for curiosity

  • Why tf that girl went to China for a honey moon?

  • Hey why is there no Philippines it's eastern Asia too and Filipinos are friendly

  • kim jong un, taken notes

  • This message was approved by the us government

  • This would be a amazing movie

  • I heard of someone who escaped but then got eaten by an alligator because she got her period

  • What if someone that is not from North Korea and they go there for vacation, are they let out after their vacation? Or do the police there keep them there till their visa expires?

    • People do visit North Korea for vacation

  • Great work 👍

  • Wow this video made me sad. I feel so bad for those in North Korea.. how could a human treat another so horribly?😢💔

  • My man your gonna get nuked for posting this video, Kim Jong un doesn’t want you to let people know their flaws

  • Ass a American I feel disgust about this country

  • I am grateful I don’t live anywhere near North Korea. It’s Evil in my opinion and people trapped there can’t do much.

  • 6:32 it’s not ‘Sea of Japan’, also need to mention ‘East Sea’.

  • Even James Bond failed to escape from North Korea.

  • Honestly respect to these people

  • There is a mountain in north Korea..... Made of dead children I feel so bad for them Also i live in south korea and i hate it that there are two Koreas Since we were all a family but now because of the north Korean president(?) we are now enemies Edit: in North korea the president is known as a god people also think that the president learned all the language when he was 3 years old

  • I want to read a comment starting from- ''As a North Korean citizen I can confirm that... . " 🙂

  • It’s disgusting any country would deport them back to North Korea. If North Korea didn’t have nuclear or chemical weapons then we should fight them and give North Korea back to South Korea. It’s crazy that a place like that exists. In America you can walk up the street at midnight, get pulled over by a cop, tell the cop to fuck off and they cant do anything about it but in Korea they would probably kill u. So sad all the people suffering there.

  • We cant escape o

  • never going to north korea...

  • This is the worst heck

  • The amount of American propagandas in this video is insane

    • @Thanos do you know what genocide means or are you just typing things without thinking? Typical, when people have no logic, they think calling people incel is a valid argument 😂

    • @James H what was the bay of pigs invasion about? You killed our freedom fighter Ernesto Guevara. You tried to kill our president Fidel Castro every time but failed. Peak incel energy.

    • @Thanos America committed genocide in Cuba? Sure buddy, whatever you want to believe. We have freedom of speech in America so continue saying whatever you want to believe. You’re currently using an American platform after all.

    • @James H Cuba. I hope I don't need to explain why I hate America.

    • @Thanos do you live in Taiwan or Brazil? I’m pretty sure you’re being overdramatic with wild claims of American genocide 🤪

  • Ug I bet that these poor North Koreans don't even know these facts. Or have any maps. I cant imagine what the poor babies have to live like esp. in camps.

  • What if you visit the country

  • 0:39 “the soldiers be like: TIME TO KILL SOME BIACTHES

  • ✔ my 🎥

  • The Video was kopiet bei sipmlicismus

  • Kim Jong-Un watching this 👁👄👁

  • I think I didn’t hear this correct but I heard a father and his son was separated. We know what happened to the fatter but what about the son?

  • India map is wrong you not shown India's jammu and kashmir over there

  • People who is from 🇰🇵 North Korea will watch this in their language will probably try to escape.

  • Latinoamericans: *pathetic.*

  • couldn't you just take a plane/helicopter across the south-north Korean border? (if you could even get access to one)

    • @Brian Howard which is why I said (if you could even get access to one)

    • What are you playing GTA? Lmfao most people in north korea don't even have access to their own cars

  • the north korea dictator or president is just relaxing in luxury, whilst the north korean ppl are literally living in hell? wtf is wrong w him

  • Sir your India's map is Wrong Please fix it.

  • This is so fkn sick.

  • If you saw the Korean flag the top is red and the bottom is blue, red represents North Korea but yes North Korea is the worst you only can leave when you are not born there you have to take a travel bus to leave if you were not born there and they check your phone if you have any photos of North Korea if you do you will get punished. At least I was born in California 😌but I am Korean, South Korean

  • This is why I hate North Korea

  • This information is in stark contrast to the information given by an actual North Korean Escapee who worked in the upper echelons of the intelligence service there. May want to fact check, then again this is youtube. Your shameless attempts to get people over to a new platform are pretty ham fisted as well, the secret information you claim to share there that will be censored here, is everywhere.

  • If you wanna hear more about North Korea watch/listen to the joe rogan podcast episode 235 with Yeonmi Park

  • The fact that it was a Canadian embassy was not surprising

  • 6,890,577

  • i wish more people see this , people need to learn more , and then there may be change

  • Trolge meme:nuke the north Korea

  • This ruling family will rot in hell.

    • They are loved by the North Korean citizens though

  • Ppl need to understand T and how to be grateful Bc these poor ppl in North Korea is suffering

  • this needs to be seen more

  • The guy just said that if you escape, your family is held in captive and tortured and murdered. How did the guy and his father escape if they had family members who escaped before them?? How did that guy have 2 sisters who escaped sending him money?

    • The family members that escaped before them were probably not identified as they’d escaped successfully. As for the money, they probably sent it undercover. I can’t be certain though.

  • So.. East Sea.

  • People have also escaped by being foreign exchange students in south korea or even the U.S. i believe and not going back.

  • that is mean

  • Thank god I’m moving to South Korea. Not North

  • Two words: literal hell.

  • Muda muda

  • North Korea is literally a hell hole of a country.

    • @Thanos would a slave know freedom unless it was handed to them ? in case of the people wanting to return i believe it has something to do with family (don would be proud) or being able to speak your native language to people like you and nothing to do with the country itself

    • @MaOmega the problem is not all North Korean citizens believe North Korea is bad. Most of them escaped due to economic reasons, not political reasons. Infact, a lot of them eventually wish to go back to North Korea. A lot of defectors also take opposite approach and start selling anti North Korean propagandas. We can never tell which one is correct.

    • @MaOmega I agree, definitely more! I know the UK hasn’t got it all figured out & has its major flaws, but I’m fortunate I was born and raised here.

    • @Thanos i'm not familiar about iraq. but the refugees that escaped north korea are sharing their story. and i LIVE in iran , so if i can trust anyone , it would be me , and i'm pretty sure iran is a SH*** place that kills whoever disagrees with them

    • @MaOmega because everything said against Iraq have been proven fake. These lies were said about Vietnam, Cuba, Nicaragua, Chile, Iran as well. How are we sure the allegations against North Korea isn't fake?

  • How was squid game was filmed?

  • My Idea If I Was There I Would Have Made A Small Boat And Went To China But I Would Have Used A Secret Tunnel And Would Have Upgraded My Small Boat And Made It More Modern And Bigger

  • Basically me right now and all other countries trying to pull me out of America the POS.

  • There actually nine I tried the 9th way and now I’m in heaven

  • too bad they cant see this

  • I feel bad for anyone born into that prison of a country.

  • Let us remember that any extremist is horrible. And this example: A communist regime.

    • Enlightened centrism at it's best

  • They demonetize videos like this because it literally goes against their beliefs, like North Korea would do. Sad that people really don't see our media will put out what they want us to see.

    • @• nobody forced you to leave a reply

    • CS-tv is a private company. They can do whatever they want on their platform. Nobody is forced to use it. What a stupid comparison 🤣

  • North Korea watching this 👀👀

    • "write that down , write that down"

  • Its so sad but if they stop making kids the future of nk will not be bad for then

  • The fact Kim Jong Un is just allowed to rule a country like this is sad in itself. He should be treated like a threat to humanity.

    • He isn't a bad guy though. He is actually improving his country.

  • People here who bitch about their lattes, do not understand how EASY they have it. Even people in poverty have it way better. These defectors would rather die than go back. They will take years just to get to a safe place.

    • Most North Korean defectors actually go back to North Korea or actually want to go back

  • The people who went back to the border kinda weirded me out, like you were safe, you *were*

  • My respect for China and Russia about helping those who escape North Korea 📉📉📉

  • I’ve heard of the mother and daughters story and there is even a book! Btw this video was recommended on my home page, so maybe it’s not as censored

  • man! How did these people manage to travel in those harsh terrains, and the distance you show in these maps are just too damn enormous even Bear Grylls can't do this

  • I Think The Best Way Is To Just Assassinate The NK Guards
