Thanks for sharing this.

Edit: Some people in the comments are saying it's prerecorded.

CNN's Will Ripley was streaming from North Korea on Facebook recently. He was allowed to, though, not sure about this guy.

Not only is his tourism supporting literal slavedrivers and death camps, but it's not even live.

Seems like a big risk to take for footage that has already been released through numerous documentaries by now, so far this was just the same guided NK vacation footage other people have been allowed to record and release for several years now.

Aren't you allowed to film there? I know a channel with regular uploads. Not sure about live streaming.

Maybe. I'm not sure about livestreaming to YouTube.

Someone in the stream mentioned it was during new years, so when does NK celebrate NY? Though I only saw when they were on the roof looking at the buildings and everything looked grey and brown. How would North Korea even look like they were celebrating New Years? Someone must have mentioned it in the video.

The elevator mirror seem like he had the camera in his hat. It looked well disguised.

You are allowed to film there, but not livestream. How he managed to livestream in an elevator going down several stories is what makes me doubt this. In the chat peoplesaid they were talking about New Years, as if it were a recent or upcoming thing, so there's that as well, but I don't have sound to verify.

He said that he saw New Years fireworks yesterday.

Google says NH's New Year is Feb 16, so yeah, this is probably bullshit.

Foreign visitors are allowed to have internet access though I don't imagine it'd be fast enough to livestream video.

I think they're also starting to allow ordinary citizens to have smartphones and internet, though heavily restricted, but I'm not certain.

From what I recall, North Korea actually has their own internal janky ass internet.

Yeah there is no internet in Yanggako Hotel. You can buy an local SIM card, but that doesn't get you anywhere but calls mostly.

And locals can only access Koryonet or whatever its called
