Take Jeong Kwang-il, a former political prisoner who escaped to South Korea and now smuggles radios, thumb drives and DVDs posing as a mushroom importer


Well, he used to, anyways until the Nork government somehow learned what his name was and how he gets shiat into the country. He now mostly spends his days as a  pile of dog crap.

Well, at least pop culture is proving good for something.

I wouldn't call a mission "secret" anymore after an article about it and the perpetrators was lit green on fark

I think the smugglers are likely to get lit up and emit a wider range on the visible spectrum than that just for the color green.

Hey, I just have a random unrelated question, and I wonder if any farkers can educate me. Do the any of the South Korean cities near the DMZ have emergency guidelines for the Best Koreans launching whatever nasties they have on the line at them? You know, like pamphlets advising people what to do in an air raid, or telling people to pack a workplace emergency kit. How would you increase your chances of surviving an air raid, especially in a skyscraper? I'd imagine you'd try to find an interior room, or a stairwell. I mean, it wouldn't protect you from a direct hit on your building, but you'd get some cover from flying chunks of rubble. Is any of that provided?

Got to be something of a moral dilemma here.  On the one hand, getting information into that data black hole is overall a good thing, but on the other hand, this stuff is likely getting people killed.

In the south, there's only one village actually in the DMZ. It's called "Daeseong-dong" and I believe it's actually populated unlike it's deserted potemkin partner on the north side. They're always under guard when at home or in the fields and are pretty much raised with the knowledge of what to do if an attack starts.

As for places close by, it's pretty much taught just like "duck and cover" was back during the cold war. Schools cover it, etc. I don't know what the SOP is for visitors and foreigners though.

/that's the only one I would imagine has any North Korean destabilizing message in it
//luckily it was so bad, they rebooted with Craig and have had two of the best in the franchise since

As long as no one sends over the remake of "Red Dawn". They might get ideas.

I watched that last night. Kind of depressing that some parts of North Korea are as bad off as the United States.

I was stationed in S Korea for 3 years so here is what I know.  Toward the DMZ there are not many large towns, it's mostly small farming villages.  There are huge bridge looking things called rock drops, because in the event of an invasion, they can blow them up and the structure drops onto the road, blocking it.  The people who live close to the DMZ do so with the knowledge of the dangers, including that of unmarked mine fields and unexploded ordinance.  Quite a few of the bunkers from the Korean war are left in that area so I guess that in the event of a bombing raid they could take cover there.  Pretty much the entire northern area of South Korea grows up doing drills for attacks and there are plenty of bomb shelters in the city by way of the subways and basement areas.  Like most big cities, they go down 2 or 3 stories.  The main concern that we had was that the initial attack would be a lot of artillery and rockets, with a lot of them being chemical munitions.  Some people have gas masks, but not all.  Basically from what I understand, if the Norks invaded, we'd all fall back to the south and let the air power from in country and Japan try to hold them off until the rest of the cavalry arrived, probably units pulled from the middle east because they are already combat ready.  Since South Korean citizens don't have guns, they would essentially be at the mercy of advancing units, which there would be none.
