As someone correctly pointed out in the comments (there are people defending it) it looks like a country where most of its cities and urban environments were destroyed and had to focus on building quickly and functional, they didn't have time or resources to spend on aesthetics.

North Korea is transforming into a new form to increase their power level.

 No.1740224

Probably just the recognition that enough time has passed with such different societies that North and South Korea likely won't ever see eye-to-eye based on a common heritage. The arch itself depicts two Korean women in traditional clothing, again a suggestion that Korea can be united based on its previous history as a unified country and tbqh, that's pretty unlikely now regardless of history as they're just too culturally different now. DPRK has its independence and perhaps that's the more important thing than being united with an American colony and absorbing that kind of society, culture and economy *just* because they *used* to be one people.

I think really the ROK feels the same way.

 No.1740226

No anon, it's because the DPRK are convinced there can be no peaceful unification.

i think a renewed korean war will probably involved the chaebols and the cults of south korea forming a mujahadeen of temporarily aligned interests. north korea would have to be in charge of killing religious zealots and mercenaries alongside state officials. even the presidents of south korea mostly work for organizations like the eight goddess cult so it wouldnt be too surprising to me.

Now that you mention it. I heard a rumor somewhere that most luxury apartments and the like that are sold for ridiculous sums in New York and the like are mostly just traded back and forth between criminal oligarchs as a way to launder money.

So it seems that the whole "build fancy shit just to fool foreigners" is more endemic to imperialist nations.

There was an episode of The Deprogram where they had an Australian guest who had been to the DPRK. He said that on his tour they passed a corn field, and that other Westerners on the tour were claiming that the corn was fake. Because you know, setting up fake corn to fool a few foreigners would definitely be easier than just actually planting corn.

>Pyongyang considers Seoul to be its "most harmful and unchangeable enemy," the leader has said
>Pyongyang must be prepared to seize South Korean territory in the event of an "emergency," North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has said.
>In a speech marking the 76th anniversary of the founding of the North Korean Army on Friday, Kim praised the military for "firmly protecting the sovereignty and dignity of the country" from "imperialist military threats, blackmail, and the risk of war."
>[Kim] said his country has "summarized the history of our people's division and confrontation and defined [South] Korean puppets as the most harmful and unchangeable enemy" of Pyongyang.
>Against this backdrop, Kim stated that in the event of an "emergency," North Korean policymakers had "made a national decision to occupy and pacify [South Korean] territory."
>Last month, Kim also called on the national parliament to label South Korea the "number one hostile country."
[…]
>Citing US officials, the New York Times reported in January that Washington is worried that North Korea could "take some form of lethal military action" against Seoul. The paper's sources, however, doubted that Pyongyang would risk anything resembling a full-scale attack.

Currently, I read a Facebook story from someone who just came back from traveling in North Korea, and found out that North Korea is aware of the outside world through smuggled media from South Korea. But the reason mass fleeing never happened is that they are aware that they won't fit in the new hyper-capitalistic, hyper-competitive society, especially aged people.

Didn't the DPRK start considering the ROK to be a foreign adversary? All this shows is that they waited for DPRK before recognizing the ROK.
