I am surprised that someone would be allowed to shoot any video footage while visiting North Korea. On the other hand, perhaps allowing him to post a video about the airport was strategic. “See, how could a country with a fantastic airport like this be half bad?”
I think Brian hit it on the head. It is all about image. He is a consumer of today’s tech where all that matters is “show”. Meanwhile, his country languishes. That said, the airport did pick up a bit for their two flights that day!
