    It is great. Even on a forum about style--we can just disregard the fact that if you sit at Seohyun station or Apgujung everyone is styling, the only slops are American ESL teachers. Same in China. It is still backwards there but if you go to Shanghai it is in some sense more stylish than Milan. The only people buying fake LV at open markets are western women. Girls from Shanghai would never be caught carrying or wearing fakes (their dads own the factories that make that crap and send it over here). Just sayin'
    Did you guys expect anything less from styleforum? This place is chock full of snarky douchebags. You know when a race-bait question comes up, the wolves (or chihuahuas?) are gonna jump on it.

    SF loves snarky remarks , irony and self-loathing...

    I think the jokes have been made in good jest...

    Of course, it is more probable that you are confusing not buying fake LV bags with never wanting to be caught buying fake LV bags.

    Great photos - are they yours? That's the Ryugyong Hotel - stood vacant for years, rotting - interesting story about it here. Apparenty being redeveloped now with some new investment. Also - with regards to the metro - it's widely believed that the tube only runs from the main station to the next stop. The rest of the lines remain in disrepair and the people you see travelling on the trains are locals employed simply to do that - so it looks busy to the tourist... This is the official site which is pretty interesting. [​IMG]

    Great pictures...

    Thank you for sharing with us your travel experiences...

    North Korea is a fascinating country mostly because of its shortcomnings...

    There are some really interesting documentary on North Korea on Netflix, you guys might find them interesting. Too lazy to look for the name, search it. Let me know if you can't find it.

    It's called A State of Mind. Highly recommended.
