  • This is a seriously impressive monument. From a distance it looks ‘Wow!’ But up close it’s even more awesome. It’s also a good view from the monument of the surrounding area. Definitely worth a 10 min...  more »
  • This marvellous monument to the foundation of the Korean Workers Party stands in front of red apartment blocks which represent a rippling red flag.  more »
  • Its ok but somehow doesn't have the magnificence of some of the other monuments in Pyongyang.. Even the local guide was struggling a little to enthuse about it as she went through her well rehearsed s...  more »

  • Got chased by some guards whilst the Benny Hill music played. Before this I read a tale on how the glorious leader once beat the sun in a staring competition before being the only person to count to infinity.... Twice! When the chase by the guards had stopped I'd found out the much improved metro system managed to whisk my wife and kids to a hard labour camp. Silver linings.......
  • Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb In the shape of an "L" on her forehead Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running Didn't make sense not to live for fun Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb So much to do, so much to see So what's wrong with taking the back streets? You'll never know if you don't go You'll never shine if you don't glow Hey now, you're an all-star, get your game on, go play Hey now, you're a rock star, get the show on, get paid And all that glitters is gold Only shooting stars break the mold
  • I loved South Korea so much I had to visit North Korea, turns out, saying Moon Jae-In is illegal in North Korea and when I was talking about South Korea's leader Kim Jong Un arrested me, when on my way to the death camp Kim put me in the clutches of a female prison guard. When we got to the death camp she stripped me completely naked and started beating me with a bamboo stick. I was then given a prison outfit and sentenced to 15 years hard labor and if at any point I refused I would be executed. I then escaped 3 days later and the dorn agency rescued me, I now live in a beautiful house in Seoul, South Korea
  • I really love the ideals of North Korean workers so i would give this 5 stars but I slightly disapprove of the way they executed my family for tacking a picture of the supreme leader, btw can we ship kim jong un some supreme, well about to be executed, but enjoyed the ideals of the worker!
  • I almost got killed by poop. In my tour of North Korea, I came across this monument. I was told about the symbolism of the hammer, sickle, and brush when I decided to start talking. I said that brushes belong to artists, not intellectuals as they said it. The glorious leader asked what I meant and then I showed them my own painting that I drew. It was a painting of the glorious leader and Trump eating piles of poo that were disguised as chocolate. I was detained and they gave me chocolate for lunch. The chocolate looked like poo so I said that out of generosity, I would give the "chocolate" to a lucky guard. The guards fell for it and ... one of the guards was poisoned. Ha. Get rekt.
