SEOUL, Dec.24 (Korea Bizwire) – A video clip of a pizzeria in North Korea taken by a Singaporean photographer is attracting the attention of internet users.
Aram Pan from Singapore uploaded a seven-minute video clip called Ryung Song Pizza Restaurant to Youtube.
The video contains footage of him and his colleagues going to the pizzeria called Ryung Song. The timing of their visit was not revealed.
In the video, the visitors get in a taxi, pass the Geumrung 1 tunnel, and arrive at the Future Scientist Street.
After wandering the streets for over 20 minutes to find the pizzeria, Pan and his colleagues finally find it.
The restaurant is large and clean, but empty. The menu had 14 different types of pizza and 6 different types of pasta on offer. The pizza prices ranged from 300 to 800 won (40 to 110 South Korean won), and spaghetti prices ranged from 300 to 500 won.
Pan and his colleagues ordered a Margherita pizza and a Capricciosa pizza. Vietnamese chili sauce was offered.
While they were eating, the kitchen staff stood in front of a karaoke machine and sang ‘Bangabsumnida’ (Nice to meet you), a well-known North Korean song.
Pan commented that he visited the pizzeria because he was sick of going to the same shabu-shabu restaurant every time he visited North Korea.
Through his Facebook account, homepage and Youtube, Pan continues to upload video clips of his travels to North Korea. The pizzeria video is drawing attention from the public, recording over 18,000 views.
