North Korea is not a capitalist country, so the number of people who’ve actually done business there is quite small. Among them is Patrick Soh, who helped bring fast food to Pyongyang back in 2009, and Geoffrey See, who started Choson Exchange, a group that brings business professionals into North Korea to teach people there how to run businesses.

Why is the Geoffrey guy subtitled? He speaks English perfectly fine. No need for that…

Iris Park says:

That is true. Even with charities I work with for North Korea. It is done through connections. How one individual trust another individual. It has nothing to do with the charity itself. charity organization is simply something that a single trusted individual operates, not a group where an individual belong to. to put in another word. North Korea will never trust American government. but with enough convincing and through enough connection, they may trust trump. but this is independent of the fact that he is president of the US.

Thant Zaw Win says:

Vice is being really biased on the side of American media. Trying to push its own agenda. And not focus on how North Korea is improving in its own way. Sure it has human rights abuses, sure its very militaristic, but they are trying to reach out and improve. And thats a good thing.

North Korea didn’t want KFC or Mc Donald’s cause its American I bet the diplomat wanted both! But if he chosen them he and his family would be killed.

Barry A. says:

I hate how the orange mobster-in-chief gets credit in every sentence. Instead, he should be sentenced for laundering Russian mob, aka Putin's, money.
