The so-called miracle drug consists of ginseng grown from fertilizer and a mix of other ingredients. The North Korean dictator is probably just bluffing, but still this makes for an interesting announcement.

A friend said: "I *HIGHLY* recommend watching this, preferably all three parts of it. This was a video done by a dutch filmmaker about a day in the life of some typical North Koreans. One of the more interesting things about this film is that it was scrutinized by Kim Jung Il and his henchmen, and they approved of it, because to them it showed the greatness of N. Korea. To just about anyone else however, it seems chilling... This film is not narrated, but it needs no narration for you to quickly realize that North Korea is definitely not normal."

There's many interesting facts in this article about North Korea that most may not even know about. Such as how North Korea has a Space Program, and how North Korean teachers in the 1990's needed to be able to play an accordion and pass an accordion test before getting a teaching certificate. Also, North Korea is a leading manufacturer of Crystal Meth, however in North Korea, methamphetamine use is illegal.

This documentary is very informative; it explores a trip made by the National Geographic team to North Korea, a hidden world. This documentary follows an eye surgeon, Dr. Sanduk Ruit, along with the host, posing as an medical correspondent, Lisa Ling, performing about 1,000 eye surgeries in a matter of ten days. Not only is Dr. Sanduk Ruit performing a large amount of surgeries, but he is also teaching other North Korean eye surgeons on how to perform them. North Korea is unveiled for the brutality it contains and the harsh conditions its daily citizens live in. The people of North Korea do not acknowledge any luxuries and only worship their leader, Kim Jong-Un, and their past leaders. A surprising component of this documentary was towards the end, *SPOILER* when Dr. Sanduk Ruit was not even thanked for performing the surgeries, instead, all of the citizens thanked their leader for allowing them to have the surgery. National Geographic: Inside North Korea allows viewers to witness the secrets of North Korea.
