    Hi,
    your list is pretty impressive, I started something similar about 2 and a half years ago at my-korea.info (don’t worry, I’m not a DPRK supporter or anything like that, I just wanted to make my website look stylish, see the disclaimer for details), haven’t been updating it properly for the last couple months, though, so mostly the .kp site links are not working anymore.

    Here are some suggestions for your list:

    [sorry, I had to cut these out and move them to a separate page, since your WordPress didn't let me post this many links in a comment, go to http://my-korea.info/upload/linksuggestions.html to see them]

    I’d also love to make some contributions to your website, that’s a great job you’re doing here and for the last few years I’ve collected some interesting DPRK tech-related materials that you might like. Also make sure you check out my YouTube channel.

    Cheers!

    I just wanted to point out that the Korean Friendship Association (KFA) has got a few subsections with their own independent websites, like KFA USA, KFA Italy and KFA Chile, you can find the links to those sites in the main KFA page mentioned here.

    An Hong Kong based site with selling rights for North Korean movies, tv drama, animation and songs. http://kmvc5.com/
    All stuff can be bought for few dollars and directly dowloaded on your pc.
    I’ve tried it and it’s well done… only the official discount “buy 1, take 5″ doesn’t go well. You’ve to be fast dowloading the other four videos you want or in few minutes you loose the discount.

    I hope some peaceful resolve can come out of North Korea. I hope the hermit kingdom can open up to the world and there can be a reunification of Korea.

    There is still an opportunity for Kim Jong Un to be a hero. And, that would happen if he were to open up all of the gulags and other prisons, start major economic reforms, stop their nuclear weapons program, and open up the nation to the internet: http://tinyurl.com/2ukjml
