Young Soldier Carrying Some Wood Logs
The North Korean army is said to be one of the most important in the world. But if you travel there, you’ll often see soldiers doing menial tasks like helping farmers.
This one, of course, is a no-no picture that wouldn’t in normal circumstances and under normal supervision be allowed to take, as it tarnishes the look of the prestigious and powerful North Korean army. In this case, though, the photographer got lucky and took this one when his supervisor wasn’t looking.

The guy who took this picture said the following: “Pyongyang’s subway system is the deepest in the world as it doubles as a bomb shelter. Someone saw me taking this picture and told me to delete it since it included the tunnel.”
From that, we could infer that the tunnel isn’t allowed to be photographed because it perhaps leads to one of the shelters and the image could be used as Intel which would jeopardize North Korea. Another more mundane reason could be the fact that they consider the tunnels to be ‘indecorous’.
