Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea The Aquariums of Pyongyang: Ten Years in the North Korean Gulag The Two Koreas: A Contemporary History Escape from Camp 14: One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West - Jan 2014
Lonely Planet Korea; The Two Koreas by Don Oberdorfer; Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick; And So Flows History by Hahn Moo-Sook. Once you arrive in Korea, I recommend searching for a title such as "Our Country, Our Culture: How to Explain it in English."It's sort of interesting to read from the Korean point of view. - Jan 2011
