wow, it's almost like nothing has changed in the DPRK outside pyongyang.

Trent, what are you even talking about? Why argue just for the sake of argument? These are pictures of South Korea.

What I see in these pictures is the difficulties the Korean people in the two separate states would have to face (note how many of the brick buildings are hollow, bombed out shells needing repair or demolition). That the DPRK suffered from more bombing than the entire Pacific Theater in WW2 and not only survived, but rebuilt faster and more effectively than the south is to me a testament to the superiority of socialism and the effectiveness of the KWP's leadership.
