Will North Korea ever open up? Not if China has a say.
And China does have a say. A big say. China is North Koreas best friend in the world a friendship that was cemented with blood when Chairman Mao sent hundreds of thousands of soldiers to their deaths in North Korea in 1950.
Back then it was all about showing the world that a young Peoples Republic of China could throw her weight around in Asia. It was also about doing the bidding of Stalin the man who created the Korean war and played his two biggest opponents, America and China, off each other brilliantly. It wasnt until Stalins death in 1953 that an armistice could finally be signed which brought the hostilities -but not the war- to an end.
Now, almost 60 years later,after the fall of the Soviet Union and the emergence of China as Asias most powerful nation, Chinas support for North Korea has seemingly never wavered not publicly at least. Unfortunately, it seems that China has done very little to encourage its little Communist neighbor to follow her lead and open up to development and modernization.

About a week after they all starve to death.
The DPRK is merely Red China’s sock puppet, whose purpose is to take its enemies’ eyes off China once in a while. If Beijing says “don’t open up”, they don’t open up. Red China’s only purpose in “opening up its markets” is to enrich itself to the point of being able to spread communism all over the planet.
I don’t the Chinese leaders are even communist anymore.
They just want to get as wealthy as possible.
There’s nothing there to see. Why would anyone want to go there?
So do all communists. That’s the real driving force behind communism after all; ultimate wealth for the Party.
The Kims are China’s rabid little lapdogs. China could put them down any time, but they serve China’s purposes quite well as they are.
