Did he apply on the Koryo Tours website?

Do you really want to go there any time soon?

Let's hope they send him a nice "thanks for visiting gift". Dispatched first class, via orbit, to California.

Lol. Nuclear war.

@thegamergeek: He got in contact with Koryo Tours here: http://www.koryogroup.com/ His guide was Chris Grapher.

You can contact Drew on twitter if you're curious about more details. Though, I imagine he would also recommend against visiting there any time soon. The situation in North Korea at the moment is a particularly volatile one.

He landed in China where he was then stowed away in a dud torpedo and slid in under their noses. After three days sliding up the Bukhan river in his scuba gear, he was found in a fast flood place soaking wet, still in his gear.

Luckily, the abstractness of the situation led to the authorities moving him into the least abstract place to see a westerner in scuba gear in North Korea. On a coach.

He failed to complete his top secret mission, but he broke a few hearts along the way.

I don't remember the details. But North Korea (at least used to) allowed an extremely limited amount of foreigners to visit the country every year. I think the number is even as low as 100 or so. But he didn't get to just go out and do whatever. It was a very controlled experience for him. Government officials escorted him everywhere and only showed him the country's best elements. Even if they still allow limited Americans in, probably not a great time to go.
