This video is from https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/korea-and-china 'Lips and Teeth: Korea and China in Modern Times' is a free online course by Yonsei University available on FutureLearn.com In this video, lead educator John Delury examines North Korea and wonders why it isn't following the 'China model' of development - i.e. opening itself up, reforming its economy and bringing in foreign investment, while at the same time maintaining tight political controls and keeping a one party communist authoritarianism state. However, some experts, including some in China, claim this is exactly what North Korea is doing. John explains the reasons behind why this might be the case.
