The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, abbreviated to DPRK, and commonly referred to as North Korea, is a socialist country located in the northern half of the Korean Peninsula. DPRK covers an area of 122,762 square kilometers and it shares land borders with China and Russia to the north, and borders South Korea along the Military Demarcation Line. To its west is the Yellow Sea, and to its east lies Japan across the Sea of Japan.

Though DPRK is a neighboring country of China, it remains very mysterious and many people are willing to explore this country.
