    vs
    i think soul is considered a very safe city for crime and violence
    it still has a lot of old fashioned hate toward LGBTQ+ which is part of the Korean old world culture.

    they appear to be very modern, but they are not liberal.

    as far as safe for LGBTQ+ people to travel to, it probably should be listed as take care and act cautiously.


    war ?
    unlikely
    DPRK attacking soul would result in the type of retaliatory strike that would make the attacking of south korea a suicide act.
    There would be nothing left of DPRK leadership, military bases or industrial complexes.
    it would put the country and nation back into a near stone age level mass starvation battle for food among themselves.
    cholera and such like issues would wipe out most high density population centers in a year or 2.
    the country would resort to a small disbanded tribal system where they woudl fight among themselves for small stock piles of food and shelter driving the sciety into a semi feudal civil war

    this would upset china a great deal as it would place high level technology weapons in the hands of terrorist type people on chinas border.
    china would probably act(would be forced to) to prevent that from turning into a threat to their out lying towns and citys to prevent terrorist attacks.

    the only sane question is "what country would try and make north korea commit suicide by attacking south korea ?... and consequently risk being blockaded by all asian and western nations as a tin pot dictatorship and have their usa currency and European banking shut down and taken away from them."?
    the answer to that would be almost none.
    cant think of any but im not informed(i dont read) on such things.

    This has got to be some kind of record. More than 3 years to get a reply to the opening post. But apparently, there is a sudden surge of interest in the topic. Hmm...

    Since Saint has been around the forum fairly recently, the answer to the OP is, Yes, there is good reason to think you will survive the trip.
