Said to be the most secretive and insulated country in the world, North Korea does not open its borders to tourists unless they are accompanied by a government guide, an arrangement that ensures their every move can be monitored. Room 39, also known as Bureau 39, is a secret government organization located within a secret government building in the most secretive country in the world. The fact that we even know about its existence seems miraculous. Rumored to be located in Pyongyang within the ruling Worker’s Party building, Room 39 is close to Kim Jong-Un’s personal residence. Within Room 39, it is said, representatives of supreme leader Kim Jong-Un’s government administrate over illegal activities including drug smuggling, arms dealing and money laundering in order to increase the personal piggy bank of Kim Jong-Un and develop North Korea’s nuclear weapon program. Room 39 is thought to have more than 20 bank accounts located in Switzerland and China, all of which are used for illegal dealings that are thought to bring in between $500 million and $1 billion into North Korea per year.
