Weary North Koreans relax with a cold one

Putting on a major political event can be pretty exhausting in North Korea. Ahead of the ongoing congress of the ruling Workers' Party, North Koreans were called upon to put in massive overtime to boost production and show their devotion to leader Kim Jong Un in a 70-day "loyalty campaign." So how does a tired North Korean unwind? Beer. Kim Yon Hui, 29, a server at a beer bar on Pyongyang's new Scientists' Street high-rise area, said she believes that by serving beer she is actually serving the leader. "I like seeing them happy and want to continue to serve them so they can be happy, fulfilling the will of our leader." — Associated Press
