North Korean restaurants springing up around Asia to raise money for regime

At precisely 7.30 p.m., the waitresses put down their trays and start to perform. Wearing traditional Korean Choson-ot dresses in bright colours, they dance to a curious mix of western pop covers and North Korean national songs.
