In the 'other media' category I can highly recommend 'Pyongyang: A Journey In North Korea' by Guy Delisle[1] which is a graphic novel detailing his few months working in North Korea for a more serious look and into the lives of those who actually live/have lived in North Korea is 'Nothing to Envy' by Barbara Demick[2] which is a detailed, if not somewhat harrowing insight.

I found this graphic novel by a French cartoonist who worked in North Korea to be fascinating:

There is also a very good french comics book : http://www.amazon.com/Pyongyang-Journey-North-Guy-Delisle/dp...

The author describe 3 month of life there.

I knew they did animation (http://www.amazon.com/Pyongyang-Journey-North-Guy-Delisle/dp... is amazing), so that might be a logical next step.
