If I make one small mistake in North Korea, will I get shot?

As mentioned before, tourists are exempt from harsh laws which are applied to North Korean civilians. Tourists will certainly not get shot for one small mistake. If you take a picture of a military checkpoint or a soldier, you will be kindly requested to delete the picture. This even happens if you take many “illegal” pictures. Again, this only goes for tourists. Taking pictures of military checkpoints is never a good idea, not even in other countries.
