Seriously speaking, Pyongyang is a quite nice place to visit, although there are certain limitations of freedom of activities for travellers.
There is no Rugby in the DPR Korea. Most popular sports are Soccer and Boxing.
Taekwondo is a Korean-origin martial arts, and there are 2 codes in Taekwondo like Rugby.
There are ITF (International Taekwon-Do Federation) and WTF (World Taekwondo Federation). WTF is an Olympic sport while ITF is not.
In the ROK (Republic of Korea), both codes are practiced, but in the DPR Korea only ITF exists.

And the danger of radioactivity is no joke. You should avoid eastern part of Japan, particularly areas close to Fukushima. You should not bring children, vulnerable to radioactivity.

France has 60 nuclear plant, by far a worldwide record per habitant,

The RWC is going to be in Japan and ALL the teams who qualify will be more than happy to be there.

They'd better be better than England's giants at this RWC.

To be honest, I hate Japan. But the World Cup is the matter of safety. Please stand up against 2019 Japan.

You are ridiculous and this thread is a joke. I want Japan to host the World Cup - I don't hate any country incidentally - I want more countries to further their rugby playing, starting with Japan.

This is just a ploy by the Japanese government to get Sige to spread this propaganda. The actual reason is that the radiation is making rugby players bigger, faster, stronger and more skillful, and they don't want the Tier 1 countries to get their players near that radiation to make them even better...

And I actually am planning to stay there, but I did not found out how to live there for 4-6 weeks without ending knee-deep in depth :D

Anyone that's thinking about going to the RWC in Japan - DO IT. Just come back from two weeks there recently and it is by some distance the best country I've ever been fortunate enough to visit. Didn't catch any rugby through sadly. Really, really hope I can visit during the RWC for a couple matches - fingers crossed. Honestly would emigrate to Tokyo in a heartbeat if I found the right job.
