Considering that I've avoided flag-waving, cap-wearing group tours in all my travels I don't know why anyone would be interested in going on a government sanctioned and minder led tour of a country.
I'm curious as well. Been waiting since stone age to get there and explore!

I think North Korea's best bet would be to reconnect with South Korea - it would certainly boost their economy, but that government won't give up easily. Maybe we're seeing another Cuba or Myanmar in N. Korea - it will be a while before they open a Club Med Pyongyang! I just can't figure who flies on Air Koryo's flights to Bangkok (do Thai's vacation in N. Korea???)
I went to North Korea in April 2012... it's like time travel.
It's an expensive tour (as you're constantly baby-sat, etc.), but worth it if you're interested in DPRK.
