“This is the real North Korea, this is the real movie,” he said of his film, which also covers his friendship Mr Kim.

“To see a guy like that, this 5-foot-2 or 5-foot-1 guy, have that much power, in a country like that, and see people get emotional, crying, 20,000 of them clapping, it was so surreal. It blew my mind,” he said.

“People ask, ‘Why would you do that? Why would you go sit next to him. He’s a bad guy,'” he said. “To me, I was so surprised. He treated me very, very nicely, like one of the family, you know. And I’m not a hater. I don’t care what you do in the world. If you treat me nice, I’m good. And one thing people don’t’ understand, until you go to North Korea and actually see it, it’s a whole different story.”

Rodman said he would like to take Rogen to North Korea

“I would have liked to have said to [Rogen], ‘Let’s go to North Korea and actually see it. See what’s really going on. Then make your movie,'” Rodman told The Hollywood Reporter.
