State media said in a short dispatch that someone named Bae Jun Ho entered North Korea on Nov. 3 as a tourist but was detained because of crimes.

1. Well they'll hold him hostage and try to get something for him

That's their MO. If you go to visit NK you have to be prepared to be very careful to not do anything to piss them off. I have a friend who went on a day tour to Kaesong and that wasn't a big deal. This trip had to have been going through China since that is the only way to get into North Korea at the current time.
