    As a tight-lipped nation, public events in North Korea are few and far between.
    But the country's famous mass games to coincide with the country's National Day, have been captured in close-up detail, showing an incredible display featuring 100,000 people.
    The spectacle shows North Koreans performing complex routines that include gymnasts synchronizing movements in line with a background of card-turners who flip cards to create an ever-changing backdrop.
    The rapid changes of image sees one card exchanged for another in a swift and synchronized movement that takes hours of rehearsals and detailed choreography.

    Thousands of Koreans are seen flipping red and white cards to form part of a giant North Korean flag to symbolise 64 years since the country's independence
    Every year, hundreds of thousands of people perform and compete in the games, one of the few public events, which coincides with North Korea's Independence Day today.
    The displays are regularly performed in the nation to celebrate national holidays such as the birthdays of rulers Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il.
    In recent years they have been the main attraction of the Arirang Festival in Pyongyang.

    The performance is known as Arirang, named after a popular folk song in Korea, and takes place inside the 150,000 capacity May Day stadium
    About 20,000 performers form the background holding large books of cards, the pages of which flip simultaneously to produce the breathtaking routines.
    Each performer is chosen in a rigorous selection process which lasts three to four months with only the best gymnasts taking a place in the final show.
    Thousands of replacements are put on standby should any of their performance levels dip.

    September 9th is said to be the most important national holiday in North Korea, celebrating the founding of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in 1948. The display was held today on the country's 64th anniversary.
    Meanwhile, former North Korean defectors released balloons carrying leaflets condemning North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his government's policies during a rally held today at the Imjingak Pavilion, north of Seoul, South Korea.

    The South Korean activists launched the balloons carrying hundreds of thousands of leaflets and DVDS across their shared border on Sunday to coincide with the National Day.
    One leaflet said: 'Rise up, our 20 million compatriots! Don't be fooled by the deception of Kim Jong Un!', referring to the North's young new leader, who took over from his father Kim Jong Il after his death last December.
    Jong Il himself took over from his own father and the North's founding president Kim Il-Sung after his death in 1994.
