There must be something lost in the translation: " 'I Love Pyongyang' 'Footsteps of Soldiers' and 'We are Troops of the Party' " sound like some of the communist propaganda songs that Russia, China, and Romania used to crank out in their communist prime.
But then there is " 'Excellent Horse-like Lady' " In all honesty I haven't the slightest idea what that title refers to. A lot of people have dropped posts poking fun at that title, but really, What in the Hell is that supposed to mean?

Different culture, different symbols and metaphors. Just spitballing here, but I have no doubt what the song references is at least one of the traits that the horse is a respected symbol of in most asian cultures; loyal, good-natured, hardworking, focused/diligent, open/lack of disingenuous nature.

Or they could just dig chicks that look like Sarah Jessica Parker. I am betting on the former though.

It's kinda funny... Bobby Lee did a nice Kim Jong Il act. Well, he didn't try to copy KJI's mannerisms in any way, but we don't even know much about his mannerisms.

The funny part is that Bobby Lee now looks MORE like Kim Jong-Un than he did KJI.

The Kim Jong-Nam situation is the weird part. Was expected to succeed his father and become the next dictator-for-life- then in 2001 he got busted trying to enter Japan to go see Disneyland there.

The thing is, he seems to have walked away from the whole farked up NK thing and has been living in Macau, Portugal, and China. He seems to have little interest in politics or ruling anyone. Seems like a fairly nice and down-to-earth guy. And he's very clear that he has no political significance, reporters sometimes flock to interview him when stuff like the Cheonan sinking and he's all- "how should I know??"

Basically, someone you could sit down and have a beer with.

And is it just me, or does he look like he's lost a few pounds?

She probably told him "If you want a little piece of me, you've got to lose a big piece of you."

yeah right, he's dictator, he could have any woman in NK, who's going to resist?

Her: Um, no, I'm married with a kid. Plus, you're fat.
Him: I rule you. You must give me freaky freaky. By the way, you don't have to worry about that husband or kid anymore.
Her: Ok, here's some cake.
Him: Me rooove cake!

Damn you. I was eating the kind of fruity pebbles that don't bother with a box and now one is stuck in my nose. I'm going to have to break out the netti-pot to see if I can get it out. Hurts like a biatch but everything smells awesome right now.


Couldn't you just put your finger alongside your nose and crush the cereal?

Or you could just read the lyrics in the video (if you read Korean, that is)



Basically, the song says the girl works in her factory with such dedication that her fellow workers call her "the girl who works like a horse".

He's not exactly making his own way. He lives a life of privilege off the backs of millions of oppressed people. Just because he's too much of a fat slacker to care about running a country doesn't make him a stand-up fellow.

It sounds like North Korean pop music might actually be as bad as ours. Though I would have to hear it to believe it.

Let us hope that Celine Dion never moves to North Korea. That might release the Krakken.

The mystery woman pictured accompanying North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to a string of official engagements is a previously married pop star

Kim: I really rike you. You be my number 1 girl. Rove me rong time.
Hyon: Yeah, thanks, but I am married.
Kim: No, you arn't.
Hyon: No, I really am.
Kim: You were. You husband *cough* volunteered to go on a very important secret mission, but then he died, in...uh....a training accident.
Hyon: But he was just a factory worker, he wasn't in the military!
Kim: He just joined! He wanted to surprise you.
Hyon: Dear Leader, what will I tell my 3 children?
Kim: Yeah, about that....

RealAmericanHero: People above are making riffs on her making him lose a few pounds, but in North Korea I wouldn't be surprised if some fat is considered attractive. We may live in a society where we can afford to do whatever the fark we want, and being thin requires more effort than being fat ala 26 minutes in the gym, but they live in a society where the best way to be skinny is "exist". Being fat could easily be attributed to being successful in their society so it wouldn't be a surprise if people grew up there thinking fat is attractive.


They would shiat their pants if they saw the amount of attractive people at my local walmart.
