Uh, subby... how would opening up auto plants in South Korea curry favor with the leader of North Korea? You do realize they hate each other, right?

I think it's a remark on how Best Korean media takes all the news and tries to spin it as a positive for PRoK.

Aw, globalism, where a French-Japanese company uses an underutilized auto plant in South Korea to build SUVs for the United States.

They just want to get closer to Dear Leader's* hot new girlfriend.

/whose actual husband may or may not have been sent to the prison camps

*Does he have an official nickname now? Google shows four possibilities, plus "Lil Kim" which I think was made up by Foreign Policy magazine.

Probably because when Best Korea decides enough is enough and they need to open up relations with the rest of the world, Worst Korea will be the ones building all the infrastructure and modernization. If you want decades of consistent revenues, make friends with Worst Korea for when that day happens.

/China might step in first, though, since they can't keep building empty cities to keep their economy going

Kim Jong Un's 6 Super Duper Titles

1. Marshal of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea
2. First chairman of the National Defense Commission
3. First secretary of the Workers' Party
4. Chairman of the party's Central Military Commission
5. Member of the Presidium of the party's Political Bureau
6. Supreme commander of the Korean People's Army

Number 6 was the first one I think and it kind of stuck. Nothing like Dear Leader though.

And his golf game sucks.

I would open a plant in North Korea. While you're all whining about union labor costs I'm just going right to the logical low-cost solution... slave labor.
