Kirin, not unicorn, and what's with the "proves Pyongyang was a capital of Koguryo" part? For one thing, we already know that. It's not in dispute. There are tombs of Kings of Koguryo in the city. We have written records. For another, Pyongyang WASN'T the capital of Koguryo in Tongmyong's reign.

This. Was going to post this, and NobleHam beat me to it.

And yes, this is yet another piece of where North Korea is literally trying to build up a god-emperor complex to equal the Kim family to that of Dangun Wanggeom, if not the Son of Heaven himself (yes, the first ruler of Korea was supposedly sired via sexy-time when a divine being came down to earth and had sexy time with a bear who turned herself into a woman--Korean founding mythos is weird and awesome that way). Not a whole lot of Western writers realise that the national cult of North Korea is based heavily upon the same misappropriations of pre-Buddhist Korean mythology that the Moonies have misappropriated (in their case, to basically declare Sun Myung-Moon (piss be upon him) the God-Emperor of Humanity)...hence why I've referred to the whole thing as a bad example of "COMMUNISM IS EVIL" and more of "A frank coercive religious group in the same mold as the Moonies, only with nuclear weapons and a much better information control system that mostly wears commie drag and even dropped that pretense late in Kim Jong-Il's (piss be upon him too) life".

Holocaust Agnostic: BigLuca: A Korean ... unicorn ... lair.

I understand each of those words but not when grouped together like that.

A unicorns lair is where it goes to lay its eggs.


A common misconception. Actually the eggs hatch in the lair but are laid outside. The unicorn injects its eggs directly into the host prey using the stinger on its head and then drags the infected prey back to the lair for safe keeping until the larva hatch and eat their way out.

The Chollima Monument in Pyongyang. As many times as I have seen it, I can testify that it is not a unicorn!

From TFA:

Note: As a commenter has pointed out, western ideas of a unicorn and Korean ideas of a unicorn are a bit different and a unicorn is called a Qilin in Korea. It's still a mythical creature. You can see the Qilin here.

Yeah. I love their story that Kim Jong-Il was born on the slopes of Mt. Paekdu.

What we have here is the Korean equivalent of France claiming that not only was Camelot located in Normandy, but that Excalibur was forged there, thus Great Britain should be ruled by France.

/that's a fine quality of LSD they take there in China's embarrassing buffer state.

I wish we would start doing "Berlin Airlift"-style supply drops on North Korea. And supplement it with weapon-drops to the citizenry.

North Koreans live in a real-life sci-fi dystopia. It's ridiculous and horrible and sad.

Just a reminder: if you're bored at work, KCNA is always good for a few laughs. Their reports are often along the lines of "There is this commentary piece in our state-run newspaper that denounces X. Therefore X faces scathing criticism from abroad."

It's truely most enlightening.

To fully understand what's going on here, you have to follow the link in TFA to the Worst Korea site that describes these creatures, and translate, to wit:

They found the unicorn lair; because they found a rock with the words "Unicorn Lair" written on it.

Ok, then I just found the lair of the Gangnam Style; because I found the video on YouTube.

DMZ DEATH: I just dont get why Not Best Korea doesnt give it another go at these dillweeds. Im sure they could rally the people of Best to their side, by just giving them access to real information. Any story i read about Best always leaves me scratching my head, like, how is this even possible?


Because NK could probably do a lot of collateral damage if it actually came to blows, and they threaten full-out atomic fury every year when civilian activists float balloons over the border.

That, and China's trying to get some shut-eye.
