That's some good shiate.

Of course the target audience was english speakers. What would the phony english names be in korean?
 
2013-07-28 05:06:09 PM
Heh heh.
 
2013-07-28 05:15:19 PM
Well-played indeed! And if I'm not mistaken, that Korean writing (hangul) on the right says "Ha Ha News," so it's likely a news satire show.

Let's band together and file a 200 million member class action defamation suit against the station.

You're correct.  It's not a real news broadcast.

Still, why can't everyone get a sense of humour. It's the best way to handle these things.

Just like the SF TV station.

That is the last straw Korea, if you don't apologize we are going to invade a country with oil! We are super serious!

Yeah. This was on Reddit last week and in the thread the OP admitted to Photoshopping it.

Ah, bless them. That was funny.

Obvious fake. If it were real, it would have names like "Captain Kent Not Parkwell", "Heywood U. Moore-Flye", and "Co-Captain Wyatt Work Notwell".
 
2013-07-28 06:35:11 PM
Hard to imagine how polar opposites North and South Korea are. This right here should be proof enough that our fight against Communism was justified.

Okay, just have Yunjin Kim bathed and brought to my room, and we'll call it even.

Good sentiment. I never thought the fake Korean names describing the crash were racist in any way. People, especially Asians (my bro moved to Japan, married Japanese woman and has two kids...I have lengthy dealings with the Japanese)...are way too sensitive.

You know what struck me about this intern's prank? It was damn insensitive to the people that suffered. Playing with Asian names(or English names, or whatever) isn't hurtful. What's hurtful is making light of the fact that three teenage girls died, and that tens of others now have life altering injuries (paralysis, etc). I thought the parody heartless because of that...not because a young intern pieced together Asian sounding names to describe the tragedy.

And then Asiana comes back with "your parody of us hurts our reputation and we'll sue!" No douchebags, your inability to land planes hurts your reputation.

He's probably off today. Even sheriffs don't work 24/7.

There's at least one Mike Hunt who is a real person.

I think it was more likely the white reporters that decided the names were offensive to asians, and then dug up the four asians that were actually bothered by it.  Out of all the asians I know only one guy who was upset by the incident, Wi Soo Maad, and he's usually upset about something.
