Triumph: I bet the people in North Korea who don't believe it are vilified as conspiracy theorist idiots.


That's the thing about North Korea - if you don't believe the propaganda, they kill you.  So there isn't anyone in the country who would say they didn't believe it out loud.  It's a remarkably effective tool to shut people up.

This video is fake, but the official fake videos are swallowed hook, line, and sinker because the citizens are obligated to swallow it.  You could be starving in the countryside and if Kim Jong Un tells you that you have a full tummy, then you have a full tummy.

Donnchadha: Any evidence that this actually was run in Best Korea, or just something somebody made just for the laughs?


From the comments in TFA:


Alistair Coleman · The Open University
OK, here's what's wrong with this report:
- North Koreans already know they're not in the World Cup, and they're watching it on state TV, albeit with a delay of several days
- The voiceover is in a South Korean accent
- The voiceover uses South Korean slang ("Hwighting") not used in the North
- The dubbing is awful and doesn't even match up
- The editing isn't in North Korean news style (They don't do western style "packages")
Apart from that, spot on.

Word on Reddit is that the "newscaster" has a Seoul-based accent, giving it away (to folks who notice these things) as a Worst Korean satire.


It was posted like a week ago; I guess some warcraft/starcraft players got bored and did a parody... speaking of which I got a really good laugh watching TopGun iL.....  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nKuoNhihh4

...and having Googled "Korean News Backup" (the Youtube account that posted the video), I'm seeing some references of the video as a "parody":

In the opening seconds you can hear the newscaster say something like "Wordu Cupu". I doubt North Koreans would use the English transliteration, what with that being the language of the American Imperialist pig dogs.
