Among the many performances during yesterday’s celebration of their fallen dictator’s life was a song performed by the country’s first-ever girl group. First-ever! The Jongettes — yes, really — performed a tribute to Kim Jong il and later on a group of synchronized swimmers danced to the song, “We Will Defend General Kim Jong Un at the Risk of Our Lives.” How uplifting!

Like father, like son. Since the recent death of Kim Jong Il, North Korean state-run media has been releasing a series of images of the “Great Successor,” Kim Jong Un looking at a variety of mundane things.
It’s easy to forget that Kim Jong-Il, though he may have been a tyrant who starved and oppressed his own people, was still someone’s daddy. Unlike the hysterical theatrics in Pyongyang’s streets, these tears might be genuine. Awwww…does the Great Successor need a tissue?
The recently departed “Dear Leader” was called many things in his life. The following are allegedly all titles that were ascribed to him by foreign leaders (according to North Korea).

So, are they faking it?
With Kim Jong-Il’s passing, we take a look at the three sons he fathered, and why the youngest is taking the reigns.
There’s a reason why any foreigner who dares to visit North Korea is arrested if attempting to wander outside of a guided tour arranged by the government. They might catch a glimpse of the hunger crisis going on. For more on the subject, I recommend reading “Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea” by Barbara Demick and watching the documentary “Seoul Train”.
Kim Jong-Il deemed his second son, Kim Jong Chol, “too feminine” to take power. This poem that Jong Chol wrote (under the pseudonym Chol Pak) entitled “My Ideal World” might have something to do with that.
This picture, taken this morning, sums up how much South Koreans will miss the freshly departed Dear Leader of the North. Yeesh…tell us how you REALLY feel, Unknown Man In Seoul.
This footage was taken from North Korean state media and it’s so unbelievably creepy. I have chills.
I hope the afterlife is filled with many kinds of sausages and cheese.
Because when a dictator dies, people need to tweet about it. These were the best that Twitter had to offer. Read More ›
