In the last month, North Korea has posted a series of video clips on YouTube brimming with satire and vitriol against leaders in South Korea and the United States.
In one such clip, North Korea attacked Yu Myung-hwan, the South Korean foreign minister, who recently criticized “pro-North Korean youths” who voted for the opposition in the June local elections, saying, “If they like the North so much, they should go and live under Kim Jong-il.”
The clip’s narrator calls Mr. Yu a “pro-American flunky” and advised Mr. Yu to earn a living “mopping the floor of the Pentagon.”
Another clip claimed that North Korea would prevail in a war with the “American imperialists” because it was armed with nuclear-fusion technology; because of its juche, or ideology of “self-reliance”; and because of a philosophical treatise written by Kim Il-sung, the North’s founding president and the father of Kim Jong-il, who died in 1994.
“I don’t think this propaganda from the North will have any significant impact among South Koreans,” said Yoo Ho-yeol, an expert on North Korea at Korea University here. “People watch this for fun, not to be influenced.”
From my limited knowledge on opinions from South Koreans about North Koreans (and vice versa), I just find this kinda funny, imagining Kim Jong-il just sitting at his computer typing out how much he thinks USA and South Korea suck.
