Kim Jong Un's insane rules for living in N-Korea

No James Franco or Seth Rogen: Kim Jong Un's insane rules for living in N-Korea

It's all in the name. If you don't believe it ask Kim Jong Un.

The North Korean leader's latest tantrum is one for the books. After what one can safely assume was an aneurysm, the dictator has ordered every other Kim Jong Un in North Korea to change their name.

The measure appears meant to bolster a personality cult surrounding Kim, who took over after the death of his dictator father Kim Jong Il in late 2011. Seoul officials have said Pyongyang also banned the use of the names of Kim Jong Il and the country's founder, Kim Il Sung.

Such is the mania that Kim Jong Il in early 2011 ordered citizens with the same name as his son to get new names and demanded that authorities reject birth registrations of newborn babies with the name.

SO we decided to bring you his choicest diktats, things that make Kim Jong Un, Kim Jong Un:


Kim Jong Un, hates foreign shows so much that he has apparently executed ten officials for watching a South Korean soaps!

According to Yonhap news agency that cited South Korea's National Intelligence Service, besides executing the 10 officials, Kim Jong Un has so far demoted some 50 senior members of the government for watching these shows.

Last year, Kim had Jang Song Thaek, his uncle and de facto deputy, killed. And according to Bloomberg, it appears that Kim Jong Un is seeking to erase the remaining influence of his dead uncle.

This may just be one of Kim's ways to prove that he is a world leader.

2)The Socialist haircut aka Kim Jong Un's hairstyle

When he's not managing the free world, Kim Jong Un tells people how to trim their hair. Grooming, the Guardian reported, has to be proper and socialist. "The five-part series, entitled "Let's trim our hair in accordance with the socialist lifestyle", exhorted them to opt for one of several officially sanctioned haircuts, including the crew cut and the "high, middle and low" styles. Hair should be kept between 1cm and 5cm in length and should be trimmed every 15 days, it said," the Guardian reported.

But don't think he's inflexible. If you're old and balding then your age needs to be covered using your scalp. "...Even the world's most conformist state is prepared to allow a little flair in special cases: men over 50 may grow their hair to the positively bohemian length of 7cm (2.75in) on top to hide the effects of balding," Guardian reported.

3) That Seth Rogen and James Franco, pain in Kim's neck

North Korea had warned that the release of a new American comedy about a plot to assassinate leader Kim Jong Un would be an “act of war.”

If the US government doesn’t block the movie’s release, it will face “stern” and “merciless” retaliation, an unidentified spokesman for North Korea’s Foreign Ministry said in state media Wednesday.

He didn’t mention the movie by name but was clearly referring to “The Interview,” which stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as a producer and talk-show host who land an exclusive interview with the North Korean dictator and are then asked by the CIA to assassinate him.

The “reckless US provocative insanity” of mobilizing a “gangster filmmaker” to challenge the North’s leadership is triggering “a gust of hatred and rage” among North Korean people and soldiers, the spokesman said, in typically heated propaganda language.

The film’s release would be considered an “act of war that we will never tolerate,” he said.

Rogen and Franco: You don't want to piss this guys off.

4) No North Korean enemy is safe. Cause Kim's got you if he wants.

As North Korea’s new leader in 2009, Kim Jong Un vowed to wage war if the country’s enemies shot down its long-range rocket, in footage aired on state television.

The video showed Kim Jong-un shaking hands with officials at a satellite control center after scientists launched a rocket in April 2009 that stoked regional tensions and earned North Korea international sanctions and condemnation.

“I had decided to wage a real war if the enemies shot down” the rocket, Kim Jong-un was quoted as saying. A voice-over described Kim Jong-il as saying his son was in charge of the military’s anti-rocket interception operations at the time.

Well Thaiga Sky News had some other clips but that trailer would not encourage me to see the film at all.
Trash. Asinine.
Shame on Sony and Obama IMO.

Re: Balloons to drop 'Interview' on N.Korea
« Reply #3 on: December 31, 2014, 01:05:17 PM »
A South Korean activist said on Wednesday that he will launch balloons carrying DVDs of Sony's "The Interview" into North Korea to try to break down a personality cult built around dictator Kim Jong Un.

The comedy depicting an assassination attempt on Kim is at the center of tension between North Korea and the United States, with Washington blaming Pyongyang for crippling hacking attacks on Sony Entertainment. Pyongyang denies that and has vowed to retaliate.

Activist Park Sang-hak said he will start dropping 100,000 DVDs and USBs with the movie by balloon in North Korea as early as late January. Park, a North Korean defector, said he's partnering with the US -based non-profit Human Rights Foundation, which is financing the making of the DVDs and USB memory sticks of the movie with Korean subtitles.

Park said foundation officials plan to visit South Korea around Jan 20 to hand over the DVDs and USBs, and that he and the officials will then try to float the first batch of the balloons if weather conditions allow.

"North Korea's absolute leadership will be crumble if the idolisation of leader Kim breaks down," Park said by telephone.

If carried out, the move was expected to enrage North Korea, which expressed anger over the movie. In October, the country opened fire at giant balloons carrying anti-Pyongyang propaganda leaflets floated by South Korean activists, trigging an exchange of gunfire with South Korean troops.

But it is not clear how effective the plan will be, as very few ordinary North Korean citizens own computers or DVD players. Owning a computer requires permission from the government and costs as much as three months' salary for the average worker, according to South Korean analysts.

Not everyone supports sending balloons into the North, with liberals and border town residents in South Korea urging the activists to stop. North Korea has long demanded that South Korea stop the activists, but Seoul refuses, citing freedom of speech.

Park said the ballooning will be done clandestinely, with the pace picking up in March when he expects the wind direction to become more favorable.

Calls to the Human Rights Foundation on Wednesday were not immediately answered. The foundation says on its website that it works with North Korean defectors to use hydrogen balloons to send material across the border, as well smuggling items through China and broadcasting radio transmissions to reach those who own illegal short wave radios.
