I feel so miseducated (It’ll be in the dictionary soon). I was always led by the media (one of the many disadvantages of living in such a modern society) to believe that North Korea was the horrid, fredomless, cesspool of depression…but the ruler – Kim Jong Il – died about…I dunno…a few hours ago maybe? Yesterday? Anyway, the North Koreans are seriously TOW DOWN (torn apart) from his death!
This raised so many questions about this for me…Are they genuinely sad or just being drama-Koreans? I thought Kim was really mysterious and no one knew hardly anything about him? He was a dictator…that usually has a negative connotation, right? The South Korans are happy about this…Why?
so now, his son Kim something Un has taken rule and…well no one cares because they are too busy crying and wailing over Kim…What did he do that was worthy of all of this mourning? No one mourns the wicked, right? So was he really bad or did a series of unfortunately misunderstood events portray him as the wicked witch of the east? (shoutout to my fave broadway musical)
Update 1-12-12 : They have decided to embalm his body and put it on *cringe* permanent display in a mausoleum…thing is…embalming doesn’t last forever…and because Kim is above – ground and got embalmed so long after he died, he’s going to decompose faster…while he’s on PERMANENT DISPLAY…ew.
