Review for China’s top paper goes to town with “sexy” North Korea’s Kim by Koh Gui Qing

This brief article was about The Onion (a satirical newspaper) and how their article on Kim Jong-un as being the “Sexist man alive in 2012″ was taken seriously by a few Chinese newpapers who hailed The Onion and reposted said article with some full picture spreads of the man himself. Essentially in the end, everyone was laughing at China. In this article I really enjoyed the imagery of Kim Jong-un as “‘Blessed with an air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side, Kim made this newspaper’s editorial board swoon with his impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle, and, of course, that famous smile.’”. I would recommend this article to most whom frown at North Korea and their ideologies.
