Smuggling The Interview Into North Korea?

Watch The Interview

Has any other movie in history caused such drama like The Interview has? Maybe one of you know…

One of the bigger stories to end 2014 had to do with North Korea supposedly being involved in hacking Sony due to being offended over the movie The Interview. After a variety of threats the movie was pulled from theaters and nobody knew what would become of it. Continue reading Smuggling The Interview Into North Korea?

This past week North Korea’s internet went down more or less for a few days.

From what I read, this disruption wouldn’t have really affected the average North Korean but it would send a strong message to the elite and military.

So who is to blame for the outage? Continue reading North Korea Blames US For Internet Shut Down, Calls Obama WHAT???

These days it seems like the Koreas are making headlines for some pretty crazy reasons…

South Korea (well a Korean Air executive actually) made headlines due to a crazy incident before a flight took off due to macadamia nuts.

Check out my posts:

Yahoo News also reported that South Korean prosecutors will arrest the nutty former Korean Air executive.

Now lets look at the major story related to North Korea which might just be even more bizarre than nuts. Continue reading Watch The Interview Online NOW!

Poll Results: Is It Wrong To Visit Countries With Oppressive Regimes?

London Salon's Trouble Over Kim Jong Un Haircut Sale

Earlier in the week I ran a poll asking  the question, Is It Wrong To Visit Countries With Oppressive Regimes? 

My idea for the topic came about due to a post from the end of July, Send Your Kids To North Korea For What??? (With the what being- summer camp) 

In the post about sending kids to summer camp in North Korea one commenter suggested that visiting North Korea meant that you were supporting the government. Linda wrote “I just don’t understand people that would support KJU by their tourism. It frankly shocks me that people do this.” Continue reading Poll Results: Is It Wrong To Visit Countries With Oppressive Regimes?

After keeping Lucas home with a babysitter for around 2.5 years, he started camp this summer. It’s been a little over 3 weeks of camp and he seems to love it so far.

Lucas’ camp is less than a five-minute ride from home. As a kid I wanted to go to sleepaway camp but didn’t get a chance to. Maybe when Lucas gets to be a little older Kim and I should consider sending him to sleepaway camp in North Korea! Continue reading Send Your Kids to North Korea For What???

North Korea detained an American citizen in mid-May for the crime of leaving a Bible in his hotel room. Oh the horror! Talk about a ridiculous reason to be taken in.

The man, Jeffrey Edward Fowle was being questioned by authorities for conduct inappropriate for the purpose of his visit as a tourist. He was detained just before he was supposed to leave North Korea. Continue reading American Detained In North Korea For…

London Salon’s Trouble Over Kim Jong Un Haircut Sale

image from USA Today article

Last month there was lots of talk in the media that North Korea would be requiring men to get the same haircut as leader Kim Jong Un. A couple of days after hearing about this, USA Today reported that these stories were most likely not true.

With little known about Kim Jong Un and North Korea, it’s relatively easy to make silly jokes and references about them.
