The website for Kim Jong-Il says he’s setting world fashion trends.
Uriminzokkiri, quoting an article in communist party newspaper Rodong Sinmun, said the modest-looking suits have gripped people’s imagination and become a global vogue.
“The reason is that the august image of the Great General, who is always wearing the modest suit while working, leaves a deep impression on people’s mind in the world,” it said.
“To sum it up, that is because his image as a great man is so outstanding.”
The article quoted an unidentified French fashion expert as saying world fashion follows Kim Jong-Il’s style.
“Kim Jong-Il mode which is now spreading expeditiously worldwide is something unprecedented in the world’s history,” the stylist was quoted as saying.
North Korea has shut off communication with the rest of the world, so the folks there don’t know anything other than what the state tells them. Remember that when the FCC decides to regulate the internets.
Although some of the fawning over our own Dear Leader isn’t all that far from this:
Rainbows supposedly appeared over sacred Mount Paekdu where Kim Jong-Il was allegedly born, and he is said once to have scored 11 holes-in-one in a single round of golf.
