KCNA Launches Video Comedy Channel

The unit was the first to invade Seoul during the Korean War.Pyongyang, in the 2011 joint editorial of its three leading newspapers, Rodong Sinmun, Joson Inmingun and Chongnyon Jonwi, somehow pulled off the rhetorical skill to be both belligerent and, at least for North Korea, reassuring – if warning of “nuclear holocaust” sounds peaceful.

(via NKEW) Take your pick of interpretations – Yonhap‘s, Korea Herald‘s,  or Martyn Williams‘s. I’m not taking the time to quote bullshit.

But, even more interesting than blather is

Martyn Williams’s help on how to access the KCNA’s new video news feature. That’s what I like for Xmas – real answers that yield all the crackpot video I could ever need.

Two video clips were posted as part of the daily news offering. The first shows scenes from around Pyongyang, including families visiting the Mansudae Grand Monument, while the second includes more shots of the city and comments from a government official identified as Kim Pyong O, a department director in the Ministry of Light Industry, on the New Year editorial (video instructions follow)

Due to the ROK National Police Agency’s paternalistic regard for my sense of humor, I can’t watch what I’m sure will be high-quality entertainment. So, please post on Facebook and friend me. Remember, somewhere in Pyongyang, there’s a struggling team of tortured geniuses dying to emigrate, to work for a realty TC show.
