Everyone knows that North Korea has, let’s call it, a flare for the dramatic, but the latest propaganda tool to be unveiled to the world really takes the cake.
The bizarre video of a dance routine put out for the world to see by North Korea’s state-run media leads us to ask the important question: Is this Kim Jong-un’s idea of badassery?
