Kim Jong-Un Has An “Epic” Horse Photoshoot And People Can’t Help But Laugh At His Little Legs

Published 1 month ago

Like any self-respecting dictator, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has to keep up appearances. And what better way to do that than by having an epic photoshoot where you’re majestically riding through a snowy landscape on horseback – you know, just your casual dictator things.

The photoshoot was organized on the sacred Mount Paektu, North Korea’s highest peak, and will most likely make one hell of a propaganda poster. But even though Kim Jong-Un may feel majestic on his noble steed, people are finding the whole photoshoot pretty hilarious.

People speculate that the whole white horse and snowy mountains might have some sort of hidden meaning.

Giddy-up, Horsey!

The journey to the top of the mountain might mean some big announcement is coming. Mount Paektu has a significant meaning in North Korean mythology – it is said that Kim Jong-Il, the father of Kim Jong-un, was born there.

“Sitting on the horseback atop Mt Paektu, [he] recollected with deep emotion the road of arduous struggle he covered for the great cause of building the most powerful country, with faith and will as firm as Mount Paektu,” claim KCNA, North Korea’s state media.

“I think he just wants to show off his power, despite the failed result of working-level talks between Washington and Pyongyang,” said Daeun Choi, a woman working with the EU delegation, in a recent interview with Bored Panda.

“Some others say he just wants to look like his grandfather or Putin,” pointed out Choi.

People were quick to make fun of the photoshoot

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
