Singer Shin Hae-chul praises North Korea’s launch

Filed under: celebrities, douche of the week, North Korea, politics — extrakorea @ 1:20 pm

If I were to have a category called “Douche of the Week,” this guy might be the first candidate.

Shin congratulated the North, saying, “As a member of the same ethnic group, I congratulate the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on its successful launch of a rocket (I wouldn’t call it an ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missile)) in line with its sovereignty and appropriate international laws.” He posted the statement on his official Web site (www.shinhaechul.com) Wednesday.

“I also hope the Republic of Korea will have nuclear and long distance missiles, as nuclear weapons are the most effective and only way to resist foreign powers,” he added.

What an idiot. Nuclear arms on the Korean peninsula might jolt Japan out of its over-60-year-old pacifist slumber. Japan has the best technology in the world, and could have nuclear missiles tomorrow if it wanted. It doesn’t because it feels safe.

I bet this guy is one of the 57% who don’t know when the Korean War broke out as well as one of the 51% who don’t know who started it. Like these students, he probably would have failed a test of his country’s own history. For example, does he know how many Korean soldiers and civilians were killed during the Korean War? The answer, which he surely doesn’t know (nor care about) is approximately 273,000 and two million, respectively. Being “of the same ethnic group” didn’t stop the North Koreans from killing scores of South Koreans with bombs, bullets, and bayonets.

Edit/Update:

I’ve decided to go ahead and make this ignoramus my inaugural Douche of the Week. Shin Hae-chul, do all of us a favor and go and live in North Korea, you washed-up old has-been/never-was. I’m sure that Kim Jong-il would love to have you, you ricetard.
