We wrote earlier today about the truly bizarre North Korean propaganda video that apparently depicts a space shuttle blowing up New York City, among other things. Now, someone very industrious has subtitled the video in English. (The YouTube account that posted the new version is listed as “KimJongUnOfficial,” so there’s that.)
The Korean translation is a bit clunky in places, which somehow actually enhances the effect. “A long time the World disrespected us and laughed about our Leaders,” it opens. “That time is over now. The moment of Revenge has come.”
Here’s the full text:
A long time the World disrespected us and laughed about our Leaders.
That time is over now. The moment of Revenge has come. We won’t forget or forgive. Evil begets evil.
We tried to convince South Korea but they won’t hear.
Since we have Nuclear Weapons the world won’t laugh anymore. It’s only a question of time …
All around the world, there will be massive explosions. It will be The Revenge.
With nobody to guide them the people will break out into panic. Our Great Leader “Kim Jong Eun the 21st” has wonderful plans for this world after all. [Max here: I’m not sure what "the 21st" refers to. Kim is the third in his family’s line; his grandfather, Kim Il Sung, is depicted as the nation’s founder. Maybe this is meant as a reference to 21st century?]
The World is absolutly unprepared, we will come like a thief in the night.
Global stability unravels. By the time the show is over it will be far too late.
Rejoyce, Korea, the End of the other Nations is near.
The Spirit of Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung is with us to guide us with Strong Hand. The End is near.
Hail to our great Leader. It will be paradise.
Not only a Dream.
Hat tip: Shanghaiist.
