The similarities and differences between reality and the North Korea portrayed in ‘The King 2 Hearts’

North Korean locals recently shared their thoughts on the similarities and differences between North Korea and the North Korea portrayed in MBCs new drama, The King 2 Hearts.

On March 27th, a North Korean media outlet, DailyNK reported that a distributor from China, who provides pirated Korean drama CDs and DVDs to North Koreans, pointed out the similarities between the drama setting and North Korea.  According to the distributor, The King 2 Hearts does such a good job portraying modern North Korea that even the locals have a hard time differentiating whether the drama is a North Korean or South Korean film.

According to the distributor, the setting of The King 2 Hearts is very similar to that of North Koreas capital city, Pyongyang.  The Pyongyang subway seen in the drama looks almost exactly the same as the actual subway. Even the stations attendants behave and look similar to those in North Korea. The propaganda pictures and slogans are also placed in similar locations, but are described to be more revolutionary in reality. Though strong slogans such as Lets crush the South are not seen in the drama, they are common in North Korea.

The similarities, however, end there, and the differences start. Ha Ji Wons accent is in the drama is reported to be actually a dialect from Yeonbyeon. Pyongyang residents and soldiers utilize a different intonation at the end of their sentences.

Regarding Ha Ji Wons short skirt length, If a North Korean female soldier went around wearing that in Pyongyang, everyone would say that she is slutty.  She would be severely criticized back at base and may even be shot at, the distributor explained.

In addition, the distributor revealed that once Korean shows are recorded onto DVDs illegally, it takes only about a week for the recorded DVDs to spread inside North Korea, proof of the rising popularity of South Korean dramas in even an isolated nation like North Korea. People can watch a drama that was aired in the South as early as the next day after its broadcast.

The distributor also shared that, Security is so tight these days that sometimes I have to even put North Korean movie illustrations on the DVDs.  Some people even save the DVD onto their hard drive instead.

Who Wore It Better: Park Hae Jin vs. Hong Jong Hyun vs. Yonghwa

Who Wore It Better: Park Hae Jin vs. Hong Jong Hyun vs. Yonghwa

Although I lovethe style Hong Jong Hyun and Yonghwa rock this cardigan with their rugged features, this fascinating pink cardigan is supposed for flower boy Park Hae Jin whose polished and gentle nature matchesthe colour well! It truly defines his milky white skin, his key point being his white buttoned up blouse and sunglasses, which make him appear dressed up yet still casual. Hong Jong Hyun and Yonghwa had the properconcept pairing it with white, yet they slightlyget dressed IT up at all with simple white undershirts, depending heavily at the cardigan to do the entire work! Fashion shouldn't be all about one centerpiece, it's far compiled of many other parts! 

Hong Jong Hyun and Yonghwa are very mature and feature a cooler tastein order that this dainty pink cardigan isn't verythe maximum efficient on them. Thoughnow not ill-suited either, I might dearest it if they made it more their own with the cardigan buttoned up and rolled up sleeves, accenting with a pleasant matching watch or even perhaps a white fitted hat to upload some swag thing into their fashion game! With that being said, better good fortune next time boys!

Clearly Park Hae Jin is a living fashionista! His ambience is lighthearted and makes him fairly the charmer-- I will even see him dressed in it in 'Cheese In The Trap.' I also love how the colour makes his lip shine too; it can be aconceivable lip tint he paired with it as well! Either way, Park Hae Jin's outfit is on point and ample for him to rating the win for this around of who wore it better! You'll vote for your favourite on the ballot below.

Netizens speak about 3 woman  workforce LEADERS who they imagine INCOMPETENT

It has been a long time since debut yet she still hasnt improved. Many loversattempted to protect her that she was once originally a dancer and has a gorgeous voice but her voice is too little and thosego to sleep to her voice. She may much make stronger since she first got here in as a just right dancer but she presentations no improvement

I think as a leader, youre not best supposed to be lead but will have to takea particular set or role in the group. If their own portions ruin the glide of the performance, I believethey are in a position to negatively effect the team. So those are my height 3 incompetent leaders.

46 / -9 Are you able to not use the notice incompetent despite the truth thatthey'veability or not? They all have some functionsthat folk like. I believe fans would be unhappy to pay attention their usefulcontributors hear such criticism. I'm hoping yous dont use the word incompetent.
