It looks like everybody is faking it. Weird indeed. Pounding the sidewalk?

The girl at the end, with the fur collar, had a tear on her face but that's about it. I've got some South Korean friends and I'm going to ask them about this one.

Based on his press releases, the competition will now be wide open for North Korea's best bowler and golfer.

Indeed. I suspect that he actually only composed operettas, and that the perfect game was bowled on non-sanctioned lane conditions.

This could either be a time for change, or a downhill acceleration to 'worse'.

We aren't the only ones who wonder about all this public display of mourning:

Evidently if they think you aren't mourning enough, you get "singled out for punishment." I suppose people make sure they do it in front of the security cameras.
