The North Korea Angry at Being Called North Korea

While the North Korean team is showing a sensitive reaction to the title at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games

North Korea used puppet instead of South Korea in the subtitles while broadcasting the women’s soccer match between South and North Korea.

North Korea is sensitive to titles in this competition. 

At a press conference held on the 29th of last month after losing in the women’s basketball match between North and South Korea, a South Korean reporter asked, “How do you feel about the North Korean cheering team’s passionate cheering?” and “It’s been a while since you’ve been to an international competition, and whether the food suits you.”

Then, a North Korean official sitting next to director Jeong Seong-sim blocked the director from answering and said in English, “We are not ‘North Korea.

We are DPR Korea (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea),” and “This is not good.” “At the Asian Games, the names of all countries must be called correctly,” he said.

At a press conference for the women’s soccer quarterfinals held the next day, on the 30th, Ri Yu-il, coach of the North Korean women’s soccer team, protested by calling the team the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea rather than North Korea. 토토사이트

North Korea, which has repeatedly expressed dissatisfaction with the expression “North Korea, the North of South Korea,” retaliated with subtitles on its internal broadcast.

On the 2nd, North Korea’s Chosun Central TV reported the results of the inter-Korean match in the women’s soccer quarterfinals and included puppets instead of South Korea or South Korea in the subtitles. A puppet is a word that refers to a person who follows others’ instructions.

North Korea has traditionally called South Korea, which is allied with the United States, a puppet. 

When inter-Korean relations improved, the expression “South” or “South Korea” was used, but under the Yoon Seok-yeol administration, North Korea began to be called the Republic of Korea, and this time, the expression “puppet” reappeared.

North Korea used the expression “puppet government” toward South Korea in a speech at the 78th United Nations General Assembly general discussion held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on the 26th of last month, and also applied this expression to its internal sports broadcast.
