Sexiest man alive – 2012

28 Nov

This is one of those great stories.

Kim Jung Un is the bat shit-crazy leader of North Korea.

The People’s Daily Online, always looking for something that praises the “Dear General”, stumbled across “The Onion”.

The Onion is satire, all the way.

They borrowed it anyway.

Edited and translated by Zhang Qian, People’s Daily Online:

U.S. website The Onion has named North Korean supreme leader Kim Jung Un as the “Sexiest Man Alive for the year 2012”.

“With his devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong, sturdy frame, this Pyongyang-bred heart-throb is every woman’s dream come true. Blessed with an air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side, Kim made this newspaper’s editorial board swoon with his impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle, and, of course, that famous smile.”

“He has that rare ability to somehow be completely adorable and completely macho at the same time,” said Marissa Blake-Zweiber, editor of The Onion Style and Entertainment.

The People’s Daily Online then added about 40 pictures of him looking like a heart-throb – like the one above.

Made our day.
