A partial translation, courtesy of the Guardian:

“Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing,” the Korean-language caption says. “It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze…”

Which video is worse? That’s a matter of personal taste, of course. But I have to give credit to the North Koreans: at least they’re honest. Unlike PSY, they don’t wish Americans dead at home and then come over here to play buddy-buddy and stuff their pockets with our cash.

Of course, unlike PSY, they couldn’t come to America even if they wanted to. I wonder if PSY appreciates that?
