North Korea is a whole different planet. They claim to have discovered a unicorn lair. They also claimed that Kim Jong-il, father of North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, learned to walk at three weeks. The people are served daily with fear and propaganda that either depicts their dear leader as the most glorious person to ever walk this earth or spreads false news about other countries opposing them. Safe to say, they’re not a fan of the United States. Here is some North Korean propaganda as proof:

Apart from that, they also have some interesting claims to glorify their leader most of the time. Aside from their report that Kim Jong-il apparently wrote 1,500 books in three years while studying at the Kim Il-sung University, here are some bizarre propaganda claims:

Kim Jong-il Became A Global Fashion Icon

In an article written by Daily Mail, Uriminzokkiri, North Korea’s state-controlled website, stated in 2010 that the world fell in love with their dear leader’s zip-up suit.

According to the article, “The reason is that the August image of the Great General, who is always wearing the modest suit while working, leaves a deep impression on people’s mind in the world.” They even mentioned that a French fashion expert stated, “Kim Jong-il mode, which is now spreading expeditiously worldwide, is something unprecedented in the world’s history.”

I think I’ll pass.

They Have an Invisible Phone

You might have an iPhone 13 Pro Max, but you can’t get an invisible phone. Still, in 2010, the North Korean soccer team lost against Brazil, so their soccer coach had to get advice from Kim Jong-il himself through the use of a phone that’s not visible to the naked eye. ABC News wrote:

According to, the coach has claimed he gets “regular tactical advice during matches” from Jong-il “using mobile phones that are not visible to the naked eye.”

“Jong Il is said to have developed the technology himself,” the coach told

Although it looked like it didn’t work because they were dropped out of the World Cup, the team was punished through public humiliation while the manager was forced to be a construction worker.

Kim Jong-il Aced Golf The First Time He Tried It

In 2003, their news agency reported how he finished with 11 holes-in-one and achieved 38-under 34, which was “easily the greatest golfer the world has ever seen.” How cool is that?

The list goes on and on.

Kim Jong-il could drive by the time he was three.

Kim Jong-il climbed the highest mountain in Korea.

At the moment of his birth, a double rainbow appeared and the seasons changed from Winter to Summer instantly.

He developed a vaccine to cure dwarfism. At the 1989 World Festival of Youth and Students pamphlets were handed out inviting the vertically challenged to register to receive a cure for being short. The cure ended up being a one-way ticket to an uninhabited island where every dwarf in North Korea now lives.

Perhaps the most bizarre claim about Great Leader Kim is the claim that he neither urinated or defecated. He was just too perfect. Given the cultish veneration built around him, this last claim seems like a missed opportunity for Great Leader souvenirs they could have sold for big money. We imagine anyone who saw him actually go to the bathroom was in possession of a state secret that could get him executed.
