That Excellent Horse Like Lady
Things certainly are done differently in North Korea. After making a pop song clip called “Excellent Horse Like Lady”, Kim Jong Un's new squeeze is catching worldwide attention.
Perhaps getting tagged with the title of most excellent horse like lady would be more than enough. But this mystery woman seems to have won the affections of none other than North Korea’s “Dear Leader” himself. Which only goes to show that even despotic tyrants still need a cuddle. At least now and then.
In this rigidly Stalinist society, a swirl of colour, a smiling face, and a waving streamer must be bit of a relief. Otherwise, how else can you explain why a bunch of factory women spooling cotton and prancing about in the “Excellent Horse Like Lady” song clip could become so popular?
Perhaps it’s just the singer, Ms Hyon Song-wol’s, bubbly enthusiasm? Whatever it is, she has certainly won Kim Jong Un over. Appearing close by his side at state functions, this most excellent horse like lady is causing a bit of a stir.
Now I’d like to think that North Korea’s “Dear Leader” is breaking all the rules of protocol for that crazy little thing called love. But, from a distance it’s hard to tell whether he is cleaning up his act. Or, he just wants what he wants.
I mean, it takes a bit of imagination to picture yourself falling under the spell of a woman who goes by the moniker of most excellent horse like lady. I mean, she doesn't look like a horse...
Why not a most excellent squirrel like lady (complete with chubby cheeks)? Or even most amazing chicken like lady? She could have her own perfume too. Eu de Poulet!
If a love interest can break through such a tough, unflinching culture, she can be any critter she likes.
Can affection for this excellent horse like lady really make a difference? History will judge. But, somehow, in the kooky and unsettling realm of North Korea, plenty of people wish it would.
Dozens of armoured divisions, and crowds of diplomatic attaches don't seem to be working. So why not a bit of love interest? I know it's a long shot, but sure as eggs we need a miracle to put an end to the Dr Evil impressions. And if it takes a most excellent horselike lady to make the change, then giddy up horsey!
