Insane music video + lyrics – EXCELLENT HORSE-LIKE LADY

OK, this is a first for me. I am pritnear speechless, despite the fact that I spelled “pritnear” PERFECTLY.

I found a music video from North Korea that is not a joke or an Onion parody. It’s a hit song from 2005, and yes, we now have the actual lyrics to this pop music masterpiece.

Why do we care?

Because the new dictator of North Korea used to be her boyfriend, years ago, but his daddy forbade him from seeing her. She is was married to a soldier and had a kid. HOWEVER: Now that junior runs the country, she’s by his side all the time. I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP. There are stories in respected papers of news and such. Here’s one:

Lil’ Kim and the married pop star: North Korean leader’s mystery girl

Update: And now it’s official. News reports say she is married to the young Dear Leader, though there’s no mention of what happened to the old husband and such.

As a special bonus, NPR figured out the lyrics to the song.

Our factory comrades say in jest
Why they tell me I am a virgin on a stallion
After a full day’s work i still have energy left
My skills are truly like lightening they say
They say I am a virgin on a stallion
Yet again today I was the first to leave for work
Apparently my name was in the paper
In a (?) time
An award given to youth who live in flight
They say I am a virgin on a stallion
The party era is teeming with creation
A new name they present to youth
Mounting a stallion the dear leader gave me
All my life I will live to uphold his name
They say I am a virgin on a stallion
Mounting a stallion my dear leader gave me
All my life I will live to uphold his name

Also: her other big hit, SHE IS A DISCHARGED SOLDIER.

Finally: the classic, NORTH KOREA PARTY ROCKING.

    @ Rozzy…. yes, it does. While on onehand it’s scary as sh*t, on the other hand, that someone had the time & footage to edit that mother is pretty mind-blowing. And now, for another mind-blowing tidbit from “The Week”. (My morning post on FB. You just can’t make this up.)

    “Pyongyang, North Korea
    Kim’s affair with pop star: North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un is apparently having an affair with a married pop singer. South Korean newspapers say that the woman who as appeared at Kim’s side in several recent official photos is Hyon Song-Wol, a former singer with the Pochonbo Electronic Ensemble – best known for the 2005 hit “Excellent Horse-Like Lady”; Hyon is reported to have been Kim’s girlfriend a decade ago. The two dated for some time until Kim’s father, the late Kim Jong-Il, ordered his son to break it off. Hyon was seen in public again early this year, when she performed – visibly pregnant, presumably with her husband’s child – at an event attended by Kim. If it’s all true, they could both be cheating: Rumors have swirled for years that Kim is to be married to a doctoral student.”

    Not often you hear the epithets ‘excellent’ and ‘horse-like’ applied to the same noun. Utterly bizarre. This woman could be the new Korean first lady. Will she be referred to as ‘horse-like’ for the duration of this tenure? I fear she may come to regret her pop-stardom…

  32. That “party rock” video just fills one with conflicting emotions doesn’t it.

  33. Wow, who knew N. Korea was so PEPPY? What is it they grow there? I want some!
