GREAT LEADER’S FACEBOOK LITE!
This is what happens when I don’t pay attention. I TOTALLY missed this story about Andrew McKean’s logging into an ersatz DPRK facebook clone! Welp, I have gone back in time with Mr. Peabody and have found more goodies on this site that is no more. One has to wonder just who in Pyongyang thought this was a good idea. I kind of wonder if it was anyone there in Pyongyang but instead someone found a vulnerability and decided to fuck with Un. Either way, MUCH derp and schadenfreude ensued!
The site is a standard php version of a Facebook clone by phpdolphin

I have to also wonder about the standard use of English as the primary language on the site and not Korean at all. Perhaps it was just the default for phpdolphin but I would assume it’d be easy enough to change that. Anyway, the site went up May 27th but the domain has been registered since 2009. A look with Mr. Peabody showed nothing there before for all the way back to the beginning of time
So either this was a big joke or it was a real honest to god thing that Un was allowing? Was it some hipster in Pyongyang with nothing to do at the local internet cafe? Was it someone in the hacking community laying a savage burn on Un and the DPRK? We may never really know but I for one wonder just how Un is reacting. I mean, shit, look what they allegedly did to Sony over a shitty movie right? Is there some kid in a DPRK gulag now because he decided to Punk Un?
Using the wayback I was able to see all the users on there and get shots of their pages. I gotta say I really wish I had been in the know because I would have set up a ROCKIN Team America page!
Can you imagine it?
My god what piels of laughter would have been maniacally coming from my office. Oh well.. Missed my chance… For now… Anyway here are the other users I found.
BAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA random marketing script guy!
WAIT.. PRIMORIS ERA IS THAT YOU? WAIT. NO. IT’S ROBIN SAGE!
Rando Muslim guy… wait.. Is that you Packetknife?
Roberta, you vixen you. LOOK YOU GOT KIM TO SAY HI!!!!
jkoebler I SALUTE YOU!
You have the most epic of the profiles other than Un himself man. The flag and Star Spangled Banner!!! DUDE you planted the flag on the digital Everest here man!
Yet another rando Middle Eastern guy it seems…
Last but certainly not least is Kim Jung Un himself! Who evidently studied at the Zoolander School for Kids Who Can’t Read So Good!
I am going to lean toward this being an EPIC troll or a troll of opportunity. I honestly can see that maybe something was left open on the box, someone sussed it out, and decided to go all @DPRKNEWS on this. To those who did this I salute you. For all you Anon’s out there, JESUS FUCK YOU MISSED OUT! This is the kind of merciless motherfuckery you should be pulling!
Ps.. If any of you out there did this and wanna say hey feel free to drop me a line here anonymously and gimme more details.
Your move Un.
