According to reports out of North Korea, Kim Jong Il died in a way more spectacular than any other man has died in human history.

Perhaps this thread was a jinx. Ahmadinejad better watch the cholesterol.

What's really amusing to me is that my Korean friends are infinitely more blase about his death than my Western friends. Koreans really don't seem to care, while everyone else is going crazy.

It's more of a Charlie Sheen thing than anything else though. The root of the "care" is entertainment-based as opposed to politically-based. (Which is not to say that nobody here is interested in the political fallout, but still.)

Talk about a study in contrast, Havel and Kim die the same weekend. The ridiculous and the sublime - it reminds me of when Mother Theresa and Princess Diana died in the same week.

As far as I can tell, no one in Korea noticed except those trading in won.
