Kim Jong Il and N. Koreans as Hollywood villains
This article discusses how Kim Jong Il and North Koreans have been demonized in American pop culture. Increasingly, we see Kim Jong Il and North Koreans portrayed as the villains in films, cartoons, comics, and video games. It seems that Kim Jong Il has now replaced Saddam Hussein as the "bad guy." Bush's comments such as labeling Kim Jong Il a tyrant and evil, have undoubtedly contributed to this phenomenon in American culture. Reading this article made me realize how frequently North Korea is really used in our popular culture.
