Kim Jong-un Loves Burgers

Kim Jong-un Loves Burgers

North Korea’s Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un reportedly wants a McDonald’s in Pyongyang. Guess he’s preparing for a Korean visit from U.S. Supreme Leader Donald Trump. In the meantime, you can get a burger at Pyongyang’s Munsu Water Park, but it will cost you $76. You want fries with that?

Actually, Kim Jong-un is said to fly in Big Macs from China for his own consumption, and the few ordinary North Koreans who have $2 to spare can get hamburger-like objects at Samtaesong Cooling Beverages in Pyongyang.


“North Korea reportedly wants a McDonald’s. That could be a pretty big deal.” Caitlin Dewey, Washington Post

“CIA report says North Korea won’t denuclearize, but might open a burger joint,” Courtney Kube, Ken Dilanian and Carol E. Lee, NBC News


“Foreign Affairs Big Mac I,” Thomas L. Friedman, New York Times
