No More Imperialist Time in the North
As a big fuck you to Japan, North Korea has decided it’s now running by its own time zone, “Pyongyang Time,” which means starting on August 15th all of North Korea will be setting their clocks back 30 minutes. South Korea, who also isn’t a big fan of the Japanese “Imperialists,” has decided their hate isn’t worth the hassle, and doesn’t plan on taking the North’s lead any time soon.
What’s The Beef?
North Korea has issues when it comes to get over past differences, and this is no different. Pre World War II, Japan had rule over Korea, once they were defeated and the peninsula of Korea was free, they still kept certain things applied by Japanese rule. One of these things, which wouldn’t matter to most, is their current time zone. But North Korea don’t roll like that, and no one tells them what time it is. So on the 70th Anniversary of Japan’s defeat in WWII, North Korea has decided to act like their teenage rebellion and turn the clocks back 30 minutes.
