Meanwhile, Kim Jong-un Has A 12-Man Jogging Motorcade & People Are Baffled

Even if you have no idea what’s going on in Korea, you’d still gather that something incredible just wrote itself into history – a peace treaty detailing the formal ending of the Korean War and the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula. But, with the internet being the internet it was a moment earlier at the Korean Summit that captured a lot of people’s attention.

Kim Jong-un’s rather bizarre motorcade.

But first…

After a full day of formalities and meetings, the leaders of North and South Korea announced the signing of a peace treaty to formally end the Korean War. This will take place later this year. Though an armistice agreement was drawn up and signed after the Korean War ended in 1953, a peace treaty never did meaning the two Koreas were still technically at war.

North and South Korea’s leaders, Chairman Kim Jong-un and President Moon Jae-In, respectively stood together before the ‘Peace House’ (Joint Security Area) as they announced the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification on the Korean Peninsula treaty.

Though not directly spoken by Kim himself, Moon said “complete denuclearization will be achieved” which is y’huge new.

There will be a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula – this after dozens of nuclear threats this year. It’s surreal.

To the West or just anywhere else, North Korea is often seen as… different. Just think back to the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Games and the North Korean cheerleaders that were both terrifying yet intriguing.

So earlier today, Kim drove to lunch in a limo with his bodyguards from The Guard Command awkwardly jogging (?) beside the car. And not just four bodyguards around each side of the car, we’re talking 12 in a perfect outline… like ants transferring food to their queen. Seriously.

Like the terrifying cheerleaders, this copped its own little media frenzy.

Imagine if this was just a decoy.

North Korea defector, Ri Yong Guk wrote in his memoir that the Chairman has up to six layers of security detail.

“It is one of the world’s tightest security blankets through which even a single ant would find it hard to go.”

Of course, the moment CNN posted the video footage to their Twitter, people got busy replying because it is quite the sight.

A truly historic day.

P.S I hope Prince Louis cops a 12-man running motorcade one day, just for the lols.
