A North Korean parachutist aired on social media with his shiny blue jumpsuit as he appeared with his team of olive-green-clad soldiers and leader Kim Jong Un after jumping at the opening ceremony of a defense exhibition.
“Rocket Man”, “Captain DBRK” and “Human Cannonball” are some of the names that Twitter users have praised, illuminating the generally dull official events in North Korea for the unidentified parasotist or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). Officially known as.
State media showed the parachutist, wearing a multi-colored helmet and white sneakers, descending from the sky with the flag of the ruling Labor Party of Korea at the opening ceremony in Pyongyang on Tuesday.
Apparently impressed Kim looked on with a smile.
“An excellent parachutist showed landing ability and flew a red party flag in the sky in October,” North Korea’s KCNA news agency reported.
