Lair of King Tongmyong’s Unicorn Reconfirmed in DPRK [KCNA]

Some media goons are laughing up their sleeves at this report, spinning the story into DPR Koreans claiming to have ‘discovered unicorns’. This original document says nothing of the sort, only (in the KCNA’s typically non-fluent English) reveals an archeological discovery related to an ancient unicorn legend . In the meantime, nobody’s laughing about the capitalist media’s incessant lies about imaginary WMD’s across the Middle East, and the crimes and wars these lies have given rise to, just to give one example of the twisted fantasy version of reality they ladle out daily – Zuo Shou

Pyongyang, November 29 (KCNA) — Archaeologists of the History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences have recently reconfirmed a lair of the unicorn rode [sic] by King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo Kingdom (B.C. 277-A.D. 668).

The lair is located 200 meters from the Yongmyong Temple in Moran Hill in Pyongyang City. A rectangular rock carved with words “Unicorn Lair” stands in front of the lair. The carved words are believed to date back to the period of Koryo Kingdom (918-1392).

Jo Hui Sung, director of the Institute, told KCNA:

“Korea’s history books deal with the unicorn, considered to be ridden by King Tongmyong, and its lair.

The Sogyong (Pyongyang) chapter of the old book ‘Koryo History’ (geographical book), said: Ulmil Pavilion is on the top of Mt. Kumsu, with Yongmyong Temple, one of Pyongyang’s eight scenic spots, beneath it. The temple served as a relief palace for King Tongmyong, in which there is the lair of his unicorn.

The old book ‘Sinjungdonggukyojisungnam’ (Revised Handbook of Korean Geography) complied in the 16th century wrote that there is a lair west of Pubyok Pavilion in Mt. Kumsu.

The discovery of the unicorn lair, associated with legend about King Tongmyong, proves that Pyongyang was a capital city of Ancient Korea as well as Koguryo Kingdom.”
