Do films, either by former North Koreans or native South Koreans, that are anti-North Korea take the approach of mocking the regime as ridiculous or weak, as opposed to taking a serious approach and describing the regime as carrying out horrible human rights abuses?

    Even though I don't know anything about Korean media I am quite confident that it should be possible to find examples for both. – Philipp Dec 30 '15 at 18:44
  • Like any topic worthy of film, I'm sure both are done. – user1530 Dec 30 '15 at 23:10
  • @blip well if you take the US films about the USSR, all of them are ridiculous and cannot be seen seriously. – Anixx Jan 1 '16 at 11:19
  • @Anixx "ridiculous" isn't the same as "using ridicule". – Andrew Grimm Jan 2 '16 at 6:00
  • Between North and South, there is cold war PR. They are part of the cold war PR. In the reality, the North Korean regime is strong, stable, brutal and very well determined. – Gray Sheep Sep 3 '17 at 0:08
