The North Korean Girls in Chinese Restaurants

In a booked room of the restaurant, North Korean girl Li Zhenzhu carries the bottle of alcohol around pouring drinks for every guest, while Jin Yinyu holds a microphone beside her, singing the previously popular Chinese pop song “Friend” in Cantonese. In the hallway outside the booked room, young girls wearing beautiful North Korean ethnic outfits smile, nod, and greet each passing diner.

It is January 9th and this is a North Korean restaurant in the city of Shenyang. A flock of multi-talented, good-figured girls have crossed the Yalu River from North Korea into China, shuttling back and forth among the extravagant “red lanterns and green wine” [scenes of debauchery/feasting and revelry], facing all kinds of guests with smiling faces.

They don’t have mobile phones, much less know how to go online, saying what’s on the internet are all “bad things”.

They call guests “Mister” or “Miss”, and will actively invite guests to go downstairs from the third floor booked rooms to the first floor lobby, where they enthusiastically recommend the Great Leader-themed commemorative stamps. If the guests complain that they are too expensive, they will also say, “we can lower it a little” [price is negotiable].

金波 [搜狐河南省郑州市网友]:

What we’re really looking at is who is going there to eat and who is spending the money. The Committee for Discipline Inspection [anti-corruption authorities] should investigate. There must be problems [incidents of corruption/abuse of power and public funds]. This meal is really expensive.

农林生态 [搜狐北京市网友]:

Are you people certain they are North Korean girls? And not just ethnic Korean girls?

BigBird [搜狐广东省东莞市网友]:

It’s almost Chinese New Year, rent one to bring home out of filial piety to your parents. new_face_08

王东1971在搜狐 [搜狐陕西省网友]:

North Korean women are so beautiful!

老死不相往来1700在搜 [搜狐四川省网友]:

I sincerely want to find this kind of girl.

浪费一生4317在搜狐 [搜狐四川省绵阳市网友]:

Exotic customs.

两颗心 [搜狐广东省深圳市网友]:

Is this a restaurant opened by Chinese people or a restaurant opened by North Korea in China?

搜狐网友74192813 [搜狐黑龙江省哈尔滨市网友]:

This is society, this is life. Different societies will have different people and even a different way of doing things!

疾风落叶 [搜狐河南省新乡市网友]:

They wouldn’t be spies, would they?

清 [搜狐辽宁省鞍山市网友]:

There is no need for excessive publicity of North Korea girls. A good restaurant with standardized procedures and etiquette is normal, [so this is] overly hyped. North Korea being closed off [to the outside world] is more importantly a kind of backwardness, [and thus North Korea is] not worth promoting.

搜狐新闻客户端网友 [搜狐陕西省西安市网友]:

The high-quality [well-mannered, good-charactered] service staff, is there an ulterior motive for it?

思念生了病 [搜狐云南省昆明市网友]:

Coming to China, they finally no longer have to suffer from hunger.

邪魅 [搜狐湖北省武汉市网友]:

[The girls] have an image and dignity, which is worth Chinese people learning from.

These North Korea girls are indeed so much better looking than those from South Korea. Such good genes they have. Alas alas…… South Korea’s genes are bad, all small eyes and big faces, and that’s why their plastic surgery industry is so developed.

小意境 [搜狐山西省长治市网友]:

Chinese territory only needs Chinese locals to provide service. Don’t let outsiders invade. No matter how good it is, it’s still that of others. Are the smiles of Chinese people not beautiful?

沉沦 [搜狐北京市网友]:

The Leader’s stamps, they can be a little cheaper — the Leader can be very cheap — girl, you don’t understand, the problem is even if you freely gave them away, there still might not be anyone who wants them.
