“Third Hand” Appear in Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong-un’s Meeting; Suspected of Being a North Korean PS Mistake

According to Hong Kong media reports, U.S. basketball star Dennis Rodman made his second visit to North Korea last week, and last Friday, was received and had dinner with North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, where it was reported that the two had a “cordial talk” during the meal.

However, on a photograph North Korean officials published, it appeared that Rodman had a “third hand” (circled)! The outside world believes this “weird hand” is that of the interpreter between Rodman and Kim Jong-un, a joke arising from a momentary oversight by North Korean authorities when they altered the photo.

Rodman left Pyongyang to return home via Beijing on the weekend, but widely-watched Korean-American citizen Kenneth Bae, who was [previously] detained in North Korea and sentenced to reeducation through labor, was not traveling with him, and it is believed that he has not been freed.

Previously, according to a Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) report, Kim Jong-un “warmly welcomed Rodman’s trip and they had a cordial conversation” in Pyongyang. Pyongyang had previously abruptly canceled U.S. Human Rights special envoy Robert King’s visit, and Rodman’s visit sparked speculation on whether he would go forward to persuade North Korea to release Kenneth Bae.

Additionally, when Rodman returned from Pyongyang to Beijing to transfer flights, he also he also caused some “incidents”. A reporter asked for information about Kenneth Bae whereby Rodman impatiently rejected related statements. Rodman said: “You guessed what? That’s not my job to ask about Kenneth Bae. Ask Obama about that, ask Hillary Clinton!”

Uh oh, the interpreter’s hand holding the pen wasn’t PS’d out. The graphic designer is going to be sent to mine coal!!!! However, Fatty Kim III’s sunglasses and shirt are very nice.

网易河北省唐山市网友 [释迦摩尼0]: (responding to above)

Definitely won’t escape [being punished to do] mining, and the entire family will be sent away [to do hard labor].

理性思辨 [网易江苏省南京市网友]: (responding to above)

You think you’ll get to mine coal? [You’ve] made an offense against the emperor, you’ll be immediately executed by firing squad!

Does our Heavenly Kingdom’s ball players get this kind of treatment? Having given the Kim Family so much money, how come they still treat [us, China] as stupid cunts???

勃起吧P民 [网易山西省太原市杏花岭区网友]: (responding to above)

Because [we, China] are stupid cunts.

I finally see Fatty Kim III in different clothes!

网易江苏省网友 [金太阳照世界]:

Even when watching basketball there is someone in the back with a pen recording it, go record your ass!

妇B裂 [网易浙江省杭州市网友]:

Fatty Kim II’s sunglasses are too awesome, definitely living up to being the idol of North Korean middle and old-aged women, forever standing at the peak of fashion in the universe!~~~~

Personal opinion:
In the picture, the meeting and conersation between Kim and Rodman is different from formal diplomatic occassions. Plus, Kim has previously studied abroad in Switzerland, so there should be no problem when it comes to conversing in English.
So, that hand shouldn’t be of some interpreter.
Tell me, is it possible, for that person to be someone responsible for recording their conversation? [Note: See 4th image.]
Because there was no microphone in the room, because after all it wasn’t a situation where they had to make a speech.
And according to Kim’s custom, a lowly slave responsible for recording would not dare to sit behind Kim!
So [the recorder] is either squatting there or lying there prostrate and just happened to be blocked from view by Rodman.
Is what I speculated possible?

The third hand is holding a pen… Please look carefully, what kind of person needs a pen?”

网易黑龙江省绥化市网友 [guiyoulang]: (rsponding to above)

If I were to guess, that thing that looks like a pen is actually a wireless microphone antenna, couldn’t it be?

网易辽宁省葫芦岛市网友 [tianzhen725]: (responding to above)

Are you 2B? Open your eyes and look, that’s just a pen.

青者自青虫者自虫 [网易江苏省南京市网友]:

Even this kind of picture needs to be altered? Is it really necessary? Is it to show that Fatty Kim III can communicate with Rodman in English without an interpreter?

网易广东省广州市网友 ip:120.198.*.*:

Practicing fraud/deception is a common trick by XXXX country.

杜绝攻击局局长 [网易湖北省武汉市手机网友]:

North Korea and America cottoning up to each other, what does that mean?!

轻轻的摸 [网易黑龙江省牡丹江市网友]:

Kim Jong-un lived in Switzerland for five years. If he still needs an interpreter during English conversations, then he is really a pig [stupid].

鱼V人 [网易广东省汕头市网友]:

I’ve always heard about how backwards and behind North Korea is [relative to the rest of the world} and now I believe it.

常棍协理事 [网易浙江省宁波市网友]:

The interpreter was sitting behind Rodman, and the interpreter’s table is lower, so only his hand holding the pen could be seen.

aizai97 [网易辽宁省鞍山市网友]:

[Referring to 3rd picture] Fatty Kim III looks at the basketball in The Worm’s hand thinking: Motherfucker, you come all the way from distant America and all your brought me the king is this?
