North Korea went ‘too far’ by burning Yoon Suk-yeol in effigy, Seoul says

Anti-South propaganda campaign in full gear as DPRK state media seeks to amplify hatred for ‘puppet traitor’ president

South Korea condemned North Korea for organizing a rally this week to burn President Yoon Suk-yeol in effigy, stating that Pyongyang went “too far” as it ratchets up internal anti-ROK and U.S. activities.

State media also published dozens of photos Friday of anti-Yoon protests in Seoul as part of efforts to paint him as a “puppet” of Washington with no domestic support, while reporting on more domestic rallies calling for “exterminating” Americans and South Koreans.
