The New York Times reported Thursday that the hermit nation recently launched a streaming service called Manbangclaiming that it is a North Korean version of Netflix. Netflix lampoons this latest innovation from North Korea with their revised Twitter bio which now reads, "Manbang knockoff." 

Manbang is yet another channel for Kim Jong Un to spread his propaganda and delivers on-demand videos to the North Korean citizens through a set-top box. According to, a North Korean news report credits 'Mangbang' for solidifying the nation's "socialist cultural power" and giving its citizens the power to watch their country "make a leap forward every day, every hour." North Korean citizens can also pick up the English and Russian languages via learning materials provided on the streaming service. Manbang is a service exclusive to North Korea over their own version of the internet named Kwangmyong

And she said "We are all just prisoners here (in N.KOREA), of our own device" ... And in the (KIM JUNG UN) master's chambers ... They gathered for the feast ... They (N.KOREAN citizens) stab it with their steely knives ... But they just can't kill the beast (KIM JUNG UN) ... Last thing I remember ... I was Running for the Door ... I had to find the passage back ... To the place I was before ... "Relax, " said the night man ... "We are programmed to receive" ... (For @BigBlueAgain) ... You can CHECK-OUT any time you like ... BUT YOU CAN NEVER LEAVE !!! ...
