N. Korean TV pixelates the image of the protest against Park Geun-hye. What do they want to hide?

Korean Central Television, a state-owned television service in North Korea, broadcasted the pixelated image of the rally calling for South Korean President Park Geun-hye to step down since November.

It happened in a talk show called “The traitor, Park Geun-hye, must stop playing the deceptive “political game” and immediately resign” on the third of December.

The TV show broadcasted around 20 images to introduce the situation of the rally and related gatherings for 13 minutes.  However, high-rise buildings in the central Seoul and the bronze statues of Commander Yi Sun-sin and King Sejong at Gwanghwamun Square were all pixelated.

(Commander Yi Sun-sin is famed for his victories against the Japanese navy during the Japanese invasion of Korea by Hideyoshi Toyotomi in the 16thcentury.  King Sejong created the Korean alphabet, Hangul, in the 15th century.)

Korean Central Television, operating under the regime, unnaturally pixelated the images to hide the development of South Korea while actively propagandizing the growing anti-Park Geun-hye sentiment among South Korean people.

Commander Yi Sun-sin and King Sejong are regarded as heroes in North Korea as well, about whom students learn at school.  However, regarding bronze statues, only those of Kil Il-sung, Kim Jong-il, and his mother Kim Jong-suk can be built in the city central.  In North Korea, people can revere only three of them as “the peerless great person”.

However, it is unrealistic that the bronze statues of the heroes around 400 to 500 years ago located in Seoul would have a significant influence on the people in North Korea.  Presumably, censorship personnel in the talk show have pixelated the images with precaution since they overly surmised the opinion of the government, for fear of being criticized later on.
