Lair of King Tongmyong's Unicorn Reconfirmed in DPRK (North Korea Discovers Secret Unicorn Den)
Korean Central News Agency ^ | November 29 2012 Juch 101 | Korean Central News Agency

Pyongyang, November 29 (KCNA) -- Archaeologists of the History Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences have recently reconfirmed a lair of the unicorn rode by King Tongmyong, founder of the Koguryo Kingdom (B.C. 277-A.D. 668).

The lair is located 200 meters from the Yongmyong Temple in Moran Hill in Pyongyang City. A rectangular rock carved with words "Unicorn Lair" stands in front of the lair. The carved words are believed to date back to the period of Koryo Kingdom (918-1392).

Jo Hui Sung, director of the Institute, told KCNA:

"Korea's history books deal with the unicorn, considered to be ridden by King Tongmyong, and its lair.

The Sogyong (Pyongyang) chapter of the old book 'Koryo History' (geographical book), said: Ulmil Pavilion is on the top of Mt. Kumsu, with Yongmyong Temple, one of Pyongyang's eight scenic spots, beneath it. The temple served as a relief palace for King Tongmyong, in which there is the lair of his unicorn.

The old book 'Sinjungdonggukyojisungnam' (Revised Handbook of Korean Geography) complied in the 16th century wrote that there is a lair west of Pubyok Pavilion in Mt. Kumsu.

The discovery of the unicorn lair, associated with legend about King Tongmyong, proves that Pyongyang was a capital city of Ancient Korea as well as Koguryo Kingdom."

The only thing surprising about this story is that Kim Jong Un did not personally make the discovery by himself.

I’m surprised Obama didn’t find this first.

A rectangular rock carved with words "Unicorn Lair"

That is suspicious since I don't think they spoke English in Korea in 600 BC.

It’s quite the enchanted place. They reported that when Kim Jong Il died, some sacred mountain glowed and a Manchurian stork mournfully dipped his wing in salute to a statue of Dear Leader.

It’s like Mama always said, “You can glue a toilet plunger to a horse’s forehead, but that don’t make it a unicorn.”

The last sentence:The discovery of the unicorn lair, associated with legend about King Tongmyong, proves that Pyongyang was a capital city of Ancient Korea as well as Koguryo Kingdom.

In other words, DPRK has an historic claim on the entire peninsula.

How fitting that an imaginary animal that was a symbol of purity and grace should be claimed as an historic antecedent by a socialist government.

Both unicorns and socialism promise perfection, appealing to the naive. Unicorns turn out to be imaginary, which is at least benign. Socialism ultimately reveals itself to be the opposite of how it is portrayed: evil, a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Simple little spelling error. It should read, “Liar of King......”

You get a bunch of unicorns together and all kinds of strange things happen. A game of “Go Fish!” will break out. Somebody will start playing a DVD of old Bugs Bunny cartoons. A tray of root beer floats will appear. Yeah, baby, we’re wild!

I think Pyongyang (Pyongyin) was an ancient capital... then again, so was Kaesong... SEOUL means “Capital City” I believe

When this commie regime finally passes, the Nork People are going to be really pissed to find out unicorns were/are fiction.

Thanks DogByte6RER.

If they'd found it earlier, they'd have found the actual unicorn, but the locals cooked it and ate it.

For the last time, I didn’t put the sign there to make a quick buck!

You didn’t see me.

You can’t prove anything.
