Reporting on North Korean leader Kim Jong Il’s recent and sudden death, Switzerland’s daily tabloid newspaper Blickmistakenly confused Super Junior’s Yesung, whose real name is Kim Jong Woon, with his third son of the same name.A picture of Yesung was published along with an article on Kim Jong Il’s youngest son on the front page and headline news on page 14.
The news quickly spread across the Internet once it reached a South Korean portal site. A spokesperson for Super Junior stated, “We confirmed the news through the Internet as well and have asked Blick for a correction.”
That’s a complete fail on the newspaper’s behalf, especially since they had no idea what Kim Jong Il’s son looked like.
