A North Korean parachutist has lit up social media along with his shiny blue jumpsuit as he posed with ranks of olive-green clad navy males and chief Kim Jong Un after taking a leap on the opening ceremony of a defence exhibition.
“Rocket Man”, “Captain DPRK” and “Human Cannonball” have been among the names admiring Twitter customers gave the unidentified parachutist who brightened up what are often boring official occasions in North Korea, or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), as it’s formally recognized.
State media confirmed the parachutist, who additionally wore a multi-coloured helmet and white sneakers, descending from the sky with the flag of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea on the opening ceremony in Pyongyang on Tuesday.
An apparently impressed Kim was proven trying up smiling.
“A top-notch parachutist showed landing skills, fluttering red Party flag in the sky in October,” North Korea’s KCNA information company mentioned.
