South Korea lost to North Korea in the semifinals

The news that North Korea won the U-20 women's soccer Asian Cup semifinal match between South and North Korea was delivered the day after the game and labeled South Korea as a “puppet Korea.”

The Korean Central News Agency said on the 14th, “Our team defeated the puppet Korean team 3:0 in the semifinals of the 2024 Asian Football Confederation Women's Under-20 Women's Asia Cup held on the 13th.” “In the end, our players made it to the final stage.” “We have made inroads,” the report said.

He then added that the final against Japan will be held on the 16th.

This news was also published on page 3 of the Rodong Sinmun, the Labor Party's newspaper read by North Korean residents.The Rodong Shinmun article included detailed information on the jersey number of the player who scored the goal and the time the goal was scored.

Since the second half of last year, North Korean state media has been referring to South Korea as ‘puppet' rather than ‘South Korea', which implies that the South and North are Koreans, and has been frequently using the expression ‘puppet Korea' since last month.

This reflected North Korea's perception that it no longer views South Korea as a Korean people or an object of unification, but as a different country.

At the Workers' Party plenary meeting in December last year, Chairman Kim Jong-un defined inter-Korean relations as “a relationship of belligerents in war” and also stated that “words with the potential to mislead the North and the South into being compatriots” should not be used. 한국야동
