“Asian Hitler” Shinzo Abe is as Popular in South Korea as Kim Jong Un

A poll conducted by a Seoul think tank has concluded that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe enjoys a similar level of favourability in South Korea to North Korea’s dear leader, Kim Jong Un.

Don't give us those puppy-dog eyes, Shinzo. You know what you did.

According to the institute, Abe’s rating now stands at 1.0 on their 10-point scale. His determination to change Japan’s constitution in order to militarise the country, along with a recent visit to Yasukuni Shrine have caused his popularity to sink to the level of “Insane Dictator That Occasionally Threatens to Nuke Us.”

Strangely, Abe’s perceived dickishness is perhaps the one subject both sides of the Korean peninsula agree on. Last week an editorial by North Korea’s news agency labelled Abe a “militaristic maniac” and the “Asian Hitler.”
