Holocaust Museum Opens in Korea


The entrance of the Incheon Holocaust Museum during its Grand Opening

Yesterday, hundreds of visitors came to see the grand opening of the new Incheon Holocaust Museum, the first of its kind in Asia (take that, Seoul!). They were greeted by an ominous recreation of the front gates of the notorious Auschwitz prison camp, plus a delightful balloon arch and two dancers who paid tribute to the 6 million victims of the holocaust by wearing miniskirts and performing 1980s-era aerobic routines whilst a nearby boombox blasted Jock Jams Vol. 7. Said one visitor, “The museum really affected me. The emaciated bodies, the lifeless faces, the eyes full of sorrow. God, those were the worst grand opening dancers ever!”

Yangpa Fun-fact: Dancers such as the ones pictured above are called ‘doumi’ in Korean. ‘Doumi’ literally means “one more missed credit card payment away from prostitution”.

    Dude, you do realize that many Jews lost their lives at Auschwitz, right? Not funny and in bad taste.

    My advice? Find a good woman and settle down. With some love in your life, you won’t feel the need to make fun of the deaths of millions, guaranteed.

  15. awwwwww Says:

    awww Bobster, one of the internet truths is that people typically fling around the insults they secretly don’t want to be flung at them. Especially when regarding women. Works like magic. You can learn a lot about a poster’s insecurities.
    My advice? Find a good woman and settle down. With some love in your life, you may have that iron pole removed from your ass.

    This almost equals the good taste I saw years ago in Tokyo, Japan at a conference on Tibet. Special guest Richard Gere was honored by a group of eight ‘adult’ dancers who gradually removed their clothes with the appropriate flourish and ceremony.

    Scary. This perfectly fits the Halloween season.

  27. Jessica Lee Says:

    Your post is full of junks. There is no such a museum located in In-Cheon, And the posted image is obviously a computer-generated crap by merging an image of dancers from a new opened store you took in from the street in Seoul. PiXX off.
