So The Onion published a spoof proclaiming North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un as the sexiest man alive. China Daily Online picked up on the story, and apparently not realizing that it was a joke, ran with and reprinted the spoof as a legitimate story.


The Chinese story reprinted satirical comments describing Kim's "air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side," his "impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle, and," the story says, "that famous smile."
