The People's Daily Online published a report on The Onion dubbing the North Korean leader as the "Sexist Man Alive" without any mention of the U.S. website being satirical.

"With his devastatingly handsome, round face, his boyish charm, and his strong, sturdy frame, this Pyongyang-bred heartthrob is every woman's dream come true. Blessed with an air of power that masks an unmistakable cute, cuddly side, Kim made this newspaper's editorial board swoon with his impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle, and, of course, that famous smile," The People's Daily quoted The Onion report as saying.

The Onion published an "update" to its article recognizing the People's Daily coverage.

"For more coverage on The Onion's Sexiest Man Alive 2012, Kim Jong Un, please visit our friends at the People's Daily in China, a proud Communist subsidiary of The Onion Inc. Exemplary reportage, comrades," the website said.
