    Korea Somehow Embarks on Justin Bieber Internet Campaign - Country somehow trying to get the Bieb to head their way, even though most citizens are denied web access

    It does not get any stranger than this. The fine folks of North Korea may really want pop star Justin Bieber to perform in their country, but it seems highly unlikely that the Bieb would play the communist country. The official 'My World Tour' vote, which is completely open to the public wishing to bring Bieber to other regions, reads, "Who wants Justin the most? Decide now." The vote concluded July 7 at 1 AM, with Korea in first place to get Bieber to perform.

    However, despite the numbers, there is a bit of a snafu. The BBC reported that "Given the fact that almost all citizens of North Korea are denied Internet access and there are restrictive controls over all media, it is unlikely that any of the votes have actually come from within the country."A North Korean Embassy spokesman told the BBC an application for the singer to visit would be dealt with in standard fashion, through the country's United Nations representative.

    Should Bieber try and play Korea despite the hardships and the fact that Koreans probably did not vote? Who do you think is really behind these votes?
