SEOUL (AFP) - The South Korean air force has posted a Les Miserables video parody on YouTube, complete with snow-shovelling airmen, a lovelorn military service conscript and a vindictive superior officer.

The 14-minute video, entitled Les Militaribles, has garnered more than 400,000 views in just a few days and even received a Twitter nod from one of the stars of the Hollywood version, Russell Crowe.

The parody uses the same famous score for the musical's big numbers Look Down, I Dreamed A Dream and Do You Hear The People Sing? but replaces the original lyrics with an alternative Korean-language version.

In the opening scene, young airmen doing their military service labour at clearing a runway after a heavy snowfall.
