If, as Mr. Ilkhani stated, they were unaware Americans were onboard, why did Mr. Haghighatpour feel the need to discuss the attitude Americans should expect?

Because he enjoys belabouring the obvious.

Metro Man/ATC Watched; thanks, hadn't considered that angle on it before. Makes sense.

Rumour is...that there are only the same two controllers that work the flights(same 2 voices every time). A lady and a man on opposite shifts, 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Probably a great job if you live in NK.
Those may be canned responses made up from pre-recorded words and phrases. It is the same technology as used in several ATIS and VOLMET systems. The North Koreans do have the systems to do that.
