North Korea kills 2 teens in public for watching and distributing k-dramas

BY JOEL CALAMBA ESCOL, Managing Editor

The North Korean Government under the regime of President Kim Jong Un has allowed the killing of two teenagers in public for reportedly watching and distributing South Korean k-dramas, reports reaching MDNN International News Bureau said yesterday.

According to a report published by Fox News, the two teens were estimated to be between 16 and 17 years old.

During the execution of the two minors, the people of Hyesan were reportedly forced to witness the public execution through firing squad back in October, report said.

This, after the people in North Korea were warned by the North Korean officials regarding the law in said country, which prohibits its people to watch K-dramas because offenders will not be forgiven and will be sentenced to death by firing squad.

Despite the repeated warnings, still some North Korean kids continue to defy the law and they have secretly downloaded video files from contacts and other sources.

It was learned that the North Korean authorities have been conducting public meetings weeks prior to the reported execution of two minor offenders.

Meetings were supposedly aimed at warning the people in North Korea that crimes committed involving foreign media would be dealt with severely from penalties to firing squad depending on the gravity of the offense committed by anyone.

The Fox News report further stated that flash drives containing foreign media have been smuggled to North Korea and secretly distributed to their North Korean customers.

Meanwhile, Radio Free Asia said that the two teens were arrested by authorities while trying to sell flash drives containing the K-drama videos.

The North Korean Government has reminded the people they are very strict and forbids anybody from influencing its youth especially in K-pop and K-dramas that are reportedly coming from their neighbor in the south. 

In December 2020, the country passed a law called the “anti-reactionary thoughts” law – that discusses more illegal and unlawful acts, including listening to, possessing, recording, copying and distribution of any foreign media or art. The government warns the public that offenders will be charged in court and will be punished legally.
