It’s safe to say Kim Jong-un is not a fan of Squid Game.
A North Korean man has been sentenced to death by firing squad for sneaking a copy of the Netflix show into the country from China.
The student who bought a copy of Squid Game has also been sentenced to life in prison. Six others who watched it have been given five years hard labor. And teachers at the school have been fired and sent to work in mines.
A source in law enforcement in North Hamgyong province said:
“This all started last week when a high school student secretly bought a USB flash drive containing the South Korean drama Squid Game and watched it with one of his best friends in class,”
“The friend told several other students, who became interested, and they shared the flash drive with them. They were caught by the censors in 109 Sangmu, who had received a tipoff.”
Apparently now there will be intense interrogations of those arrested to find other people in connection.
