In North Korea, a pop singer named Hyon Song-wol and almost a dozen other musicians and entertainers have been executed by firing squad over a bible and sex tape video.
Reports say North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered the execution of Hyon Song-wol and 11 others for allegedly filming themselves having sex and selling the videos in China and North Korea.
The victims were also convicted of possessing copies of the Bible, which in the region is a grave crime.
The story is centered around Hyon Song-wol in reports because the North-Korean pop singer and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un actually carried on a love affair after meeting as teenagers. The young couple’s affair was cut short after Kim’s late father, dictator Kim Jong-il, forced an end of the relationship.
Ironically, Kim Jong Un’s current wife, Ri Sol-ju was a member of the same music group, the Unhasu Orchestra, as Kim’s former girlfriend Hyon Song-wol.
This story of Kim executing his alleged ex-girlfirend and marriage to a former member of the same music group alleged to have filmed a sex tape, has many questioning the reasons behind the execution.
Sadly, members of the Unhasu Orchestra, Wangjaesan Light Band, Moranbong Band, as well as the families of Hyon Song-wol and 11 other musicians and entertainers, were forced to watch the firing squad execute them for their alleged crimes of pornography and bible possession.
