Psychotic, fat, murderous idiot Kim Jong-un reportedly had his ex-girlfriend Hyong Song-wol executed by firing squad last month for making a ‘sex tape’. Now a video, purporting to be the tape in question, has emerged and it’s so tame it doesn’t even need an NSFW tag.
As the Daily Dot points out, the veracity of this story is almost impossible to ascertain. The video, which has been viewed over a million times on Youku, was uploaded by an anonymous source, and the North Korean government is hardly going to confirm that it killed someone for dancing to Elvis Presley in a leotard.
It’s equally unlikely however that Hyong and her “co-conspirators” were actually filming and distributing real sex tapes in one of the world’s most repressive societies. The Kim regime has never been shy about killing people either.
Randall Baran-Chong, an expert on North Korean affairs, suggested to CBC News that the whole story could be an elaborate hoax by the regime to control subjects through fear:
“They like to spread rumours to act as a deterrent. North Korea is based on these myths and legends. … They’re a great storytelling culture.”
