North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is fed up with K-pop
North Korea’s Kim Jong Un described K-pop, along with Hollywood movies and bootleg music from South Korea, as a “vicious virus” infecting the minds of his people in the first major speech on culture since he took power. North Korea’s ban on K-Pop is a response to the growing threat of South Korean soft power in the region. The North Korean regime sees American news stations as a direct threat to its existence, so it is making cultural efforts to sway public opinion in its favor. Long shunned by most of the outside world and out of reach for many North Koreans, South Korean culture, including K-pop music, soap operas, and even video games, has long been coveted by Northern citizens as a sample of life in your richest neighbor.
Consequently, the country’s leader has had enough and has called it cancer. In a panicked attempt to reassert control, Kim Jong-Un ordered his government to end the cultural invasion. In recent months, hardly a day has gone by without Kim or state media criticizing the “anti-socialist and non-socialist” influences spreading in his country, especially South Korean movies, K-dramas and k pop
The government has now ordered some serious punishments that are found after these things. Those who dare to speak outside the Beijing accent in China may be forced to move from their city. It could be a matter of life or death. The documents even have a blaring order. The people who live there have started to take it seriously and now they feel that these things will no longer be in the country.
