A North Korean Man Who Smuggled 'Squid Game' Into The Country Is To Be Executed
A student in North Korea has been sentenced to death by a firing squad for selling copies of Netflix’s hit show Squid Game.
He is said to have smuggled the banned series into the Communist state on a stashed USB drive from China.
He was caught after selling copies to several people including fellow students, according to sources in the country cited by Radio Free Asia (RFA).
It is understood he will be executed by firing squad – one of the brutal methods by which characters in the horror series are also killed.
Officials are now carrying out searches at the students’ school to find anymore foreign media, which is strictly banned in the reclusive country.
Despite leader Kim Jong-un’s strict censorship laws, copies of the South Korean drama are said to be spreading among people in the north on flash drives and SD cards.
‘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.’
Sources said Squid Game’s dystopian world, in which indebted people are pitted against each other in children’s games with deadly stakes, clearly resonates with North Koreans living under dictatorship.
The arrests mark the first time that North Korea is applying its ‘Law on the Elimination of Reactionary Thought and Culture’ in a case involving minors, according to an RFA source.
