> A North Korean man has reportedly been sentenced to death by firing squad. His crime? Smuggling copies of the hit Netflix show Squid Game into the country on USB drives and SD cards. According to a report from Radio Free Asia (via Kotaku), the man believed to be behind smuggling the show into North Korea has been apprehended and will be punished in the most extreme manner. Ultimately, it seems government censors received an anonymous tip and harsh action was taken against everyone involved. What exactly is the problem with Squid Game in North Korea, then? Earlier this month, The Washington Post reported on a state-run North Korean website that claims the Netflix series, created by South Korean director Hwang Dong-hyuk, depicts an “unequal society where the strong exploit the weak” and brandishes it a reflection of the “South Korean capitalist society where mankind is annihilated by extreme competition". They're not fans, then. “Law enforcement is not playing around with the new law, and they are fiercely trying to root out every instance of capitalist culture,” a source previously told RFA.
