Death penalty for those who wear jeans? Possible, in North Korea. Kim Jong-un declares war on all forms of foreign influence and in the country also jeans, dresses, films, ways of speaking that are not ‘national’, all ‘dangerous poisons’. North Korea, reports the BBC, recently introduced a new law that aims to eliminate all sorts of external influences, punishing anyone caught in ‘foreign’ clothes, such as jeans, or watching foreign films, a draconian law against that. which for the North Korean leadership is “reactionary thinking”. And now, says the BBC, anyone caught with large amounts of multimedia material originating in South Korea, the US or Japan risks up to the death penalty. Whoever is caught red-handed, with his eyes glued to foreign materials, risks 15 years in internment camps. The BBC itself recalls a recent letter from Kim to the Youth League in which it is asked to repress “bad taste, individualistic, anti-socialist behavior” among young people. Kim wants to stop the spread of slang, haircuts and fashion clothes overseas, considered to be “dangerous poisons.” The Daily Nk, an online publication based in Seoul and sources in North Korea, reported three teenagers sentenced in a re-education camp for a haircut reminiscent of South Korean K-pop idols and for wearing pants that stop above the ankles. According to analysts, the BBC points out that it has not been able to verify the news of the Daily Nk, Kim is trying in every way to stop the arrival of information from abroad in North Korea, where life is increasingly difficult.
