Squid Game took the world by storm as the Netflix smash hit from South Korea captivated so many. Even those in North Korea would like to watch the show, but that is not permitted in the slightest.
Radio Free Asia reports that a North Korean man was executed via firing squad for smuggling in copies of Squid Game. He reportedly sold them to several high school students who were also severely punished.
The controversial country has banned Squid Game along with many other pieces of media from capitalist countries. This is under the country’s newly passed Elimination of Reactionary Thought and Culture law.
The man who reportedly brought Squid Game into North Korea did so on USB flash drives. He was sentenced to death after being caught. The children he sold Squid Game to were sentenced to life in prison.
North Korea like to block out the world as the hermit kingdom thrives in its own delusion set forth by Kim Jung-un’ regimen. Squid Game is obviously something that they do not want within their borders.
