Sources reported that recently, Kim Mo (in his early 50s), the rear head of the North Korean 3rd Corps (Nampo City) command, was publicly executed for watching and storing Korean dramas and entertainment.
In December of last year, North Korea adopted the’Reaction ideological and cultural exclusion law’ aimed at blocking the inflow of external culture, and the first victims of this law came out within the People’s Army.
According to a military source inside the Daily NK on the 25th, the authorities gathered military officers and key soldiers from the corps command at the shooting range of the corps training ground on the 22nd and executed a firing sentence on Kim.
In addition, Kim’s wife and two sons were escorted to an administrative center (political prison camp), and all of the house and property were confiscated from the state.
Kim’s misfortune began with the Central Party censorship of the 3rd and 8th Corps, which began on the 1st. The problem was not revealed here, but the censorship of the residence led by the combined command of the non-socialist military was inevitable.

A memory containing Korean dramas and entertainment was found in Kim’s house, and the censors immediately arrested him. After that, the process proceeded in a flash. He convicted all charges during the trial and was faced with’shooting’ in less than a week.
First of all, it seems that the North Korean military authorities quickly issued a death penalty in accordance with the’Reaction ideological and cultural exclusion law’. It means that the legal provisions of ‘South Korea (South Korea) distributors of movies or recordings have been punished by arms labor reform or death penalty.

Here, it is not confirmed whether he actually distributed Korean content on a large scale, but the military authorities may have stigmatized him as a so-called anti-party revolutionary molecule, “a traitor who made a transfer in sympathy with the imperialist reactionaries,” and decided to death. This is the possibility of a North Korean-style political ruling.
In addition, the decision to shoot open fire, which is not specified in the legal provisions, is interpreted with the intention of raising the atmosphere of terror.
In fact, it is said that the propaganda and agitation work within the 3rd Corps has been strengthened after the public shootout, saying, “The spread of external inflows and city hall are evil among evils” and “Let’s correct the military discipline that has been compromised by this opportunity”.
In this regard, the military non-socialist censorship unit command emphasized that “the military-wide anti-socialism, the non-socialist struggle and the work of establishing military discipline are a critical struggle to defend the socialist front line and protect the fate of the motherland and the well-being of the people.” Said.
On the other hand, the connection of this case with the 8th 1st Expansion Meeting of the Labor Party’s Central Military Committee (President Kim Jong-un on the 24th), which emphasized the establishment of discipline, is also noted.
Regarding this, the source said, “It seems to be an attempt to quell the internal backlash caused by the reduction of the period of service,” and “There may be an intention to sound the alarm that the military should not have fantasies about South Korea in the context of emphasizing the completion of war preparations.” Said.
