RYAN LIPPERT WRITES – A dozen North Korean musicians faced a government firing squad last month for allegedly making and selling porn. That might have gone unnoticed by the world if one of them hadn’t been Hyon Song-wol, national chanteuse and hottie former girlfriend of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un.

Conspiracy theorists, start your engines.

In addition to their alleged sex videos, rumor had it some of the accused also owned Bibles, a big no-no in the hermit kingdom. The musicians’ families and fellow performers were forced to attend the execution, then shuttled off to concentration camps for their connections to the dead.

Business as usual in North Korea? Maybe. The less suspicious say it’s just another way for Kim Jong-un to solidify his power as Supreme Leader, and is consistent with his reputation for cruelty when dealing with those he sees as a threat to his regime.

But others speculate Kim Jong-un’s current wife, Ri Sol-ju, may have played a role in the production, jealous after hearing rumors her husband and Hyon were still having a secret fling.

Whatever the cause, it’s clear the killings have taken a toll North Korea’s entertainment industry. The surviving members of the Wangjaesan Light Music Band quit after their fellow performers were executed. And the execution will likely discourage many North Koreans from filming their own sex tapes.
