Watching Porn in Pyongyang (Part 2)

Because man cannot live on diverted food aid and crystal meth  alone:

The demand for X-rated movies among North Korea’s high cadres is so great that a single VCD sells for 50 US dollars.

The latest publication of Good Friends, a North Korea-related aid organization, tells the story of Mr. Park, a resident of Hyesan, Yangkang Province. Mr. Park was arrested for making copies of South Korean adult movies–called “colored movies” in North Korea–and selling them in Pyongyang. Despite the high price per VCD, the publication notes that supplies are getting tight.

“Mr. Park bought the CDs near the North Korean- Chinese border from China. Then he would make his friend in Pyonsung, South Pyongan Province copy them and to sell them to traders in Pyongyang,” reported the publication.    [Daily NK]

Anyone who is willing to pay fifty bucks  a tape for the kind of soft-core, low-budget  pabulum that’s featured in South Korean yogwans must be awfully desperate — and not for food, either.

It’s not the first such report I’ve seen, although I suspect that seeing South Korean porn would probably reinforce the  regime’s propaganda about the South.

  1. I would like to see some revolutionary porn. Now that would be hot.

    Then again, seeing Kim Jong Il naked is vomit enducing.

  2. Surely you’ve seen those pictures of KPA soldier-girls goose-stepping up to their faces…
