Two North Korean teenage boys were on Thursday sentenced to 12 years of hard labour for watching K-dramas.


According to the BBC, the boys can be seen being restrained with handcuffs in front of a large crowd of students at an open-air stadium.


K-drama is short for ‘Korean drama’ which pertains to television series created in South Korea. The series seem to be filmed in 2022.

The video includes a narrator saying, “The rotten puppet regime’s culture has spread even to teenagers. They are just 16 years old, but they ruined their own future,” BBC reports.


There is currently a ban on South Korean entertainment, including television shows, in North Korea.
