Kim Jong Un orders 9 executed to protect wife from scandal

September 21, 2013

By YOSHIHIRO MAKINO/ Correspondent

North Korea executed nine music group performers in an apparent attempt to squelch rumors leaking that the wife of leader Kim Jong Un might once have led a provocative lifestyle.

The information comes from a high-ranking North Korean government official who recently defected.

According to sources, both the Japanese and South Korean governments have confirmed the veracity of the report.

Kim's wife, Ri Sol Ju, was a singer with the Unhasu Orchestra before she married him in June 2012.

The scandal involves members of the orchestra and the Wangjaesan Art Troupe. The nine were suspected of producing and appearing in a pornographic video.

There are a few variations of this story I heard of. It seems to suggest that these guys recorded themselves having sex, using cellphone or portable cameras, a kind of things some young people do these days. Either they sold it for money or it leaked out. According to them, Sol Ju is no better.

Man, old buddy, if I did that... there would be a string of bodies from LA to New York with stops in San Antonio, Chicago, Dallas and side trips to Tijuana, Finland and Merry Ole England.

Well, Dennis, with a few of my nuclear weapons... it can be arranged!

Hey, what... are friends for?

Rodman can make porn video and donate proceeds to N. Korea's ICBM program.:-) I am sure it will sell and Rodman will make some serious cash.

Didn't he have his wife killed ... or something like that ?

This kind of story usually evolves. Starts with several pieces of information, all about the same incident. Over a time, a certain fact can be narrowed down. What appears to be certain is: 1) 9 elite artists were suddenly executed for apparently the worst possible crime in NK. 2) It revolves around embarrassing revelation on Kim family.

Blabbing out some allegation on NK ruler's family did invite the worst possible punishment in the past. One can debate about whether the sex video angle is a cover or a real thing. I expect more information will come out.

With enough data points, we could figure it out. It usually take a few months.

You get used to it.
My dad has taken to trolling his grandkids.

I’ve probably just sparked madness with that.

The scandal involves members of the Wangjaesan Basketball Team.
The nine were suspected of producing and appearing in a pornographic video with Kim’s wife, Ri Sol Ju, who was a cheerleader with the team.
Dennis Rodman apparently approved of the executions coz Kim’s wife, Ri Sol Ju, also had her hair dyed orange in the video.

Characteristic of an aristocratic state throughout history. Look at post Augustinian Rome and Georgian England as just a couple of examples. The younger aristocrats feel shielded by their societal positions and feel unrestrained by morality. So you have Tiberius, Caligula and the Hellfire Club where licentiousness ruled.

North Korea (DPRK) is a monarchy in all but name and the times of succession are always troubling. This time it is Kim Jung Un’s efforts to secure his ‘throne’ that gives excuse to punish past sins. Those who used their privileges in the past to flout societal norms are always in danger when the strongman wants to ‘make a point’.

Pf course, innocence is no protection either!

It was his ex-girlfriend and it’s the same incident. Some reports say 9 and other say 11 executed. Nice guy there, huh, Dennis.

With enough data points, we could figure it out. It usually take a few months.

As you point out, this kind of story evolves. Here is the link to an Australian report that had 12 orchestra members executed [30 Aug.]. Like most repressive societies, there is no free press and news confirmations are made on the basis of multiple reports.

Take pre-war Soviet Union and Stalin. When was this person's last public appearance? How close was he to Stalin. Are there any pictures newly released with his appearance 'rubbed out?' Much the same for current day North Korea.

Of course, as I pointed out in my previous post (#16), in North Korea, innocence is no defense and no one is ever really safe! Witness the NK Army general who was deemed insufficiently sad at the death of the previous 'God King' Kim Jong-il;
"A senior North Korean military officer was executed with a mortar round for drinking alcohol during the 100-day mourning period for the late Kim Jong-il. Kim Chol, vice-minister of the army, was "obliterated'' after being forced to stand on a spot that had been zeroed in for a mortar round. The execution - a month after Kim Jong-il died of a heart attack - came on the orders of his son and successor, Kim Jong-un, that "no trace" of the offender be left behind, South Korea's media reported.

Now that is going out with a bang, unintentional but still a bang!

I would hate to be a member of that orchestra. Come next concert for Jong Un it might be deadly to hit a sour note.

Rodman can make porn video and donate proceeds to N. Korea's ICBM program.:-) I am sure it will sell and Rodman will make some serious cash.

And Dennis Rodman would be personally appearing in the late-night infomercials selling the DVDs.

Hope the vid comes out if it’s true.
