North Korea is notorious for its harsh punishments. President Kim Jong Un has repeatedly test-fired nuclear weapons, despite strong opposition from the United States. He also said that he was ruling with a dictatorial attitude and that his family members had given him severe punishments for even minor crimes of high-ranking government officials.
In the current context, North Korea stands apart from the rest of the world. Strict laws are in force there. Entertainment, including cinema and entertainment, has been banned there. In this context, the government has caused a great deal of controversy by imposing the death penalty on those who smuggled the famous Netflix web series ‘Squid Game’ into Pen Drive into North Korea and the severe punishment, including life imprisonment, to school students who watched the web series.
‘Squid Game’, which was released on September 17, is the most hit series ever released on Netflix. The squid game, created by South Korean director Huang Dong Hook, has surpassed the English series Bridgeton (82 million views), the most hit series ever released on Netflix, and has risen to number one with 111 million views as the most popular series.
