The former lover of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un Executed

The former lover of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un has been executed by machine gun amid claims that she had been appearing in pornographic videos. And the brutal killing of singer Hyon Song-wol – and 11 other entertainers said to have performed on the videos – immediately led to speculation that Kim’s jealous wife was to blame.

Hyon was among a dozen singers, musicians and dancers from two pop groups who were machine-gunned to death on August 20. This is what happens when totalitarian governments control people's lives. This is what happens when unenlightened men are made gods.
