Ex-girlfriend of North Korea leader 'executed by firing squad for violating pornography laws'
According to South Korean newspaper The Chosun Ilbo, she was one of famous performers who had sex on camera and later sold those tapes. Since some of other victims accused of the same crime, are said to have had Bibles, this fact, according to the newspaper, puts them in the position of the political dissidents.
Hyon and several other victims were arrested on August 17, the arrest followed by a public execution three days later.
All of them worked for Unhasu Orchestra and also performed as singers, musicians and dancers with the Wangjaesan Light Music Band.
Hyon met Kim ten years ago, when he was still single, and so was she, but the relationship was broken up by his father, Kim Jong-il
Interestingly enough, Kim's current wife, Ri Sol-ju, was also a member of the Unhasu Orchestra before becoming dictator’s wife.
"They were executed with machine guns while the key members of the Unhasu Orchestra, Wangjaesan Light Band and Moranbong Band as well as the families of the victims looked on," - The Chosun Ilbo reported with a reference to an informed source. According to another report, the family member of the executed performers were sent to prison camps, since, under the North Korea's law, they were guilty by association.
