Did Kim Jong Un’s 20-Something Wife Really Star In A Homemade Porno?

| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

Human right activists in South Korea, who release balloons carrying message across the border of North Korea, have issued leaflets claiming that Dear Leader Kim Jong Un’s 20-something wife once starred in a homemade porno.

Ri Sol-ju, who was born some time between 1985 and 1988, was first pictured in public appearances alongside Jong Un in 2012, although it is unclear when they married.

The allegations are simply unconfirmed rumors from newspaper reports, like those from KoreaBANG.

The group of anti-regime defectors, led by prominent Christian rights campaigner Lee Min-bok, even claimed that Sol-ju used to belong to a state-run musical group and that the rest of her band-members were executed in August by firing squad for filming other steamy sex videos and selling them.

One of Jong Un’s old flames, Hyon Song-wol, was apparently a member of the pop group. If the rumor is true, then she was also executed by "machine gun," according to The Independent.

Some have suggested the alleged execution was at the behest of Sol-ju, to kill her once-rival.

“There is a political reason behind this or, as Kim’s wife once belonged to the same group, it is possible that these executions are more about Kim’s wife,” said Professor Toshimitsu Shigemura of Waseda University in Tokyo told The Daily Telegraph.

He also noted, “If these people had only made pornographic videos, then it is simply not believable that their punishment was execution. They could have been made to disappear into the prison system instead.”

The rumors first surfaced in August in a Japanese newspaper, but North Korean defectors have publicly said the rumor is false.

Nevertheless, activists are harnessing the power of the wind to make sure their propaganda balloons reach targets in the North.

A propaganda group in China, Uriminzokkiri has called the anti-regime activity “trash.”
