North Korean Defector Claims to have Witnessed 11 Teenage Musicians Executed with Anti-Aircraft Guns

Hee Yeon Lim is a 26-year-old defector from North Korea. She claims to have witnessed a horrific mass execution of eleven teenage musicians who were convicted of making porn. What constitutes porn in the DPRK is anyone’s guess.

According to her, an audience of 10,000 people was assembled to watch the sentence carried out. The group of musicians was brought in, tied up, gagged and had hoods placed over their heads. They were then turned into pink mist as anti-aircraft guns opened up. This was followed by tanks grinding what was left of the bodies into the dirt.

The only members of the troop spared were the prettiest ones, who were turned into sex slaves for the regime.

Is this true? No idea, but North Korean is seriously and weirdly brutal.  Read more at The Daily Mail.

    Once in a while, as a musician (56 years so far), one comes across life situations where being a musician has had dire consequences. That gig on the Titanic!… Though Victor Jara is certainly the poster child. Who knows how many musicians have suffered for playing music… (Most?!) I mean – loads of folks suffer; being a musician doesn’t matter that much as far as some kind of special suffering, except that, well, it’s art & human expression, sometimes of truth and beauty, and I believe art is the highest form of human expression.
    Very bizarre this story… NK is almost like an alternative universe… Hell?…
