Squid Game doesn’t exactly put the South in a positive light. Feels more like a maiming offence to me.

The smuggler is said to have brought a copy of Squid Game into North Korea back from China and sold USB flash drives containing the series. Sources said his sentence would be carried out by firing squad. A student who bought a drive received a life sentence, while six others who watched the show have been sentenced to five years hard labor, and teachers and school administrators have been fired and face banishment to work in remote mines or themselves, the sources said.

This is being reported by Radio Free Asia, a literal US CIA-funded propaganda piece. I wouldn’t use their articles to wipe my ass. > Radio Free Asia (RFA) was a news agency operated from 1951 to 1955 by the Central Intelligence Agency, through the Committee for Free Asia, to broadcast anti-Communist propaganda. > > Radio Free Europe and Radio Free Asia were later preserved by the Clinton Administration and repurposed into their modern iterations. In other words it’s pure bullshit. They’re not even trying to hide the fact that they’re spreading bullshit and y’all are biting down on this lol

RFA lol I don’t believe this for one second. Not given their long and storied history of completely wild nonsense getting published. Place your bets folks, is it Chinese satire misinterpreted as real or just purely made up this time?

I thought they liked the film as it showcased the horrors of a capitalist dystopian society?
