He is truly a lunatic. I am sure trumped up charges...and feel so sorry for all the families being sent off to prison.

It's never safe to be friends with tyrants in power. Eventually, when the friendship ends, you'll not be happy with what happens next.

And very sad that execution is seen as an appropriate punishment for pornography in any case.

One has to wonder if there was anything other than dictatorial power and rage involved here.

This is sick behavior, whatever the true motive.
I'm reading a book called "A Small Town Near Auschwitz, By Mary Fulbrook, a professor of German history, and while North Korea is called a Communist country, may officially identify itself as such...there is no real difference., just a different wrapper on the ooze. This clown is a Fascist dictator, every bit as sick as Hitler was.

He also said he's gonna eat as many cats and dogs as he wants, and the method of boiling them alive is how they do it, no intentions of change or betterment, someone should take himout, and how he is, probably someone will,,,hurry up!

What a combination: sex tapes and bibles. They must have been truly evil!
They don't even care that the charges do not make sense, North Korean people have been conditioned to believe anything their leader says. That's really truly evil.

They were shot in front of their families and it's being said the families of those killed have been sent to prison camps under a law of guilt by association.

Ex-girlfriend singer Hyon Song-wol as well as Mun Kyong-jin executed by machine gun firing squad while their families were forced to watch and the families carted off to prison. Brutal.

Sad to think that one person could be so cruel/sick minded, and have so much control to even call these deadly shots. Not that I wish anyone harm, but I wish they would of hit him instead. Thanks Carrie

This is what happens when people have power and get it into their heads that they are hot s**t (they are generally half right, and it isn't the "hot" half). Because this has happened far away in a hereditary dictatorship, it is tempting to dismiss it with humor (and heaven knows there are elements of humor - people with this mindset make it VERY easy to make fun of them). But please notice that this is where corporations and some if not most churches are heading in the United States. All this is, is an extreme version of "my way or the highway." Scary, scary, scary.

Wow, if true and there are not other crimes that we're not being informed about, this is atrocious and borders on the same things that happened in Nazi Germany, just called a different thing. Even IF there were other crimes, execution in this way seems very barbaric to me. Was there a trial, or conviction? Wait, this is a DICTATORSHIP, so a trial and conviction isn't necessary, is it?

Some people try pruine juice, whilst others use laxtives, Kim Jong Un uses mass executions when he needs a purge. Still, I have had the odd fantasy of having a pop band executed by firing squad and who would complain about K Fed, One Direction and he spice girls up against a wall. However, to execute an ex-girlfriend is a sign of meaness but then his present wife may be the reason why she went up against the wall.

Diane L: In a Communist country, the law comes down from the leader. Whatever the Premier says that day, goes. This is what Putin is slowly rolling back.; those terrible post WW2 years.

Which is worse? Being his ex-girlfriend,now dead, or being his present girlfriend and having to sleep with that thing? I'd rather have it over with. .

Helga, there is no "present girlfriend", this maniac is married now. Okay, this story was on Nightline last night and according to reporters, there is no proof this happened. It was a story reported from an "anonymous" source in China, so could be just rumor.
