Hyon Song-wol, Kim Jong-un's rumored ex-girlfriend was executed last week in North Korea, sources claim. The well-known singer and members of the Unhasu Orchestra, Wangjaesan Light Band, and Moranbong Band allegedly made sex tapes of themselves and sold them for profit, which is a violation of the country's anti-pornography laws.
South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo broke the news about the disturbing story, according to an August 29 Fox News report.
Reportedly, Kim Jong-un's ex-girlfriend was executed three days after she and several musicians were arrested on charges of taking part in behavior considered taboo in the country.
The story read:
"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."
Sources say Kim Jong-un and Hyon Song-wol began dating over ten years ago and were unmarried at the time. However, his father Kim Jong-il, North Korea’s leader at the time, told his son to call off the relationship for unknown reasons.
Ironically, Jong-un's wife, Ri Sol-ju, was a member of the Unhasu Orchestra before she wed the current North Korean leader. However, it is unknown if she had a hand in the public executions or was tied to Hyon Song-wol in any way.
Reportedly, while members of the dance-orchestra groups and Kim Jong-un's girlfriend were executed by firing squad, family members watched. They were then led back to prison camps. It's unknown what their fate will be.
