The Chosun Ilbo and TV Chosun have recently obtained a video which shows how the Korean Wave is being smuggled in to North Korea.
According to the video, a defector broker delivers a bag, which contains South Korean drama DVDs, cameras, first-aid medicine, Chinese currency, etc., to a North Korean at a point on the Tumen River. Many defectors have testified that North Koreans are stealthily watching South Korean dramas with the lights turned off to avoid detection of their illicit activities.
Although Kim Jong Eun is attempting to cut off access to the Korean Wave, the Korean Wave has been able to spread everywhere in North Korea through this route.
