Actually who the hell cares what the son of Monchichi thinks, the guy is living the life of a king while his serfs die all around.

The line "It's good to be the king." comes to mind whenever this leech and his ilk raise their heads.

There is not enough information to tell whether this was an extreme act of snobbery or defense of virtue. Mrs. Sol-Ju's wearing designer clothes and accessories in a poverty stricken country points probability towards snobbery, but then the improbable lines up on occasion too. If Mr. Jong-Un did not carefully look into the matter before hand, then his leadership ability would have to be seriously called into question as would the stability of North Korea to some degree.

Well, to clear up any misunderstandings, Dear Leader Kim should ask the members of the Unhasu Orchestra (with which Kim's wife was a singer) and the Wangjaesan Art Troupe to speak to the media and rebut these libelous claims against him and his wife. No? They can't because they've all been executed?

There's only one bunch of 'reptiles' in this story, and they're running the DPRK.

They wil shoot his missus next for brining the Kim name into disrepute.

I expect you'll find that those people weren't executed at all, but died in various car accidents.

Somebody better call Dennis Rodman and warn him not to touch the First Lady.

“Those who commit such a hideous crime ... will have to pay a very high price,” it warned.

Meaning more executions?

If the North Koreans are so riled by the reporting why not show some proof to the contrary? That would earn more respect than empty threats.

This guy reminds me of Pillsbury's "Doughboy".

Only that if you poke him you'll be shot at.

If these people are still alive, North Korea should show them to the world ... and let them tell their side of the story.

If they are indeed dead, well, that's that.

Kim-Jong Cartman, "Respect my authority!"

And this toad has girlfriends ?. Yuk. Must be some desperate or blind females in NK. The toad just points to who he wants to date and that's that. No questions asked and regardless of the outcome the people around him will take care of the rest for fear that any bad rumours will result in their own life artificially shortened.

You should maybe google "dictatorship".

Adultery is, by the way, still a crime in South Korea, and a topic often raised in K-dramas. In North Korea it would therefore be a firing squad offense.

Kills my chance to see "Excellent Horse-Like Lady" live.

Thats low, yes the guy is a nutter but don't talk about his wife..... leave the family out of the politics.

Some people (and some countries) are just not happy unless they have something to be miserable about. And NK is just about the most miserable "country" in Asia.

I will need more information before I buy into the executions story, but if it is true I will not be surprised, North Korea being what it is. I believe with out question the stories of the performers' sex lives. Artists are the same everywhere, even in the most repressive places. The fat boy's wife ought to lighten him up.

"Asahi said the rare execution of state performers, including a singer rumored to be Kim’s ex-girlfriend, had been ordered "

It's definitely risky to be an ex-girlfriend of lil' Kim.

Well if he didn't have them killed, they have enough blood on their hands anyway. What about the nameless people who have been marched off to the gulags that we don't know about.

North Korea always fumes at everything....there is nothing new. That is their favorite past time. They will even fume at my post now!

More of the story was available in western newspapers a couple of weeks ago including that they were executed in front of their families and then the families were all moved off to prison camps. Very sad and if true why aren't Western countries and the UN taking a stance?

oh man, it's so bad when you live in a locked up country, where the state has this control and power over its people, and where any tiny dissent costs you your life. those NK-gov murderers must one day pay, it's unbelievable that there's no end in view to such state terrorism.

Sanctioning murder - while an unproven and likely unprovable allegation - is not just media gossip...it's a tyrannical crime worthy of pursuit..

"This is an unpardonable, hideous provocation hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership," KCNA said in a commentary. "Those who commit such a hideous crime ... will have to pay a very high price," it warned.

Methinks thou doth protest too much.

Unfortunately, N.Korean peoples do not have enough information to think straight, and N.Korean mafia ruling gangs do not think the way we do; their survival come first at all cost. Shame to them as they are craving for status and dignity.

They deliberately (Asahi) stuck a finger in the eye of someone they perceive as an enemy. Sending peace talks and any possibility of finding the remains of the kidnaped Japanese citizens to impossibility.

Was there any peace talk in the making before this report? Was NK about to free some abducted japanese? Of course not.

The choice of bitter old men shame on them. Who cares about his wife? What does it have to do with anything?

Meh, it's been reported months ago as well but this time the Japanese media picked it up so NK has to pitch a hissy fit. Some things never change.
