Incase there’s anything like hell on Earth, its North Korea.

Over the course of the years, the atrocities being carried out in the Asian country have been well documented by citizens of the land serving what can be best described as life sentences in jail.

North Korea had recently passed a law on Elimination of Reactionary Thought and Culture which carried the maximum penalty of death sentence for watching, keeping or distributing media and videos from countries like the United States of America and South Korea. The country has currently closed its borders to contain the spread of COVID-19 after having earlier outlandishly claimed there were no cases of the virus in the land.
