Hah. Just like Brian in Jeollanam-do, I just did a write-up about Oprah and Korea, only to find out that the Chosun Ilbo story that inspired my post was four years old.
Fine, I'll delete my post and move on to something more timely and important -- porn. More specifically, porn in North Korea. The Daily NK is reporting that South Korean softcore VCDs are selling in North Korea for $50 a pop.
Of course, this is hardly a new thing. TIME said that NK was being deluged by South Korean TV dramas and international porn way back in 2003.
One thing I found really interesting is that the NKs apparently call such films "colored movies." I could not find the reporter's original story in Korean, sadly, so was not able to see what the actual Korean was.
