North Korea's Top Girl Group

In 2012, North Korea's Kim Jong Un handpicked five girls to be part of his very own girl band: the Moranbong Band.

The Korean Central News Agency, the state-run news agency, described the band's inception:

"Kim Jong Un organized the Moranbong band as required by the new century, prompted by a grandiose plan to bring about a dramatic turn in the field of literature and arts this year in which a new century of Juche Korea begins."

Now there are 20 members and each of them is actually highly ranked in the military!

Technically, their military service and performances make them an official military orchestra!

They're all trained in a ton of instruments and, rumors have it, are pretty good entertainers! They've never had a gig outside of North Korea though...

If you're interested in the North Korean regime, you know that all three men are addicted to Western entertainment (movies, foreign foods, basketball) so its not really a surprise...but still interesting that this exists!

You can read more about it all here!
this kinda scares me though
Oh wow. This is interesting.'s funny they're addicted to Western culture and hate the West at the same time..really interesting.
cool power of music โค๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜
Wha!? Seriously? I never thought that something like this would happen, and they like western culture? I thought they hated the west :l
