Top 10 Everyday Activities that are Illegal in North Korea

The Top Ten

1 Surfing the Web

Kwangmyong is the North Korean internet -- its dial up. It's only in libraries, universities and other organisations throughout the country. I suppose few have it at home possibly in the capital.

Its probably legal in the capital, its legal to drive in the capital.

That's why I can't live there (along with many other reasons)

I hate North Korea because of this.

2 Pornography

North Korea is right for making the illegal. I bet people who dislike this comment watch it themselves.

Porn isn't even entertaining at all. Not much of a thing for it to be banned.

When you watched porn in North Korea, you will be executed. That's a fact

A normal law, except the leader is a pig who wants to kill everyone.

3 Driving

Less than 1/1000 of the DPRK population owns a car. Talk about "that doesn't even make any damn sense! "

I read that people can only drive if they live in Pyongyang.

Why...? I mean, it's to get to work quicker, it would help them!

Only government state officials can drive

4 Traveling Abroad

Sad... That's why I don't like DPRK that much. I hope they'd open their country more.

5 Saying Kim Jong Un is Fat
6 Playing Music

Is there even a North Korean word for "music"?

They actually have their version of music. It's called NK pop

Unless it’s K-pop I guess.

7 Making Fun of President

Kill Kim! They didn't celebrate his 34th Birthday this year, maybe the citizens are become more sane! Someone Kill Kim!

He deserves to be mocked for his actions!

North Koreans think leader as a god not made fun at

8 International Calls

Some guy in NK did this and was executed by firing squad. And I think this list was from Alltime10s.

9 Choosing a Different Haircut That's Not in the 28 that are Legal

Now its 15 haircuts that are legal

10 Practicing Religion

Normal for every communist country out there.

The Contenders

11 Not Voting

And its illegal to vote for another person, they all have to vote for the same one.

It's every five years the election.
2019 was the latest.

12 Watching Television

According to wikipedia they have these channels
1. Korean Central Television
2. Mansudae Television
3. Ryongnamsan Television
4. Sport Television
According to wikipedia they had a television series in 1980 called A New Spring in Sokgaeul which was a drama.

Um... never mind. I guess watching T.V. isn't good anyway! I don't watch it a lot anymore though.

Only state propaganda is allowed to watch.they only have 3 channels

13 Drinking Alcohol

I heard during the 100-day funeral of Kim Jong Il, some DPRK military guy was caught knocking back a few and executed with a mortar round...yikes!

DPRK_Rocks you probably live in the capital Pyongyang, seeing as you said about traffic jams and nearly everything is probably legal there. Everywhere else in North Korea its illegal to drive, use the internet, drink alcohol.

This is a very good rule, it should really be banned, North Korea has done the only good thing

I think that it's legal during holidays though.

14 Wearing Jeans
15 Watching South Korean Movies

I know this makes me sound like one of those losers, but like this if South Korea is better than North Korea.

Stupid and racist.

16 Criticizing the Government
17 Saying Anything Negative About Kim Jong Un

That's typical for a lot of communist countries...

18 Tourists Can't Talk to Anyone Who Lives in North Korea

Even though you wouldn't even understand a single word sorry. Just watch the news when North Korea comes on.

19 Trying to Leave the Country

It's a cult.
Vote for the leader only.
If you are a North Korean citizen you have to worship the leader
Citizens are brainwashed to not know anything outside and are deluded into things that are not true.

Some call North Korea a "prison", and this law is the reason why.

20 Gaming

Yeah it does. You cannot bring your Nintendo Switch.

Banning Nintendo Pisses me off so much!
