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.

They probably don't want people finding out how bad North Korea is.

Really? I'm glad I'm not in North Korea and I never will.

2 Pornography

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

This isn't a bad idea. Pornography is just pointless and makes us Americans look ridiculous.

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

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

3 Driving

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!

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

Are you kidding me?

4 Saying Kim Jong Un is Fat

I hope I don't get called out by Kim Jong Un for saying he's fat.

He's literally the fattest person living in North Korea.

(I hope Kim Jong Un doesn't execute me for this).

5 Traveling Abroad

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

6 Playing Music

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

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!

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

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

10 Practicing Religion

Normal for every communist country out there.

The Contenders
11 Not Voting

They basically have these fake elections every 5 years and you can only vote for 1 person.

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

Basically false support

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.

13 Drinking Alcohol

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.

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!

I think that it's legal during holidays though.

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

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 Saying Anything Negative About Kim Jong Un

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

Common in most communist countries.

17 Criticizing the Government
18 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.

19 Gaming

Yeah it does. You cannot bring your Nintendo Switch.

Banning Nintendo Pisses me off so much!

20 Chewing Tobacco

Along with porn, one of the only good things NK banned. Tobacco is super bad for you and can kill you!

21 Having the Bible

This makes no sense, being religious isn't going to harm him, besides just let people believe what they want. Bastard kim jon un

It's not harmful to have the bible, I really can't believe that the government in North Korea made this law.

22 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.

23 Listening to Unapproved Music

This is like pretty much any other "crime against the state" that gets you killed.

24 Watching YouTube
25 Laughing
