Top 10 Everyday Activities that are Illegal in North Korea

The Top Ten
1 Surfing the Web

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

2 Saying Kim Jong Un is Fat

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

He is. There's no point in denying it.

He's literally the fattest person living in North Korea. I hope Kim Jong Un doesn't execute me for this.

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 one-thousandth of the DPRK population owns a car. Talk about "that doesn't even make any damn sense!"

4 Traveling Abroad

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

5 Pornography

North Korea is right for making this 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.

6 Making Fun of President

He deserves to be mocked for his actions!

7 Practicing Religion

Normal for every communist country out there.

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

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

10 Watching Television

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

The Contenders
11 International Calls

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

12 Not Voting

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

And it's illegal to vote for another person. They all have to vote for the same one.

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!

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 Watching South Korean Movies
15 Wearing Jeans
16 Criticizing the Government
17 Saying Anything Negative About Kim Jong Un

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

Common in most communist countries.

18 Gaming

Yeah, it does. You cannot bring your Nintendo Switch.

Banning Nintendo pisses me off so much!

19 Chewing Tobacco

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

20 Having the Bible

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

This makes no sense. Being religious isn't going to harm him. Besides, just let people believe what they want. Bastard Kim Jong Un.

21 Listening to Unapproved Music

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

22 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.

23 Watching YouTube
24 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.
