“You”re the Best Lee Soon Shin” is Most Popular Drama in North Korea
The fact was, according to KBS, revealed on April 2 by the board member of a North Korea-related organization, who had been attending a publication event at the National Assembly.
The member had added, "You′re the Best Lee Soon Shin is a prime example of the Korean wave sweeping through North Korea; everyone knows IU, who plays Lee Soon Shin."
A rep from the drama′s production company A Story said, "Even the actors are in awe at the news that You′re the Best Lee Soon Shin is popular even in North Korea. We believe IU′s acting, which can only be found in this drama, and the drama′s touching story are what moved the hearts of the North Koreans."
The possession of videos or publications from South Korea is severely punished in North Korea. Students, however, are known to circulate South Korean materials among themselves.
According to a survey taken by 300 North Korean defectors by the North Korea Intellectuals Solidarity in 2010, it turned out that many North Koreans were being exposed to South Korean videos, films, music and books.
