Out of all of the lights, the light beams in the areas of North Korea caught the attention of many. The red light is seen glowing in Pyongyang,the capital of North Korea, as well as several other cities of the country.

Former North Korean deputy ambassador Thae Young Hoexplained that it has now become common for North Koreans to enjoy the South Korean media. However, listening to South Korean music and watching South Korean dramas were strictly prohibited by a law created in 2015. A person can be sentenced 10 years of hard labor for coming in contact with the restricted content.

Netizens expressed amazement at the dedication of EXO fans in North Korea. A comment stated, “It’s amazing enough that they’re on social media in North Korea but it’s more surprising how there are fans of EXO.”
