Rare North Korean Music Video Sings Praises of Factory Work
It’s not often you see a music video emanating from North Korea, the most closed-off country in the world. This one, from Kim Jong-un’s reported girlfriend, music star Hyon Song-wol, offers an interesting glimpse into that country’s propaganda machine.
The song, translated at “Excellent Horse-Like Lady,” shows women happily working at what looks like a textile factory. In the end, one of the women is rewarded for her hard work with flowers and a shot reveals the clothes that are created with the materials. The workers leave the scene triumphantly.
Below is another North Korean music video, this time from Ponchonbo Electronic Ensemble called “That’s Thanks to the Leader’s Care.”
