The last place on Earth not yet polluted with Western style pop culture and consumerism. You would think that after 70 years of wholesome, commercial free living these N. Koreans would have lost their taste for soaps and TV dramas. It's almost like they're not satisfied with the indigenous culture of their great nation.
I think perhaps this isn't really a case of these good people debasing themselves with our media dreck. They are collecting this material for use in their world class education system. Course material for their uncorrupted pupils; "See little Jin? These Americans are in the last stages of starvation... their bellies have bloated so much they can no longer peddle their bikes and must use giant SUVs to do the bidding of their capitalist masters."
They're also collecting it as evidence. So you better watch out; when N. Korea finally conquers us all we'll have a lot to answer for, because they'll have the proof.
