“Anti-reactionary thought” law. Check.
Develop Juche NK-pop to compete w/ K-pop. Blue checkmark.

Preamble to DPRK’s Constitution:
“The DPRK is a socialist fatherland of Juche which embodies the idea of & guidance by the great leader Comrade Kim II Sung.“
2/DPRK has transcended ideology by subsuming Blue Korea thru lassoing & hog-tying Western ideology and appropriating the word "Blue" into its own brand of North Korea pop culture.

Blue Sky, Blue Sea, Blue Dream
3/Clearly, "anti-reactionary thought" law is intended not to prevent North Koreans from appreciating Mickey Mouse & Friends, Rocky, Frank Sinatra & Western cultural icons, but to goad them against forsaking Juche & becoming a Judas working for Capitalists.
4/If you want to understand DPRK, read its Socialist Constitution.

Being half-Asian I've seen & realized that North Koreans (particularly those in vid👇) are a really cool people. I get Socialism. Why does everyone malign DPRK? Oh yeah, b/c of its nukes. I'm for DPRKers' dreams being realized.
North Korea Under Sanctions
2/It's easy to see in the video that North Koreans are a people comfortable in their skin, culture & society. Their views of South Koreans must reflect an "Us & Them" perspective, "they" being water, North Koreans being "blood". And "blood is thicker than water".
3/Defectors on the other hand are no longer North Koreans. They've sold their country out & betrayed Socialism to become South Koreans. They were North Koreans, but no longer, so they've forfeited their authority speak on behalf of DPRK. And they don't. NIS trains them to lie.

Preambles to Constitutions are preludes to the political ideologies that follow.
PREAMBLE to the U.S. Constitution: We the People
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility,.”
2/Preamble to DPRK’s Socialist Constitution:
“The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is a socialist fatherland of Juche which embodies the idea of and guidance by the great leader Comrade Kim II Sung. ..“
3/If the USSR & China had/have Constitutions laying out Marxist or Socialist political ideologies, why is it any different for the DPRK? Seoul doesn't acknowledge DPRK as a sovereign political entity just as Palestine doesn't acknowledge modern Israel as a Jewish state. DPRK is
