Those North Koreans have a strange sense of morality. Look up "Gippeumjo" or "Kippumjo" or "joy Division" to see how their leaders carry on. - this in a nation is which around a million people died from famine in the 1990s and beyond.

North Korea:  According to a knowledgeable source, the vice minister of the People's Armed Forces was among senior officers executed by firing squad early this year for drinking alcohol and sexual carousing during the mourning period for former leader Kim Chong-il.

A government investigation ascribed to Kim Jong-un reportedly caught a dozen generals, including a deputy chief of the Army General Staff and the commanding officer of a frontline corps. All of them were accused of drinking liquor during the mourning period or being involved in sex scandals or both.
