North Korean locals recently shared their thoughts on the similarities and differences between North Korea and the North Korea portrayed in MBC‘s new drama, ‘The King 2 Hearts‘.

On March 27th, a North Korean media outlet, DailyNK reported that a distributor from China, who provides pirated Korean drama CDs and DVDs to North Koreans, pointed out the similarities between the drama setting and North Korea. According to the distributor, ‘The King 2 Hearts’ does such a good job portraying modern North Korea that even the locals have a hard time differentiating whether the drama is a North Korean or South Korean film.

According to the distributor, the setting of ‘The King 2 Hearts’ is very similar to that of North Korea’s capital city, Pyongyang. The Pyongyang subway seen in the drama looks almost exactly the same as the actual subway. Even the station’s attendants behave and look similar to those in North Korea. The propaganda pictures and slogans are also placed in similar locations, but are described to be more revolutionary in reality. Though strong slogans such as ‘Let’s crush the South’ are not seen in the drama, they are common in North Korea.

The similarities, however, end there, and the differences start. Ha Ji Won‘s accent is in the drama is reported to be actually a dialect from Yeonbyeon. Pyongyang residents and soldiers utilize a different intonation at the end of their sentences.

Regarding Ha Ji Won’s short skirt length, “If a North Korean female soldier went around wearing that in Pyongyang, everyone would say that she is slutty. She would be severely criticized back at base and may even be shot at,” the distributor explained.

In addition, the distributor revealed that once Korean shows are recorded onto DVDs illegally, it takes only about a week for the recorded DVDs to spread inside North Korea, proof of the rising popularity of South Korean dramas in even an isolated nation like North Korea. People can watch a drama that was aired in the South as early as the next day after its broadcast.

The distributor also shared that, “Security is so tight these days that sometimes I have to even put North Korean movie illustrations on the DVDs. Some people even save the DVD onto their hard drive instead.”

SpoilersLee Seung Gi’s character meets North Korean SONE on ‘The King 2 Hearts’

On the fourth episode of MBC‘s ‘The King 2 Hearts‘, Lee Seung Gi, who plays Lee Jae Ha (Prince of South Korea), teased Jeong Man Sik (North Korean Soldier) about his secret love for Girls’ Generation. This unnecessary act by Lee Jae Ha caused Jeong Man Sik to explode in anger and confront the prince.

In previous episodes, Lee Jae Ha unwillingly joined a joint military team consisting of North and South Korean soldiers to promote peace between the two Koreas. The team is a six man party which includes Kim Hang Ah (Ha Ji Won), Choi Kwon (Kwon Yeong Bae), and Jeong Man Sik (Ri Kang Seok) who are all North Koreans. The remaining three South Koreans are Jo Jeong Seok (Eun Si Kyung), Kwon Hyeon Sang (Yeom Dong Ha), and the prince, Lee Jae Ha. Prince Lee Jae Ha, who has a rebellious and irresponsible character, didn’t get along with Jeong Man Sik from the start.

In this latest episode, Lee Jae Ha decided to play a prank on his North Korean teammate by presenting him a laptop for his birthday. Of course it wasn’t just any ordinary computer. Lee Jae Ha programmed it so that it would automatically play Girls’ Generation’s “The Boys” as soon as the device was turned on. Delighted, Jeong Man Sik happily watched the video until a video message popped up with Lee Jae Ha. “True friends understand each other’s feelings without speaking words right? You don’t need to be shy. To be awed by the culture of a highly developed country is nothing to be ashamed of,” Lee Jae Ha teased.

Enraged Jeong Man Sik grabbed a hold of Lee Jae Ha’s collar and retorted, “South Korean scumbags don’t understand different values!” After noticing the ruckus through cameras, military officials soon came to prevent the situation from escalating further.

Although North Korea is an isolated country, the locals get many of their South Korean entertainment content from China. There are bound to be a few Girls’ Generation fans (officially called “SONES“) there.
