Reports: Kim Jong-Un executes a conductor in front of orchestramain
The North Korean defector Yeonmi Park has shared a report that the conductor of the Pyongyang orchestra was shot 90 times in front of the orchestra and public on the dictator’s orders. The musicians were then made to troop past his body.
Apparently Kim took exception to something the conductor was reported to have said to a friend.
There is no independent corroboration of this story, as yet.
The conductor is named in the video as Hyun-woo Cho.
UPDATE: Here is a back-up report in South Korean media.
