Chosun Ilbo, the respected South Korean daily with sales of over two million, reported that Hyon Song-wol and her colleagues had been arrested on 17 August for breaking pornography laws. Their public execution took place three days later, with other members of North Korea’s most famous pop groups force to watch before being dispatched to prison camps, from which few prisoners return.It was a group execution. He made the families watch, machine gunned the group, then sent the families off to prison camps. Some, though, think that there might have been another reason for the execution.
An alternative explanation was that the elegant Hyon Song-wol, so publicly identified with Kim Jong-un, had attracted the jealous ire of Kim’s wife.Machine gunning the whole dance troupe to get the girlfriend. That's excessive.
