Moranbong Band

Red Alert.

An all-female band formed by the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un cancelled its concerts in Beijing and abruptly left the Chinese capital for unknown reasons.
Watch the crowd go wild….

North Korea’s Moranbong Band playing the song “Without a Break” during their 2013 New Year’s Eve performance. In the background, a screen shows a missile launch, and the crowd cheers after it destroys the world.

However band members arrived at Beijing’s airport in North Korean embassy vehicles on Saturday afternoon and departed aboard a North Korean Air Koryo jet shortly after 4pm following a lengthy delay, the Chinese news website reported.

A staff member at the National Theatre, where the band was to give the invitation-only performances, said the concerts had been cancelled but did not give a reason. An accompanying North Korean musical troupe, the State Merited Chorus, also cancelled its performances.

The bands’ abrupt departures might have been related to stories circulated by the South Korean media about a rumoured past relationship between the married Kim and a female member of the band, which also made rounds on Chinese social media, said Yang Moo-jin, a North Korea expert at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul.

Pack up your weapons girls we’re outta here… Red Alert.














North Korea has built a cult of personality around the Kim family, which has ruled for three generations, and sees any outside criticism or mockery of its leader as an attack on its sovereignty.

“There are few things the North takes more seriously than an attack on the dignity of its supreme leadership, and it might have decided to bring the female members of the band back quickly to cut off such reports,” Yang said.
