North Korea Has Their Own Girls’ Generation Group And It’s Creepy

By  | 

Who would have known?

In 2012, North Korean refugees told Channel A’s We’re Coming To Meet You that North Korea had their own girl group that was similar to Girls’ Generation.

Meet The Wang Je San Light Music Band, who are North Korea’s top girl group. They were personally selected by the late Kim Jong Il and like South Korean groups, they had years of tough training. Believe it or not, but the current leader’s (Kim Jong Un) wife is also in the band.

If you thought SM Entertainment’s 13 year contracts were bad, then wait for this. Once you have been selected to join a musical group, you are committing to the group for life. That’s a life-time contract.

The reason for this is because of security fears about government information leaking out of their circle.

The Wang Je San Light Music Band regularly perform on live broadcasts and as well as holding special concerts for the the North Korean military.

The group are insanely in sync and just how fast they can do a costume change makes it a bit creepy. We don’t think they will be making songs like Gee or I Got A Boy anytime soon.

    what is really creepy are all the south korean man/girl boys with fake dyed hair and wossy make-up lady gay boy outfits. Not too mention the fake white-chick wanna be korean women.

    North Korea is supreme and long live Great General Leader Kim Jong Il and the eternal father of Korea Kim Il Sung. Korea is one and these pansy boys will be destroyed!

    I don’t find this quite creepy. It’s not like other countries have the similar thing.

    Otherwise the quick changing and emotions on the groups face is creepy!

    China and Japan also have their own girl groups that are similar to girls generation.

    lol. Did you take it offensive. Well don’t. It’s just an article.

    i think they’re not creepy……. the syncronized moves are only natural to them because they are already professional dancers, so it means that although they learned it individually or by themselves, they can still improve that dance ‘coz they have their own “music sense”. And about that costume-thingy, when i play their video again and again, i found that they already wear the costumes from the beginning, it was only layered, as you can see once they change their costumes, it becomes longer to cover the last dress they wearing.

    Creepy?? There’s nothing creepy about it, sure it may be a different style than the ‘norm’ but you can’t judge that. this could be the ‘norm’ of NK.

    The title offends me. It’s not creepy, and it’s nothing like South Korea’s Girls’ Generation. The dance is very similar to Chinese dance and the music uses similar harmonies and melodies too, just that Chinese dance has more props and acrobatic dance, and different costumes. There are probably more dances that are similar to the one depicted in the video as well. I just hope people do not show disrespect to these girls because of where they’re from and just because they’re dubbed as creepy.

    They perform well and they look good. Too bad they live in the shit-hole known as North Korea.

    The dancers are like the Rockettes of Radio City Music Hall in NY. They are of same heights, dance is synchronized even their smiles. Though the Rockettes wears more sexy outfit.

    They are great. You can really see their natural beauty and talents compare to the South Korean Girl!s generation.

    Okay, I’m appreciating the performance – it was beautiful – But when was this produced??? Seriously, it’s like watching a public access channel, that is still using analog tape & Hi-Fi sound.

    Watch it again.
    The smiles are frozen. The synchronization is militaristic. When taken in context of where it is…yeah…creepy.

    I can’t find any ‘creepy’ parts here, they did great with those dress transformations. the only part they lacking is maybe the song, where is the song. they don’t sing. 🙂
    to simply say this creepy is too rude.

    I actually think its performance is amazing, even thought it has a 70’s feel.

    Creepy? Shooting down those children at school, strangling those cats. letting those hundreds of snakes die and rot in your house, intentionally forgetting your baby in your car that’s weigh too creepy, man, and all that happened in the. These are normal people giving their best this performance.

    To say that this is creepy is a baseless claim. Haven’t you watched cultural or artistic groups of other countries giving the same kind of performance?

  25. duh?!

    July 20, 2014 at 2:31 pm

    creepy? I think the writer is more creepy than what I have just watched!

    “”Every artist, everyone who considers himself an artist, has the right to create freely according to his ideal, independently of everything. However, we are Communists and we must not stand with folded hands and let chaos develop as it pleases. We must systemically guide this process and form its result.” ~ Vladimir Lenin.
    Looks like this is just…well…creepy. I keep expecting the camera to pan to the audience and see them chained to the chairs with their eyes propped open by some mechanical thing.
