North Koreans have been banned from drinking alcohol, laughing, shopping for groceries, or engaging in leisure activities for 10 days to mark the 10th death anniversary of former Supreme Leader Kim Jong Il.

North Koreans have been forbidden from laughing for ten days to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the death of former Supreme Leader Kim Jong Il. On Thursday, December 17, it will be ten years since his death.

The prohibition on laughing is one of the limitations put on North Koreans to commemorate the event. According to a resident of the border city of Sinuiju, North Koreans are prohibited from consuming alcohol, laughing, shopping for food, or indulging in recreational activities.

Any infringement of the rule during the 10-day mourning period may result in significant penalties, according to the citizen.

“In the past, many individuals who were discovered drinking or inebriated during the mourning time were jailed and treated as ideological criminals,” the nameless resident explained. “They were kidnapped and never seen again.” No one will be permitted to perform funeral rituals or ceremonies or to celebrate birthdays, during the period of mourning.

According to another source, the police issued a similar directive at the start of the month to guarantee a “proper tone” for the mourning period.

North Korea has scheduled a number of activities to honor Kim Jong Il’s life. These include a public exhibition of his photography and art, a concert, and a presentation of the ‘Kimjongilia,’ a flower named after him.
