Kim Jong-un's ex-girlfriend was among a dozen well-known North Korean performers who were executed by firing squad on Aug. 20, reports said Wednesday.
Sources in China said singer Hyon Song-wol as well as Mun Kyong-jin, head of the Unhasu Orchestra, were arrested on Aug. 17 for violating North Korean laws against pornography and were executed in public three days later.
The victims of the atrocity were members of the Unhasu Orchestra as well as singers, musicians and dancers with the Wangjaesan Light Music Band.
They were accused of videotaping themselves having sex and selling the videos. The tapes have apparently gone on sale in China as well.
A source said some allegedly had Bibles in their possession, and all were treated as political dissidents.
A source said, "Kim Jong-un has been viciously eliminating anyone who he deems a challenge to his authority." The executions "show that he is fixated on consolidating his leadership."
Claims are being made by the South China Morning Post that singer Hyon Song-wol was gunned down in front of her family just three days after being arrested for breaching North Korean pornography laws, South Korea's largest daily newspaper reported.
Hyon, who first met Kim about a decade ago, was among a dozen well-known performers executed with machineguns.
"They were executed with machine guns while the key members of the Unhasu Orchestra, Wangjaesan Light Band and Moranbong Band as well as the families of the victims looked on," a source said.
The families of the executed have allegedly been sent to prison camps under the rogue country's guilt by association laws.
Kim and Hong dated until his despot dad Kim Jong-il ordered their relationship to end.
They were rumoured to be having an affair despite eventually marrying other people, with Kim's new wife Ri Sol-ju herself a former member of the Unhasu Orchestra.
