North Korea has banned mullets, nose piercings and skinny jeans

May 24, 2021


Apparently, these trends are way too capitalist for the country to allow.

According to the Daily Express, North Korea has issued new laws which ban mullets, skinny jeans and nose piercings. Certain members of the country’s youth league have been appointed as so call “fashion police” to ensure that citizens obey these rules – or else. According to the Daily Express article, these rules have been enacted because the trends are simply too capitalistic and American in nature for North Korea to simply sit back and allow their people to follow. North Korea wants to avoid any sort of Western lifestyle forming in its country.
