North Korea Cracks down again on ‘Capitalist’ fashion

Last month, the Youth League has called citizens imitating foreign fashion as ‘capitalist flair’ and is now cracking down on youth wearing capitalist fashion and hairstyles. Foreign fashion includes tight pants, t-shirts with foreign words, or having hair longer than a certain length. 

If caught, they must wait on the side of the road until the patrol finishes its crackdown, then they are taken to the youth league office district to confess their crimes. After that, they have to call their relatives to bring acceptable clothes to be released.
