North Korea blasts South's 'insulting' dramas and films

Cross-border rom com
The other possible target of the tirade is TV series Crash Landing on You which has become the latest Korean drama smash hit.
 
The romantic comedy tells the story of a South Korean heiress who accidently crash-lands in North Korea while paragliding. Her rescue by a North Korean army officer sparks a love story in the backdrop of the inter-Korean division.
 
The series has been praised for its well-researched and nuanced portrayal of North Korea - something achieved by having a real life North Korean defector as one of the writers.

Some in the South have also criticised it for glamorising the country's reclusive neighbour as a peaceful and liveable place , but viewers in the North might have a different take.

North Korea is depicted as an underdeveloped country where people live with frequent power cuts while the elite enjoys a privileged life.
