North Korean state media has urged its young people against using slang from South Korea and told them to speak North Korea’s standard language.
There were also fresh warnings in North Korea’s official newspaper against adopting the fashions, hairstyles and music of South Korea.

Those found in breach of the law can face jail or even execution.
