It was reported that even schoolyards were visited to look for girls for Kim Jong-Un, and the selected girls were checked for their political status and subjected to strict health checks. Kim Jong-Il, Kim Jong-Un's father, believed that sexual intimacy with young girls would give him "immortality".

Yeonmi Park, a North Korean defector, has made very controversial allegations about her country's leader Kim Jong-Un. The young woman said that leader Kim Jong-un selects 25 virgin girls each year to join his grisly "Pleasure Team".

POLITICAL AFFILIATION SELECTION CRITERION

According to Yeonmi Park, women are selected based on their appearance and political commitment to the country. Park claimed that she was twice considered to serve Kim Jong-Un and his party colleagues but was not selected due to her "family status".

Park said, "They even go to schoolyards to find a pretty girl. When they find beautiful girls, the first thing they do is to check their family status, their political status. They eliminate girls who have family members who fled North Korea, who have relatives in South Korea or other countries."

THEY UNDERGO STRICT HEALTH CHECKS

The process then continues with a medical examination of the young girls to verify their virginity.

Those who pass this stage face another rigorous check, where they are examined for defects such as small scars anywhere on the body. This intense scrutiny leads to the selection of "only a handful of girls from all over North Korea" who are then transferred to Pyongyang.

THEIR ONLY GOAL IS TO PLEASE KIM JONG-UN

According to Park's claim, once selected, these girls' sole purpose is to please Kim Jong-Un.

The late North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, who was also Kim Jong-Un's father, believed that "sexual intimacy with young girls would give him immortality". He died in 2011 of a massive heart attack at the age of 70.

FOUNDED 50 YEARS AGO

Kim Jong-Il allegedly conceived the idea of this "Pleasure Squad" in the 1970s. He selected beautiful women and placed them in vacation spots visited by his father Kim Il-Sung. In 1983, Kim Jong-Il created a second "Department of Joy" for his own use.

"HE CHOOSES WOMEN WHO LOOK WESTERN"

The composition of the "Pleasure Squad" changed over the years, because all three men had different tastes in women. Kim Il-Sung allegedly had a more traditional taste in women, because he was older, so he had his own group.

Kim Jong-Il also had his own "taste team".

Their body types were slightly different. Kim Jong-Il preferred tall women because he was very short.

Kim Jong-un allegedly tends to choose more "thin" women for his personal entourage and prefers taller, more "western-looking" women.

PLEASURE TEAM SPLITS INTO 3

There are rumors that Kim Jong-Un's wife is actually on the "Pleasure Team".

The "Pleasure Team" is divided into three separate groups. One group is trained in massage, another specializes in singing and dancing for the entertainment of Kim Jong-un and his close friends. The third group is tasked with the "sexual activities department": They are supposed to have sexual intimacy with Kim Jong-un and the men around him.

FAMILIES HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE

Specially selected girls are assigned to serve Kim, while others are assigned to please lower-ranking generals and politicians.

In North Korea's desperate conditions, parents reportedly consent to their daughters joining the "Pleasure Squad", seeing it as a way to guarantee that they will not starve to death. By their mid-twenties, members of the team are considered past their "prime" and are often married off to one of the leader's bodyguards.
