A Chinese TV series with the theme of anti-Japanese guerrilla war during the Second World War is being broadcast on Pyongyang's television screens, drawing great attention from viewers.
"Di Hou Wu Gong Dui (guerrillas in the enemy's rear guard), produced by CCTV in 2005, is currently being broadcast on prime-time TV by the Korean Central Television Program (KCTP) of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).
Xinhua correspondents in Pyongyang saw many people gathering before televisions in public places, watching the series attentively. "It's very interesting. I'm very eager to know how the story goes on," a woman said.
The KCTP often televises foreign TV series and films, with those coming from China and Russia accounting for the largest amount.
To commemorate the 110th anniversary of the birth of Chinese former Premier Zhou Enlai, the KCTP televised Chinese films on three successive days starting from March 5, including "Nanchang Uprising" and "Zhou Enlai".
Chinese TV series adapted from masterpieces such as "Romance of the Three Kingdoms", "Outlaws of the Marsh", "Dream of the Red Chamber", also enjoyed popularity in the DPRK.
"I like those historical films, from which I can acknowledge the history of the Chinese revolution," said an official working at the central committee of the Workers' Party of Korea.
