I wonder if the north is doing this because the defector organizations in the South are achieving such positive influence effects sending CDs and USBs to the north.  Perhaps this is an indicator that information and influence activities are being effective in the north.  And of course imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Thousands Of North Korean Propaganda Leaflets Found In Eastern City

GANGNEUNG, South Korea, May 18 (Yonhap) — Thousands of North Korea’s propaganda leaflets were found in the eastern city of Gangneung on Thursday, police said, in the latest propaganda campaign carried out by the reclusive regime against the South.

Police said about 5,000 leaflets were found near a construction site in the city, some 230 kilometers east of Seoul, around 11 a.m. They carried messages criticizing former President Park Geun-hye and celebrating the 105th birthday of Kim Il-sung, the late founder of the country and the grandfather of its leader Kim Jong-un, which was last month.

Along with the leaflets, CDs and USBs with content glorifying the North Korean regime were also found, according to police.

Police said the leaflets are currently under a detailed examination.
