So, they'll be seriously on the fence about defecting to South Korea?

Did you heard about the East German pole-vaulting champion? He became the West German pole-vaulting champion.

North Korea should have a Running Man-esque game show where a defector has to run the gauntlet and fight enemies and if he wins he gets to defect

Could be a ratings hit

South Korean officials questioned the man's story, as well as his motives for crossing the border. To prove he was capable of hopping the fence, officials had him jump twice in their presence

Hard core. In America they just ask who won the World Series in 1940.

I was going to mock your idea with a picture of a family staring at a wall but Wikipedia set me straight.  "A study in 2017 found that 98% of households had a television set."  I guess it's like 'murricans and their refrigerators.
