  • North Korea's Lie

    The Kim Dynasty lives on in N. Korea and depicts a picture of power, affluence and good will, but it is all a lie. Beneath a seemingly happy people there is ignorance and hatred of the world outside simply because the regime says so. One word against a Kim means execution. Oppression and instillation of fear seems to be the norm of governing the people, till the accidental escape of a naive 17 year old girl into China opens an insight into what goes on in the country and what happens to defectors. After * years living as a fugitive and after many near denunciations as a defector she finally managed to seek asylum in S. Korea. She also managed to get her mother and brother out after an arduous journey through China and S. E. Asia and after many detentions in various prisons.

    A fascinating and harowing story. A first hand look into life inside comunist North Korea, and what defectors must go through, in order to reach a better life for themselves and their families.
