Convincing the world there is a problem in North Korea is a difficult task.
See short documentary segments about the plight of NK refugees in China here (the two video links are at the bottom of that blog post)… the videos are heart-wrenching in a couple of places.
A new docudrama movie was just released in South Korea, called Crossing. Looks to be phenomenal, I’ll have to see it when I pass through Seoul on my way back to the US. Hopefully this will stir up South Koreans at least to caring about the plight of their own people in the North, before many more people die.
And in almost completely unrelated news, NK detonated the cooling tower of their Yongbyon nuclear reactor on Friday. (In other words the government has now achieved its purpose of using the reactor as a bargaining chip for food and energy aid, and have secured another steady source of refined plutonium that they can continue making weapons with.)
