Hyeonseo Lee: My escape from North Korea

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thought her country was "the best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to ...
Seunggoo Choi's insight:

I know her. She's born in North korea, Hyeonseo Lee left for China in 1997. Now living in South korea, she has become an activist for fellow refugees.

She grew up in North korea but escaped to China in1997. In 2008 after more than 10 years there. She came to Seoul. Where she stuggled to adjust to life in the bustling city.

This story is very sad. A huge famine hit North Korea in the mid-1990s. Children have not food and They eating grass, bugs and  tree bark. I think that she's worth is respectful. She is strong. Now a student at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies.

North Korea threatens attack, including nukes, on U.S.

North Korea threatens attack, including nukes, on U.S. | Unification of the Korean Peninsula. | Scoop.it
North Korea’s military ratcheted up its threat to carry out a nuclear strike on the U.S. to new heights Thursday — just hours after the Pentagon announced the deployment of an American ballistic missile defense system to Guam.

 

 

North Korea’s military ratcheted up its threat to carry out a nuclear strike on the U.S. to new heights Thursday — just hours after the Pentagon announced the deployment of an American ballistic missile defense system to Guam.

Claiming that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” and that war could break out “today or tomorrow,” the General Staff of North Korea’s military claimed in a statement to the nation’s official government-run news agency that it has final approval to carry out “merciless” strikes on the United States.

 

The statement appeared to come in response to Washington’s decision to enhance U.S. military assets in the region and to the Obama administration’s own ramping up of rhetoric toward North Korea in recent days.

The escalation comes as senior administration officials say that they are searching for ways to defuse the situation, which also saw North Korea on Wednesday block South Koreans from accessing a border industrial park that has long stood as an important, albeit precarious, symbol of cooperation on the Korean Peninsula.

The State Department and Pentagon have suggested that a core part of the administration’s Korea strategy is to gently push on China to play a more active role in steering Pyongyang away from provocations and threats that may ultimately provoke military conflict.

But foreign policy insiders say the administration faces an uphill battle.

“Since the Chinese are the party that knows the North Koreans best and has the most comprehensive relationship with them, they clearly have leverage that I think the administration would like to see Beijing bring to bear,” said Scott A. Snyder, who heads the Program on U.S.-Korea Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations.

The catch, Mr. Snyder said, is that the U.S. and China see the North Korean problem differently.

The assertion made international headlines just after the Pentagon had announced the deployment of a land-based missile defense system to Guam, a U.S. island territory about 2,100 miles southeast of North Korea in the Pacific Ocean, where some 6,000 U.S. troops are stationed.

The deployment comes after a week of tough statements directed at North Korea by the Obama administration.

On Tuesday, Secretary of State John F. Kerry described recent threats by Mr. Kim as “reckless” and “provocative,” and vowed that the U.S. is prepared to “do what is necessary” to defend itself and its core allies in Asia.

And early on Wednesday, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters that Pyongyang’s recent posturing represents a “real and clear danger and threat” being taken seriously by Washington.

North Korea to 'launch missile TOMORROW' after warning foreigners to evacuate South as thousands stage war dance of death

North Korea to 'launch missile TOMORROW' after warning foreigners to evacuate South as thousands stage war dance of death | Unification of the Korean Peninsula. | Scoop.it

Thousands of North Koreans danced in honour of Kim Jony-Il todayPyongyang told foreigners and tourists to leave South Korea
North Korea said the two countries are on the eve of a nuclear war
Japan deployed missile interceptors around Tokyo in case of attackJointly run factory in Korean Demilitarized Zone remains closed todaySouth Korean President Park Geun-hye exasperated by 'endless vicious cycle' of hostile behaviour from North Korea

North Korea is preparing to launch a mid-range missile launch tomorrow from its east coast, officials in Seoul have claimed – hours after foreigners living in South Korea were warned to leave the country.

The chilling forecast came as thousands of North Koreans held a mass waltz today to celebrate the father of madman dictator Kim Jong-un. 

Women dressed in brightly coloured traditional costume danced with their partners in front of the Monument to the Foundation of the Workers' Party in Pyongyang. 

Meanwhile the Communist government issued a stark warning about the prospect of war, saying: 'We do not wish harm on foreigners in South Korea should there be a war.'

 

It added: 'The situation on the Korean Peninsula is inching close to a thermo-nuclear war. Once a war is ignited on the peninsula, it will be an all-out war, a merciless, sacred, retaliatory war waged by the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea).'

North Korea has warned all foreigners to evacuate South Korea today because the two countries are on the eve of a nuclear war - as Japan set up a huge new anti-missile system in Tokyo. 

 

Foreign companies and tourists in the South have been told to leave as Kim Jong Un continues to ramp up tensions on the Korean Peninsula. 

South Korean President Park Geun-hye said today that she is exasperated by the 'endless vicious cycle' of hostile behaviour from the North. 

Japan has responded to continuing threats from Pyongyang by deploying missile interceptors in key locations around Tokyo.

 

Yesterday, chief cabinet spokesman Yoshihide Suga said: 'We are doing all we can to protect the safety of our nation.'

North Korea has made repeated threats against Japan in the past weeks and there are fears the country, an ally of the U.S., would be in range of its missiles. 

Japan's Defence Ministry has deployed Air Self-Defense Force's PAC-3s as a precaution against possible ballistic missile tests. 

Analysts see the latest warning from the North's Korean Asia-Pacific Peace Committee as an attempt to raise anxiety in Seoul and believe a direct attack on the capital as unlikely. 

Observers say a torrent of North Korean prophesies of doom is partly meant to win Pyongyang-friendly policy changes in Seoul and Washington and to boost the image of leader Kim Jong Un.

 

Last week, North Korea told foreign diplomats based in Pyongyang that it will not be able to guarantee their safety as of Wednesday.

It halted work at a factory complex jointly run with its neighbour yesterday and 75 managers from the South are preparing to return home.

Only about 400 South Korean managers remained at the Kaesong industrial complex, just north of the Demilitarized Zone today. 

One manager said he and his colleagues are relying on instant noodles but plan to stay to watch over company equipment while food lasts. 

President Park said the closure of the facility will scare foreign investors away from the North.

 

She said: 'North Korea should stop doing wrong behaviour and make a right choice for the future of the Korean nation.' 

More than 120 South Korean companies operated at Kaesong and they issued a joint statement urging North Korea to reopen. 

'If this situation continues, companies will face the risk of going bankrupt,' said Yoo Chang-geun, a vice president of the Corporate Association of Gaesong Industrial Complex. 

After an emergency meeting on Tuesday in Seoul, representatives of the companies said in a joint statement that they hope to send a delegation of small and medium-sized companies to North Korea in hopes of reopening the complex. 

The statement also appealed to South Korea to take a 'mature, embracing posture' and work out all available measures to help normalize Kaesong's operations. 

Meanwhile, a shipping container was seen outside the North Korean Embassy in Ealing, London today, sparking rumours that the ambassador may soon be pulled out of the UK.

Its hard to say weather or not North Korea will follow through with their threats, as they are becoming more common. North Korea is backed into a corner, with no strong allies. Starting a nuclear war (if possible) would mean serious repercussions from surrounding countries and their allies. In my opinion, North Korea is trying to say that their powerful... But in todays society, there really isn't anything powerful about "dances of death" or marching your army around. However, I think that taking precautionary measures. such to the extent Tokyo has, is a wise move and in the best interest of civilians.

Great story Micah! However, looks like crisis was averted for the day?

Well, I sure am very glad that the missles were not launched! Hopefully Kim Jong Un is done with his threats now.
