North Korean Refugees

Is it worth to escape from North Korea? I personally think it is if you’re starving to death and for the pursuit of freedom but it is told that once the North Korean government finds out one of your family members has escaped, all the other family members suffer great torture for the rest of their lives. That’s why many North Koreans attempt to escape with all their family members besides the fact that they don’t want to be separated. There have been many North Koreans who dream to live in South Korea but it is almost impossible to cross the North-South Korean border because of intense security and land mines that haven’t been removed since the Korean War ended in 1953. So they cross the Chinese-North Korean border. But what would happen if they get caught? There is no excuse-soldiers will shoot you right at the spot. But there are also corrupt North Korean soldiers who help these people out.

Check out the clips below. It’s truly devastating.
