SIM Ep 749 Chops 257: Escape From North Korea

Jihyun Park's new book, The Hard Road Out, details how she escaped, not once, but twice, from one of the world's most repressive and secretive regimes: North Korea. She talks to Hannah about why, with the help of South Korean writer Seh-Lynn Chai, she's now chosen to tell her story, about brainwashing, escape, sexual exploitation, and a new life for Jihyun and her family in the UK.
