If there is one thing that I know about the North Korean government is that it sure as hell does not like people leaving the country.
It’s one of those situations where the fences are for keeping people in more than they are for keeping people out.
This week, it was revealed that one of Kim Jong Un’s bodyguards defected last month and is seeking asylum in South Korea. This is bad news for the North Korean dictator.
According to reports, Peter Chung, head of Justice for North Korea, revealed that the bodyguard escaped by crossing the Chinese border on June 10. The soldier is only 17 years of age and was relatively new to his occupation. But he may still have some secrets up his sleeve.
Chung said the soldier “appeared to have some knowledge of South Korean culture and society before he entered military service.”
“He decided to leave North Korea owing to his dissatisfaction with the North Korean regime,” Chung added.
