Event description
TNKR's "Voices from the North" project will be featuring North Korean refugee Jihyun Park at a special online forum on October 30th.

About this Event

What is it like living in hell? Jihyun Park says she knows. She escaped from North Korea in 1998, shortly after North Korea had gone through a terrible famine and people were still starving.

What is it like to escape one hell, only to be returned to the previous one? China was also terrible for Jihyun, as she was a victim of sexual trafficking.

Then she was captured and sent back to North Korea.

At last, in 2008, she escaped hell, making it to the U.K.

What has her life been like since then?

• She is the author of the recently released book “Two Koreans” (published in French).

• Asia Women Achievement Award (2018 Natwest's Chairman's Award)

• Alternative Rich List (The Sunday Times)

• Amnesty Brave Award 2020

On October 30th, Jihyun will be telling her story about her escape from North Korea, then answering questions from attendees about North Korea.
