② Coaching the Minds – N. Korean Defector and Counselor Kim Hye-seong
③ N. Korea Promoting Kim Il-sung’s Guerrilla Resistance against Japan
④ Mass National Exchanges of 1990
As a way to celebrate and commemorate the 77th anniversary of Korea’s Liberation Day, a peace concert took place at Imjingak. We listen to the message of coexistence carried by the tunes and also find out how similar the two Koreas indeed are by looking around a photo exhibition with photographs of Goryeo Dynasty cultural relics unearthed from both Koreas.
We also meet with North Korean defector Kim Hye-seong, who is working as a poet, a counselor and the head of a volunteer group,... while also looking into how the North Korean regime is using Kim Il-sung’s anti-Japanese resistance movements as a way to justify its hereditary succession. And finally, we find out about what the ‘mass national exchanges period’ declared in 1990 was.
