North Korean defector “shocked by kindness” in the U.S.
A North Korean defector said he was “shocked” by the kindness he encountered when he first visited the United States because his home country portrays U.S. citizens as “people who torture and kill.”
“The U.S. is not just bad,” Kim Geum-Hyuk, who now lives in Seoul, South Korea, said in an interview with the YouTube channel DIMPLE. “America is a complete enemy for North Korea. They taught us to fight Americans until the end. I also was one of the victims of brainwash education so I had hostility toward America.”
