Starting in 1959, the North Korean government began recruiting people to move to North Korea. So-ra Lee’s parents accepted North Korea’s offer. So-ra was born in North Korea, but her “songbun” was limited because her parents had immigrated there. After many trials and tribulations, she escaped to Japan in 2007.
So-ra will be speaking on January 19 at TNKR’s fourth “Understanding North Korea” forum, co-hosted with UniKorea.
