Speechless Nearly wordless I ve been to Oz but it s Mickey Mouse who rules as a god like Sun King the subjects know their lines perfectly to exalt His Majesty but if they miss a word or don t smile perfectly for the camera it means trouble Three generations will be sent to prisons with sadistic guards and wormy rice if lucky or the degenerate who betrayed the beautiful ruler will be executed publicly Everyone believes that they are the most fortunate people in the world they see movies which show the destitutedestructive pillaging white faces of the capitalistic West Witches attacking their homeland Absolute loyalty assures greatness the adored father god Mickey guarantees it and he is the forever hero living in a golden palace Looney Toones A country shaped on movie plots Yeah I do feel crazyThe Hermit Kingdom North Korea A famous South Korean actress and her husband covertly kidnapped to expand the greatness of Kim Jong IL s cinematic productions used initially to promote propaganda to the isolated citizens but now wanted to make profit enhance status show other countries how North Korea has evolved Maybe not SO speechless My husband What is going on after hearing expletives NO No no no OMG I can t believe it Oh my oh my Korea once had had an emperor and had historically been the target and victim of encroaching nations due to its strategic position During WWII the Japanese captured and demoralized the country but afterwards the USA and Soviets decided to split the country in half and act as stewards in its recovery This led to the first Kim IL Sung as dictator to his appointed son Kim Jong IL and to the present Kim Jong Un Their mandate was always to reunite both Koreas and led to the Korean War of 1950 1953 After eight years of being hostages in North Korea in various states of discomfort and luxury Madame Choi and Director Shin gained the Great Ruler s trust sufficiently to travel to Vienna lightly guarded Three years of judicious flattery movie making and careful observation led to their chance dash to freedom at the US Embassy in 1986 They were the first reliable witnesses of Kims habits and behavior to make their way into the hands of the American national security agenciesPaul Fischer has researched extensively and personally interviewed Madame Choi The information in this book is staggering though it seems to flow by as easily as humorous historical fiction at times Along with bankrupting the country and engaging in criminal activity for financing their personal gain the Kims sociopathy is chilling when considering their ideology known as juche To their people they are meant to be the absolute supreme Great Leader who must not be uestioned Media has been their means of inculcating the population and its capital city is its greatest stage In some ways I felt as though I was spying on something unforgivably illicit which was terribly sad disturbingly fascinating and psychologically twisted To understand North Korea s psyche and entrapment would take mind bending than I hope to ever deal with but A Kim Jong IL Production has certainly illuminated its image

Rs Together they made seven films in the process gaining Kim Jong Il’s trust While pretending to research a film in Vienna they flee to the US embassy and are swept to safetyA nonfiction thriller packed with tension passion and politics A Kim Jong Il Production offers a rare glimpse into a secretive world illuminating a fascinating chapter of North Korea’s history that helps explain how it became the hermetically sealed intensely stage managed country it remains toda. What do Americans know about North Korea For even the best informed among us the answer is sadly not much What we know or at least have been persuaded to believe comes largely from the testimony of the small but growing community of North Korean refugees Their experiences contributed to the revelations in three remarkable recent books a work of nonfiction Barbara Deming s Nothing to Envy Ordinary Lives in North Korea a captivating Pulitzer winning novel The Orphan Master s Son by Adam Johnson and Escape from Camp 14 One Man s Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West by Blaine Harden a Washington Post reporter s account of one survivor s story that has recently been called into uestion Now here comes a new entry on the shelf based on the amazing experiences of two famous South Koreans Shin Sang Ok and Choi Eun Hee who were kidnapped at the behest of a young Kim Jong Il and held captive for nearly a decade to build the North Korean film industryShin once South Korea s leading filmmaker and Choi the famous leading lady in many of his movies had been married but separated for several years when Choi was spirited off to Pyongyang by North Korean agents Shin was caught in the same trap in Hong Kong soon afterwards She accepted her fate from the outset he rebelled and twice tried to escape which landed him in the North Korean gulag for several almost unbearable years Then suddenly Kim at that time the heir apparent to his father Kim Il Sung the Great Leader of the Democratic People s Republic of Korea reunited the pair and elevated them into the directors of his film industry giving them virtual carte blanche to create films that would bring his country to the attention of the world s leading filmmakers Their increasing success which gave them ever freedom of action eventually provided them with an opportunity to escape to the WestTheir story exhaustively researched confirmed and documented by Paul Fischer should leave no doubt in anyone s mind that what they ve said is true Still ironically there are many in South Korea who refuse to believe them Despite overwhelming evidence of the truth of their account some insist that the kidnappings were staged to permit the pair to defect to the NorthBarbara Deming and Adam Johnson have done a superb job documenting the travails of the North Korean people and especially the unspeakable horror of the gulag erected to keep the Kim dynasty in power Fischer confirms their accounts So does Harden despite the aspects of his reporting that his subject has recently recanted However what is most memorable about A Kim Jong Il Production is the story that emerges about the rise of the Dear Leader who succeeded his father from obscurity to the throne The younger Kim we learn was primarily responsible for building the cult of personality around his father through public spectacle artful and consistent propaganda and yes film It was Jong Il who manipulated his entire nation into the mindless hero worship that persists to this day under his son and successorA Kim Jong Il Production is a worthy addition to the tiny collection of popular books that illuminate the darkness of North Korea It s also a great read
