I have told you a story before about me Escaping to North Korea, well it's the truth even though I am being doubted. but we went to a lot of places before i finally landed in the Philippines. after NK, we went to the outer border of China, but i escape with a MAp to look for other places. then, I was able to ride a cargo with people noticing because the crew was drinking beer or alcohol together... I sneaked in and slept there for weeks, and then same night but the security was light and i was able to get out of the cargo ship. i land in this very foreign country that People call Pilipphines.. I was able to get help from other Koreans who stay in the Philiphines..they couldn't believe it until i showed them important ID's that only North Koreans used.. I am currently working as a Janitor, or partime bartender, just to keep myself low profile...i speak a bit good english because the one i went to was one of my old friends who got a way from NK years ago who is also staying in the Pillphines. it's a New World to me. Good bye, my GF, goodbye North Korea... and F*ck U Kim Jong Ill!

Wow, that is one story. What about the rest of your family? Are they still there? Are you thinking of helping them get out? Have you applied for a refugee status? I hope you settle well in the Philippines. They are hospitable people but just the same, watch your back. You are still a foreigner there.

WELCOME to your new HOME I have many S.Korean friends and they told some stories like yours but most likely they ended up in China or Japan..but you are here. I hope you start a new life here and build your own family..it's really sad to be separated from your love ones but it's much better than you suffering in your own land.

Are you from North Korea, my friend. If you are...I think that is a new of life that you should be celebrated. Because North Korea, is a country of isolation and a people their like prisoners. I count North Korea, a largest prison on earth. Because people their is not free to do what they wanted to do but only those like of their leaders Kim Jong ill... I pity those people reside in North Korea, they are not experience being free. They don't have the right to dreams for their future but their leaders dreams about their fate... I can't read your story before, my friend. But i feel how hard to live in that country. Their is no fairness of the government. No God, but the President. People there is ignorant about anything in these world. People there is like a robot. That whatever the President want, that is right for them...Not what they like or dislike because no one will oppose to the President will..A curse country. Are you happy when you are there? Do you have dreams when you are there?
