Working under the guise of a Christian missionary, Kim spent her days at PUST locked in what she calls the school’s “prison disguised as a campus,” recording everything she experienced on USB sticks in secret. Her talks delve deep into the realities of her day-to-day life in North Korea and the psychology of the elite who were born, bred, educated in the land of the Great Leader—drawing from her experiences to reveal what it’s like to live in a world where everything is controlled, closely monitored, and centered on a single controlling figurehead. Kim had unprecedented access to a side of North Korean culture most foreigners never get to see, and her insights about the country’s culture, day-to-day mechanics of real life and its psychological effects on its citizens are as urgent as they are unsettling.
