Dear Leader: Inside North Korea

A rare chance to hear a firsthand account of life in North Korea

Thanks to blogland, it'd be easy to think that all North Korea's leaders ever do is look at things and hold a parade or two, but to many, their dictatorial power and oppressive regimes are a reality. Tonight's a special event at Frontline, as Kim Jong-il's former court poet, Jang Jin-sung, will share his story on North Korea – its worlds of privilege, and its worlds of poverty and suffering. Having escaped in 2004, he is now editor-in-chief of New Focus International. He'll be joined by former british ambassador to North Korea, John Everard, and author Paul French. Best available seating.
