② Story of N. Korean Defector and chestnut brand CEO Shin Gyeong-sun
③ N. Korea unveils rare photos of Kim Jong-un in teenage years
④ Remembering past Korean War anniversaries
On June 25, in time for celebrating the 72nd anniversary of the Korean War, residents of South Korea and North Korean defectors gathered to participate in an event, making fruit syrups for the Korean War veterans. We take a look at how the North educates its people about the war and see how we can narrow this difference in historical perceptions.
[Peace & Prosperity] also meets Shin Gyeong-sun, a North Korean defector who became a successful CEO, selling chestnuts here in South Korea. And finally, we take a look at the North’s intention of revealing some rare photos of its leader Kim Jong-un in his youth through a documentary about late Hyon Chol-hae, who served as general advisor to Pyongyang’s defense ministry.
