② First N. Korean Defector and Attorney Lee Yeong-hyeon
③ Performances to Mark N. Korea’s Founding Anniversary
④ 1st Inter-Korean Red Cross Talks in 1972
North Korea has made clear that it will never give up its nuclear ambitions, even passing a legislation to govern its use of nuclear weapons. We take a look at how laws are written in North Korea and why, at this point, it has legalized the use of nuclear arsenals.
We meet with Lee Yeong-hyeon, a North Korean defector, who is also the first-ever attorney from the North, helping his fellow North Korean refugees to resolve and deal with difficult legal matters.
Meanwhile, we look at how Pyongyang spent its 74th founding anniversary this year while also traveling back to 1972 when the first inter-Korean Red Cross meeting was held.
