Pyongyang, August 22 (KCNA) — A South Korean Pak Song Hun, 29, defected to North Korea across the Military Demarcation Line in the eastern sector of the front on Aug. 21.
Hailing from Rohwa-up, Wando county, south Jolla Province, he worked as a builder in Yongdungpho district, Seoul, and lost his job before defecting to the north.
He said the poor are unable to work and live in South Korean society where elementary freedom and dignity of humanity are trampled underfoot. He had long yearned to defect to the north where all the working people lead a happy life, he added.
