DPRK Woman Interviewed upon Her Return Home
|Pyongyang, June 28 (KCNA) -- DPRK woman Pak Jong Suk was interviewed by Korean and foreign reporters at the People's Palace of Culture on Thursday.
She returned home after being taken away to south Korea.
Present there were media persons from the DPRK, the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan, China, Russia and the U.S.
Pak told about how she was taken away to south Korea.
She said she was residing in Rapuk-dong No. 1, Ranam District of Chongjin City, North Hamgyong Province. "I illegally crossed the border on the night of March 29, 2006 in a foolish hope of meeting my father who went to south Korea due to the A-bomb scare made by the U.S. imperialists during the Korean War and getting money from him", she said.
"I was taken in by the luring tactics of south Korean Intelligence Service agents in an alien land and handed over by them according to their scenario. This was how I was taken to south Korea at around 9 a.m. of June 29 of the same year", she added.
She recalled that while living in south Korea for six years she led a life little short of a miserable slave's for want of money.
Referring to the living conditions of the "defectors from the north", she said the jobs they could find at best were nothing but waste cleaning, vessel washing and servicing and other most hateful and difficult jobs.
The suicidal rate among them is five times that among other south Koreans, she said. They ardently wish to return to the DPRK, cursing corrupt south Korean society and reproaching themselves.
She spoke of what she felt after coming back to the DPRK on May 25 after diverting the watch of IS agents.
"A single misstep made me fall into a bottomless pitfall, leaving disgrace to my children. But my motherland injected life-giving water to me who might have become a forlorn wandering spirit," she noted.
"When I deplaned, quieting my thumping heart, I was stunned by the cordial reception given by officials concerned," Pak said, adding:
"I felt at that time how affectionate and great the motherland is to me.
I would have no more to desire before I die.
The dear respected Kim Jong Un did not blame me who did so many wrongs in the past but brought me under his warm care. He showed profound loving care for me.
Kim Jong Un made sure that I, little different from an offender, reside in Pyongyang with my son who is a teacher of Pyongyang Kim Won Gyun Conservatory and daughter-in-law.
I am neither a patriot nor a hero who made any tangible contribution to the country.
I am an ingrate who had betrayed my motherland to seek better living while others devoted themselves to building a thriving nation, tightening their belts.
I deserve punishment. But Kim Jong Un did not blame me but was so kind as to enable me to enjoy the greatest happiness. How can I forget this profound love and benevolence so long as l am alive.
The world does not know such tender-hearted leader as the dear respected General Kim Jong Un.
I was reborn thanks to Kim Jong Un identical to the great Generalissimos."
Pak, together with the son and daughter-in-law, sang a song "My Unforgettable Path," determined to remain intensely loyal to Kim Jong Un, the tender-hearted father of the great family of the country, generation after generation.
