(THE 7 CHOICES)If you were living in North Korea right now - trying to survive on a diet of rats, grass, soil and tree bark, quenching your thirst by drinking out of mud puddles in the ground - what would you do?There's also the conceivable chance of being sent to a political prison camp for years on end just because you innocently thought out loud one day to a bunch of friends (North Korean propaganda is strong), where you are then beaten, tortured, and left so hungry that you are forced to dig and consume the grains out of faeces, or the maggots from dead bodies just so you have the energy to perhaps last one more day.You'd probably wanna escape. But how?The North Korean government in Pyongyang refuses to let its citizens leave, a clear violation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, viewing North Korean defectors as traitorous criminals. Captured North Koreans would be subject to unimaginable torture and often public executions.If they are successful in their escape, then three to four generations of their family back home would be sent to North Korean prison camps to rot ....or worse. This is a strong deterrent.But this still doesn't stop desperate North Koreans from tempting fate. In this video, I'll go over the seven ways to escape the DPRK, including the most dangerous, the most unforgiving, the most unique, and the most unexpected.The North Korean border on the south side (ie. South Korean border / Korean DMZ) is the shortest distance to travel for safety and stability but as a result, the regime makes it dangerously hard. A North Korean escapee can be shot down by North Korean soldiers (border guards) or step on the many landmines in the area.The northern border to China has it's own set of challenges. Most North Korean refugees escape through this way, usually crossing the Tumen River border (like the famous North Korean defector Hyeonseo Lee). Once in China, the nightmare doesn't end there.There are also other, more unconventional ways you can try to escape such as through North Korean labor camps.Even if you make it to safety and resettle in a stable country, the North Korean regime will still try to hunt you down, so you're never truly safe. Especially if you're an outspoken critic or a threat to Kim Jong-un's power - just ask his half brother, Kim Jong-nam

    CLARIFICATIONS / EXTRA INFO:- The only way to 'take down the regime' as I mentioned at the end of the video is to help disseminating as much information about South Korea and the rest of the world to everyday North Koreans, so they can create their own 'Korean Spring' uprising and revolution. Change must start internally.- To the people who keep saying the video is useless/stupid because internet is banned in North Korea & North Koreans wouldn't be able to see it - you're not supposed to take the...

    He is the Hitler of this generation. Diabolical mad and sinister.

  • @Ami Dube As much as invading North Korea would be great for the people, it's not the best idea as there's already a lot of tension surrounding it. If say America were to do it, Russia joins, China joins, the West joins, South America and Africa go revolutionary and everything falls apart. WW3 is too dangerous to start, and if it does (unfortunately inevitable) it will be the end of us all.

    My passed wife was snuck out 1960, she was a newborn baby. Her life story should be a movie. We miss her deeply 💙💔

  • @Michael Angelo I'm really sorry to hear that, and I hope her loss hasn't impacted you too deeply. All the best for your future.

    Her and brother got separated at this point. She was less than a year old and had shrapnel in left side of her body. One peice went through her ear and came out through her cheek.
