My escape from North Korea | Hyeonseo Lee 5
UCAuUUnT6oDeKwE6v1NGQxug


As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thought her country was "the best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 14, to begin a life in hiding, as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope -- and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind.

Seriously? Her life was in danger and now some people are just talking about her English?

For everyone commenting about her accent. This woman is stronger and smarter than most of you. She speaks Chinese, most likely multiple dialects, Korean, English, and who knows what other languages. She is a living legend for what she went through. This woman has all the features I would look for in a wife, smart, cunning, brave, self reliant, beautiful, and strong. I hope this woman achieves all her dreams, she deserves it.

I see you guys talking about how people are talking about how bad her accent is, but I can't find any people talking about her accent. However, her accent isn't even that bad, I personally find it nice to listen too. So I don't know why y'all talking trash.

"I am not helping you, I'm helping North Koreans" - what a beautiful act. I hope I could do it for someone someday.

Imagine how nervous she is after escaping the most dangerous country in the world, learning the two hardest languages and then talking to thousands of people in a country that she was told was evil when she was young

she spoke without a script. And broken English means she knows another language. And perfect Chinese to convince the Chinese police she was Chinese. What do you losers (those who criticized her English) know?
