👤 Hyeonseo Lee with Nick Bisley

Hyeonseo Lee’s dangerous journey out of North Korea, a story told in her memoir, The Girl With Seven Names, captured the attention of millions. Now, living in South Korea, she works to raise awareness of the plight of North Korean refugees, and also to act as a bridge between North and South. Shining a light on a country she calls the “darkest place in the world”, Hyeonseo Lee talks with Nick Bisley about human rights and refugees, and about what recent political developments might mean for her people.
