Over 1,500 North Koreans Defected to South Korea Last Year

» by in: North Korea

There are still quite a few North Korean refugees being able to make it to South Korea despite the Chinese and North Korea crackdowns:

More than 1,500 North Korean defectors arrived in South Korea last year, the unification ministry said Monday, despite Pyongyang’s crackdown to stem the flow of defections.

The ministry, which handles inter-Korean affairs, said a total of 1,516 North Koreans settled in South Korea in 2013, up slightly from 2012 when 1,502 North Koreans arrived in the South, with women accounting for 76 percent of the total.

The ministry said South Korea is now home to 26,124 North Koreans.  [Yonhap]

The crackdown is still having an effect considering that in 2011 over 2,700 people defected to the ROK.

    #2,

    Don’t you have some important “engineering project” to attend to? I heard you were busy trying to make yourself a penis pump that works on land as well as underwater, you know, for when your lifelong dreams of “swimming” with dolphins and “riding” a unicorn come true.

    In 1995, a North Korean spy named Lee, Kwang-soo was caught in South Korea. He said there were 50,000 sleepers in South Korean already. Add to this the tens of millions of Anti-American South Koreans and we have a big f#$king problem. You know it’s bad when the South Koreans start telling pollsters that the bigger threat to South Korean security comes from their most trusted ally, the great United States of RED, WHITE, and mother$%king BLUE America.

    Right, because the most trustworthy person is a North Korean spy.

    I seem to recall some few movies about commie spies who made up stuff in order to stay in free countries and enjoy the pleasures of Capitalism…

    #6,

    The TV series ‘The Americans’ is somewhat like that, but I doubt that’s what you’re thinking of.

    Here’s one of the movies I was thinking about: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0055256/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_83

    But as to Congresscritters, look at anyone who called Iraq a quagmire or rushed to jugdement on our troops being genocidal. There were a few that really stood out. And look to those pushing limits on free speech or ownership of firearms.
