They are only 8000 who succeeded The Great Escape, a dangerous journey throught China and South East Asia, going by a 10 000 kilometers roundabout way to reach the brother country, South Korea. More than 200 000 North Korean refugees are living illegally in China, in Yanbian area, on the border with North Korea. They are hidding from the Chinese police, waiting for their departure to Seoul. If they get caught, they will be returned to North Korea where death camps and firing squad are waiting for them. Today, Mr Park take a great risk for his life to help these refugees escape from China to South Korea. Every mission is like a payback for his own debt, the price of his freedom.
