    Family, Childhood, and Education

    Her father, Park Jin-Sik, was a civil servant who worked at the Hyesan town hall as part of the ruling Workers’ Party, and her mother, Byeon Keum Sook, was a nurse for the Korean People’s Army. Her father was imprisoned for smuggling and her elder sister Eunmi escaped to China shortly before the rest of the family. Her father died of colon cancer while she and her mother escaped to China. She eventually reunited with her mother and sister in Seoul, South Korea.

    She attended Dongguk University Seoul Campus. She went to the USA for her higher education and attended classes at Barnard College and finally got enrolled at Columbia University of General studies to study economics.

    Career

    Park has written and spoken publicly about her life in North Korea, has written for the Washington Post, and has been interviewed by The Guardian and for the Australian public affairs show Dateline. Park volunteers for such activist programs as the Freedom Factory Corporation, a free-market think tank in South Korea. She has also become a member of LiNK, a U.S. nonprofit organization that rescues North Korean refugees hiding in China and resettles them in South Korea and the United States. On 12 to 15 June 2014, Park attended LiNK’s summit at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California. Park and North Korean activists Joo Yang and Seongmin Lee worked in sessions and labs, informing participants of conditions in North Korea and of how LiNK can support refugees from North Korea. Park took part in LiNK’s campaign, the Jangmadang.

    She has also been outspoken about tourism in North Korea, as visitors are encouraged to bow to statues of Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung, which she sees as “the regime’s propaganda by allowing themselves to be portrayed as if they too love and obey the leader.” She was selected as one of the BBC 100 Women in 2014 and is a member of the Helena Group. She worked as a co-host for Casey Lartigue, a talk show host of the podcast-show North Korea Today. The podcast discusses North Korean topics and the lives of refugees after their escapes. Park volunteered for this opportunity to further her activism. Together, Lartigue and Park hosted five episodes of the podcast. She has told the story of her escape at several well-known events, including TEDx in Bath, the One Young World summit in Dublin, and the Oslo Freedom Forum. Some commentators have noted inconsistencies in her North Korean stories. Mary Ann Jolley of The Diplomat has noted “serious inconsistencies” too contradictory refutations on several occasions. In an online update, Park claimed that many of the discrepancies in her quotations came from her limited English skills at the time, adding that, too, “childhood memories were not perfect.” 38 North has noted that some critics, including other North Korean refugees, have accused Park of embellishing her accounts or appropriating elements from others’ escape stories.

    At a 26 April 2021 speaking engagement at Texas Tech University, Park stated that speech criticizing the North Korean Supreme Leader is now a crime in South Korea, possibly referring to South Korea’s passing of an amendment to the “Inter-Korean Relations Development Act” prohibiting South Koreans from sending, amongst other things, anti-Pyongyang leaflets, auxiliary storage devices, and money or other monetary benefits to North Korea. She has criticized political correctness in the United States, saying, “They are forcing you to think the way they want you to think. I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying,” and adding that “America is not free”. Many North Korean defectors’ accounts of North Korea, both good and bad, contradict the claims Park has made. She has been accused of exaggeration and tall tales by some.

    She believes that there are positive and negative possibilities for North Korea to be reunified with South Korea. She believes that there are neither northerners nor southerners in Korea, just Koreans themselves. She believes that change might occur in North Korea as long as she and other North Korean defectors advocate for human rights there. According to the National Review, Park presumes that “the regime adjusts, as the Chinese Communists and the Vietnamese Communists have done. That would allow the North Korean Communists to hang on for untold years longer.” Therefore, the Kims would be able to focus on their people, and then, they would be able to become more open to the world. Park also believes that the Jangmadang, the black market of North Korea, will transform or develop the country’s society because it provides wide access to outside news media and information. According to Park, “If I ever return to a reformed North Korea, I will be thrilled to meet my peers as we attempt to bring wealth and freedom to people who were forced into poverty by the Kim family dynasty.”

    Park considers Kim Jong-un to be a cruel leader for continuing the abuse of his people. She has said that “He is a criminal. He is killing people there. After he got the power, he killed 80 people in one day for watching a movie or reading the Bible. This young man is so cruel. He ordered that people who attempt to escape should be shot.
