"In 2018, I was fortunate to have a rare opportunity for someone born and raised in South Korea: I was able to visit North Korea as a tourist. I have now enjoyed two trips to North Korea. I shared food and stayed in the homes of some of my generous North Korean neighbours. If you ask me what North Korea was like, I will say without hesitation, "I have friends there." I look forward to sharing some of the things I learned and specific changes in my perspective on North Korea between what I felt and believed before and after my trips." - Jae-eyon Chung
