Most people don’t realise that there is a big North Korean community living in Japan. After the Korean peninsula was devided into half in 1945, there were still hundreds of thousands of Koreans living in Japan. Some of them returned to Korea, but many of them stayed in Japan and live here until today. I visited director of Life Funds for North Korean Refugees NGO, Hiroshi Kato, and talked with him about the history of Japanese Koreans.
During the last Google Hangout, my first guest, Felix Abt, whom I interviewed this month, has sent me his answers to my questions as we didn’t have time to cover all the topics. He took a huge effort to answer to every one of my questions about North Korea. If you missed the live interview or you prefer reading than watching Youtube, you might find this interesting.
