A Kim Jong II Production

Hosted by

Kim Jong-Un’s father, Kim Jong II, was a huge fan of American films. He wanted to build a North Korean film industry that would rival Hollywood’s. His solution? Kidnap one of South Korea’s most-famous directors along with his actress ex-wife. We hear the story from Paul Fischer, author of “A Kim Jong-II Production: The Extraordinary True Story of a Kidnapped Filmmaker, His Star Actress and a Young Dictator’s Rise to Power.”
