I have watched multiple documentaries on North Korea and the daily life within the country, the strict laws, and the consequences. Still, I can't even begin to fathom what it feels like to be in a communist country! Thank you, Anthony, for doing this. I Spent a Day With North Korea Defectors! It has opened my eyes even more than it already was.

Reminds me of the stories how people my father knew fled former eastern Germany (GDR / DDR)... that was only 32 years ago. Dad grew up in that horrible regime, and still carries scars to this day.

Any time someone complains about their freedoms in a Free country, They gotta shut up and understand there are still countries where your freedom is something you may not ever have! Thankyou for making this heard! I hope one day the North may be as free as the South. Thankyou Anthony!

This has been the most in raged I have ever been. This is absolutely immortal and this needs to end! I which I could help, at this point it would take every country to gang up on North Korea to get them to stop but then there is the threat of nuclear war. I just want to do something but I can’t.

I'm happy these women made it out safely. For a lot of defectors the escape isn't over when they cross into China. These brokers will often times sell women into sex trafficking in China, and the Chinese government cooperates with NK to return defectors so they are still not safe in China.

i know the last segment where lucy was talking about the hamburger was meant to be a moment of brevity, but i can't help but be sobered by the fact that these basic human rights... the right to ENJOY their favorite FOODS of all things is not available to those in north korea. as a korean-american, i am grateful to realize the privilege it is to listen to the stories of my brothers and sisters across the DMZ from the comfort of my own home. shout out to both lucy and cherie for their bravery and they should be rewarded with as much as possible with the hamburgers and other little delights of life out there.

Having to clean up any blood at hospital from birth so bring a mop ( another woman shared her story) that's how they treat the woman and 99.9 % of people .I believe it was someone on cheries channel or related . So much joy for these beautiful ladies for making it out .

North Korea is the dystopian future of our nightmares. And people are living there right now. This is fucked. We need to bring down the Kim family, but think about the people who’ve been brainwashed by their government, they’ll just think that we’re even more evil than they already do

It does go to show how powerful of a community we have in the United States. So many people who are able to own firearms, have freedom of speech, and even though it doesn’t seem like it, a lot of people have a lot of love and help to give. All these things prevent the government from infringing on our rights. We really are somewhat privileged over others. Things could and should be better though.

If you only really knew what goes on there... You have to wear what you're told! You can only have limited hair styles. There's no internet! Even on the cell phones if you're lucky to have one. The list goes on and on! Oh and this year mother's day has been removed! If you're house has a fire you must save any and all photos! Or you're done! Go educate yourself!

These stories put me in tears. There’s no reason these people should have to live like this. Mad respect to the people who have escaped and have gone through lifetimes of trauma for their freedom… they deserve it as they are the strongest people I’ve ever seen. They are still smiling and fighting for their people.

i have parents who grew up in heavily communist china (the cultural revolution era and such), and my mom was watching part of this with me and she said "this was like my childhood." it's so saddening that so many people have been under power/greedy governments.

I have mad respect for anyone who escaped North Korea because it is almost physically impossible for the majority of the public of North Korea to escape because it takes lots of strategic planning and lots of hard traveling and even if they do they could risk all of their family being tortured and killed if they don't bring them with them, plus majority of the surrounding countries other then Mongolia, Thailad and South Korea *which is completely unrealistic to get too tbh* will deport them back too North Korea and they will be tortured and killed

The fact that most people are forced to work all day in the military and then have to go searching for food in the evening because the government make everyone starve. After doing that all day you could have no time to polish the kim portraits. And doing all of that everyday, working hard and searching for food... trying to survive in that terrible country and then the government could come into your house and find dusty pictures of the presidents and send you to labour camp. Absolutely INSANE.

muy interesantes historias tristes pero ciertas en cuanto un régimen dictador como lo es corea del norte, quisiera que ese tipo de vida y política caiga pero lamentablemente todo tiene un precio si eso llega ocurrir y solo se puede desear que la sangre que se derrame no sea de muchas personas, eso solo el tiempo lo dirá.
