Defector's book becomes best-seller in Korea

Defector's book becomes best-seller in Korea

The autobiography by Thae Yong-ho, a former North Korean diplomat who defected to the South with his family in 2016, is on display at Kyobo Book Centre in downtown Seoul on May 25, 2018, as the bookstore's No. 1 bestseller of the week. The book, the Korean title of which translates as "Secret Code of the 3rd Floor Room," gives accounts of the inside workings of North Korea and its leader Kim Jong-un's comments and views. The North labeled Thae as "human scum" after the book was released on May 14 in South Korea. (Yonhap) (END)
