A Kim Jong-Il Production: TheExtraordinary True Story of a Kidnapped Film maker, His Star Actress and aYoung Dictator’s Rise to Power by Paul Fischer.
This book chronicles the hardships, excesses, corruption and atrocities that took place in North Korea under the present incumbent’s grandfather and father. After reading this, I decided Kim Jong-Un did not have much chance of turning out normal.
As the subtitle indicates, it tells the true story of a South Korean filmmaker and an actress who are kidnapped to satisfy movie-obsessed Kim Jong-Il’s compulsion to make propaganda movies.
I found this book, at times scary, at times harrowing but mostly a fascinating glimpse inside this extraordinary dynasty.
