Since the Korean War in the 1950s, hundreds of thousands of people are believed to have escaped from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea AKA North Korea. These defectors undertake a perilous journey to leave the Asian country, one that has become even more difficult in recent years as authorities have more efficiently cracked down on these escape routes.
