Deported for Dear Antlers
Ms. Lee was born in the late 90s in Musan, Hamkyungbookdo. She lost her mother at a very young age, and lived with her father, and sick grandfather. There is a home remedy in Korea that ‘deer antler’ is a cure for almost every illness. Having heard about this, her father looked for a seller, and found one. The seller asked for a commission, and introduced him to another individual who sold deer antlers in small portions.
Her grandfather was getting well, but soon great problems came upon the family. In North Korea, all valuable products including ginseng and deer antlers are for the Kim, the dictator’s family, making these transactions illegal. The police started investigation, and discovered the father possessed illegal and lofty items.
Ms. Lee’s family was deported to a remote area during the winter season. These treacherous conditions were unbearable and soon the sick grandfather died, and her father was diagnosed with gastric cancer.
She left North Korea 4 years ago, when she was just a teenager. Ms. Lee was sold to Han Chinese, and lived like a bird in cage.
She endured those years, and found NAUH. She is on her way to South Korea to discover a life of freedom.
