Through hip-hop, Kang Chun-hyok raises awareness about conditions he escaped as a child. He has agreed to answer your questions about human rights, life as a defector and his music
Kang Chun-hyok is rarity; a young defector from North Korea who is forging ahead with a career as a rapper. He arrived in the South at the age of 16 – one of the 25,000 estimated to have made the journey over the past 20 years – and is now studying art at Hongik University whilst pressing ahead with his music.
He has said he has ambitions to be the best rapper out of North Korea – a career that few of his peers would ever even dream of pursuing. Music in the North, like much of the arts, is little more than a patriotic medium celebrating the state.
