2 editions published in 2015 in Dutch and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Van hofdichter tot staatsvijand. Het waargebeurde verhaal van een voormalige insider van het Noord-Koreaanse regime Jang Jin-sung werd op achtentwintigjarige leeftijd uitverkoren tot 'hofdichter' van Kim Chongil. Aan zijn relatief comfortabele leven als lid van de inner circle van de Noord-Koreaanse leider komt abrupt een einde als hij een geheim buitenlands boek uitleent aan een vriend die het vervolgens laat liggen in de metro. Omdat ze vrezen voor hun leven proberen ze enkele dagen later via China naar Zuid-Korea te vluchten, een uiterst gevaarlijke onderneming, met achterlating van hun familie, vrienden en alles wat ze ooit gekend hebben. Over de grens is het waargebeurde verhaal van Jang Jin-sungs gevecht voor vrijheid, verworven tegen een zeer hoge prijs. Een uniek boek waarin het Noord-Koreaanse regime voor het eerst van binnenuit wordt beschreven. Het werd vertaald en van een voorwoord voorzien door Remco Breuker, hoogleraar Koreastudies aan de Universiteit Leiden Bron: Flaptekst, uitgeversinformatie
Dear leader : North Korea's senior propagandist exposes shocking truths behind the regime by Chin-sŏng Chang( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dear Leader contains astonishing new insights about North Korea which could only be revealed by someone working high up in the regime. It is also the gripping story of how a member of the inner circle of this enigmatic country became its most courageous, outspoken critic. Jang Jin-sung held one of the most senior ranks in North Korea's propaganda machine, helping tighten the regime's grip over its people. Among his tasks were developing the founding myth of North Korea, posing undercover as a South Korean intellectual and writing epic poems in support of the dictator, Kim Jong-il. Young and ambitious, his patriotic work secured him a bizarre audience with Kim Jong-il himself, thus granting him special status as one of the 'Admitted'. This meant special food provisions, a travel pass and immunity from prosecution and harm. He was privy to state secrets, including military and diplomatic policies, how the devastating 'Scrutiny' was effected, and the real position of one of the country's most powerful, elusive men, Im Tong-ok. Because he was praised by the Dear Leader himself, he had every reason to feel satisfied with his lot and safe. Yet he could not ignore his conscience, or the disparity between his life and that of those he saw starving on the street. After breaking security rules, Jang Jin-sung, together with a close friend, was forced to flee for his life: away from lies and deceit, towards truth and freedom
Dear Leader : poet, spy, escapee-- : a look inside North Korea by Chin-sŏng Chang( Book )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this rare insider's view into contemporary North Korea, a high-ranking counterintelligence agent describes his life as a former poet laureate to Kim Jong-il and his breathtaking escape to freedom. "The General will now enter the room." Everyone turns to stone. Not moving my head, I direct my eyes to a point halfway up the archway where Kim Jong-il's face will soon appear ... As North Korea's State Poet Laureate, Jang Jin-sung led a charmed life. With food provisions (even as the country suffered through its great famine), a travel pass, access to strictly censored information, and audiences with Kim Jong-il himself, his life in Pyongyang seemed safe and secure. But this privileged existence was about to be shattered. When a strictly forbidden magazine he lent to a friend goes missing, Jang Jin-sung must flee for his life. Never before has a member of the elite described the inner workings of this totalitarian state and its propaganda machine. An astonishing expose; told through the heart-stopping story of Jang Jin-sung's escape to South Korea, Dear Leader is a rare and unprecedented insight into the world's most secretive and repressive regime."
