Opinion Yeonmi Park is on JRE but her North Korean story is full of many inconsistencies. Is she a grifter?

    There's something "off" about her situation (for want of a better descriptor). The proof to me is how all of a sudden she's making the rounds and getting interviews on various platforms. Additionally, note which platforms have her as a guest and you'll gain some valuable information...

    Well china owns or has major say in the mainstream channels. You think they'll have someone on saying they aren't great?

    I haven't listened to anything shes said, mainly because of the platforms she's a guest on and I can tell there's something going on with her message. Why she's shown up all of a sudden, I'm not sure...

    Any country you have to escape from sucks. Any country that doesn’t practice some form of democracy sucks.

    Plastic surgery is huge in South Korea. She probably got double-eyelid surgery.

    I watch videos from the "Dimple" channel on YouTube. They'll have North Korean military defectors sometimes talk about the comparisons of the U.S. military and N.K. military.

    looking up some of the most viewed videos involving her on youtube, i'd be surprised if most of her story isnt true, but i'd also be surprised if a lot of it has some embelleshment. she has clearly leveraged the attention and fame she has received for personal benefit. no knock on her for doing that, just that it makes it hard to trust details at surface value without doing a deeper dive.

    anyway, here is a video of north koreans trying american bbq. the things they say and the emotions they show to me seem very honest and believable.

    You can tell her message is off by not listening to her? Interesting talent...

    You're not even reading between the lines lol. You're literally making assumptions based on your own opinion.. absolutely nothing to do with her

    I think the original base of the story is true, but I think over time a bit of exaggeration is added to sustain the attention.

    There's no doubt that North Korea is oppressive to their citizens. If even 10% of what she says is true, it is worse than genocide.

    don't be so sure... of course it's my opinion, but it's informed by pattern recognition. believe what you want... either way, who cares?

    That it's racist not to let the immigrants on the Southern border in? Take your pick? Do I really need to reference that?
