South Korean exile

, April 30, 2013

Park Hee-sung, a 78-year-old North Korean former agent who has been held in the enemy South for close to half a century, pose for a photograph during an interview with Reuters at a charity house in central Seoul. A trim, neat man, Park is one of around two dozen North Korean operatives trapped in exile in affluent South Korea. He lives in a charity house in central Seoul with another former agent, 79-year-old Kim Young-sik, and dreams of the day he can return freely to the northern part of a unified Korea. - Reuters/Kim Hong-Ji
