Nine-year-old Song Hyun has traveled further in his short life time than most of his fellow North Koreans. It’s hard to imagine what the journey was like for someone his age, but he’s fortunate to have escaped North Korea and found his family, who he was temporarily separated from, once entering in to China.
When talking to Song Hyun, he seems like any other kid his age. As soon as LiNK staff introduced him to ʺAngry Birds,” he was hooked, and he enjoys playing outside with toy animals. Once, he made believe that they were fighting each other and one by one, they went flying in different directions. It must have been hard for him to not be able to go outside freely while living in China and during the escape to freedom, where he had to keep quiet though not fully comprehending the significance of his journey. Now he lives in South Korea and is able to play freely!
