I believe that this is the case for all people in North Korea, it’s not just certain people but most people that want to be successful. I think it’s more of who has the opportunity to make it in this society. Theres many benefits when you are a highly intelligent person in North Korea. These are the types of people that they want in their party. Dr. Kim is a different type of person, she does not take non sense from anybody but at the same time has a tremendous heart for human life. She takes a lot of pride in the things that she does and this can put her in harms way against the regime. But then again I believe that her job and the importance of the lives that are entrusted in her hands is also a safeguard for what may seem to be an act of defience against the regime.
