Bradley Hope: Inside the Secret Mission to Overthrow the North Korean Regime

How did an Ivy League activist become a global fugitive?

Journalist Bradley Hope chronicles the heart-pounding tale of Adrian Hong, a self-taught operative who tried to bring down the North Korean regime.

In addition to helping asylum-seeking North Koreans escape across the border, Hong and his secret organization Cheollima Civil Defense (later named Free Joseon), began tracking the North Korean government’s activities and its volatile third-generation ruler, Kim Jong-un.

Hear more about the high-stakes events that led Hong to become one of the world’s most unlikely fugitives.
