North Korean Death Camp Escapee's New Single

Shin Dong-hyuk in London

Via The Sun April 30, 2013

OoberfuseBorn and raised in hell on earth - Camp 14 Total Control Zone - escapee Shin Dong-hyuk has just released a new dance pop tune entitled "Vanish The Night". Working with England's well-known pop unit Ooberfuse, they wrote a song together that protests against Kim Jong Il. With this new release they hope to illuminate the North Korean government's infamous human rights violations and tell the world more about the murder and abuse that Shin witnessed first hand prior to his escape in 2005.
He said: “Our song is a message of hope for the ordinary people of North Korea whose suffering often goes unnoticed and whose cries are largely unheard.

“Don’t forget us.”
Well it is not quite as engaging as Psy's mega monster-sized worldwide hit Gangnam Style. But it is close and a damn good song with a great beat that you can dance to:

NOTE: This music video includes some grim footage. Viewer discretion is advised:

    When Ooberfuse plays this song on tour, they should bring in a guest DJ - Dennis Rodman!
