N.K. reruns documentary on defector's father

This photo captured from a documentary aired on Aug. 21, 2016, on the North’s Korean Central TV shows O Peak-ryong (R), the father of the wife of a diplomat who recently defected to South Korea. The father, who died in 1984, has been repeatedly praised as a compatriot of North Korea’s founder Kim Il-sung who together engaged in guerrilla warfare against Japanese colonial forces. His daughter O Hye-son had defected to the South with her husband Thae Yong-ho, a minister at the North Korean Embassy in London, and their children. The documentary made no mention of her.
