The Kidnapping of The Asian Filmmaker

A Story by Nathaniel Rego

Kidnapped alongside his ex wife, a foreign filmmaker is forced along with her to make movies for North Korean tyrant, Choy Young. After a few years in captivity, the two manage to escape.

In 1978, Hong Kong, China, foreign filmmaker, Shamazu Yuk, from South Korea, had been abducted by followers of North Korean dictator and tyrant, Choy Young. Also kidnapped had been his ex wife, Kim Jong Eel. Choy chosen them both to make hit movies for him since his country had been lacking motion pictures doing well in the box offices. Reluctantly, they accepted knowing that they would otherwise be executed since Choy usually refused to take no for an answer. 
After 7 years of their common ordeal, Shamazu and Kim came up with a plan of escape after making and releasing a hit North Korean spoof of Godzilla titled Pulgasarai; escaping into plain site in Europe and seeking refuge at the US Embassy there. Choy though less suspicious of their plan agreed with their idea to film in Europe but they had to be guarded 24/7 by his bodyguards.  
In 1985, the former couple fled a bodyguard and got into a taxi prone for the US Embassy in Vienna, Italy. The Embassy accepted their request for refuge and Kim and Shamazu were ultimately free. Soon enough, they moved to Los Angeles, California, for Shamazu to resume his filmmaking career.
