Former North Korea political prisoner Jung, Gwangil initiated a project called "No Chain" to create songs that are almost the same as the new songs being played in the state-run broadcast. The songs are recorded in USBs, which then are transported back to North Korea, and become "an invisible gospel."
Jung, Gwangil said in the North Korean network The Guardian that music is the integrating battlefield North Korea uses to control people's hearts and wars. Jung uses music to truly release people's hearts. Through "No Chain," he created and recorded 32 songs that are almost the same as the new songs in the state-run radio broadcast. The only difference is that the leader's name in his songs is replaced by Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
He stressed that his purpose is not to transform the country, but he hopes that the people can see the world through a new religious way of thinking while being isolated and closed off.
The Power of USBs is Stronger than Nuclear Weapons
Jung thinks that if North Koreans see things that are different from the life and politics in North Korea, they will think this is worth fighting for to become reality.
Therefore, he pointed out that to come against a regime that owns nuclear weapons, the USB drives contain a power that cannot be underestimated. He said, "Nuclear weapons are man-made. If we can change the thinking of those who made nuclear weapons, this will be revolutionary. The North Korean government worries the most about their people knowing the truth. If the truth enters North Korea through external information, Kim Jong-un's dictatorship may be disarmed."
In addition, domestic production of food in North Korea is insufficient and they need more food. Also, most North Koreans question the legitimacy of the government, so Chung wishes to allow the people to see the world through USBs. Therefore, this USB media within the North Korean border is very powerful.
Jung was accused of being a South Korean spy. He was starved and tortured for three years in prison. He was eventually released and escaped from North Korea to China by swimming across the Tumen River.
Nowadays, he tells his stories all around the world and promotes the "invisible gospel" project. He hopes that North Koreans can hear the gospel.
