ABSTRACT
The article discusses the oppression experienced by North Korean poet Kim Chul. He is famous for his lyric poetry but his poems could not be published unless they promoted ideology of the Korean Workers' Party. The North Korean government banished him for the crime of writing according to an artistic instead of political sensibility. He was sentenced for life in hard labor together with his young son. He wrote the poem "Forgive Me" as his apology to the party.
