North Korea's former supreme commander Kim Jong-Il was a big film buff and wanted someone to make films in North Korea. In order to enact his plan, in 1977, he had Shin Sang-ok and Choi Eun-hee South Korea's top director and actress abducted and brought to Pyongyang. They went on to produce North Korean cult classic Pulgasari, a monster film with socialist leanings, before eventually escaping. The story, good enough for a film plot of its own, has been brought to life in A Kim Jong-il Production.
