Jang Yeong-jin fled North Korea to escape a loveless marriage. Now he is engaged to his boyfriend.

But a few years later, this new world exposed Jang to devastating fraud. In 2004, the owner of Jang’s favourite bar introduced him to a local air steward. They dated for three months and Jang fell in love. The air steward urged Jang to move in, but explained that as he lived with his stepfather they would first need to buy a bigger home. Jang moved out of his own rental and gave him all 90m won ($81,669) of his hard-won savings and all his belongings.
