I am sorry, many here have posted hoax's for various reasons.
If I/we can not independently verify what is said, we must find it all suspect.
I am in no way calling you a lier or hoaxer.
But, without proof, how are we supposed to take you as anything else???seriously!!!
I do agree, N.K. is a very important topic, especially what they are doing/thinking behind their iron-curtain.
One thing may help, if you can find independent conformation of what this person says in print and, of course, we would need the links.

Can I ask why you wanted to talk to him? Also, did he approach you or did you find him? Is he a friend? The reason I ask these general questions is it seems to me that if you are not a professional as you stated above that is actually going to DO something with this information, you have put this guy's life in danger. And for what? So you can post it on your blog? Because you were curious?
I hope this guy stays safe... and I hope your reasons are good... his reasons were good because he probably thought you could DO something about their plight... please tell me you can because if you can't, I seriously hope that you will never do this again.
Edit to add: This situation is serious. Do not put people's lives in danger unless there is a very good reason to do so that will benefit THEM. The more I think about this the more horrible I think it is because you evidently didn't even take it seriously enough to be able to stay awake for all that he wanted to tell you. This is crap... think before you let your curiosity take hold next time.
If I'm totally off base, I will apologize to you, but from what I've read so far, I don't think I am.
