Koryo Crime Podcast


In this episode, I discuss the murders of serial killer Jeong Nam-gyu. He killed 14 people between 2004-2006 mostly by stabbing. He was also the murderer of the woman in the Imun-dong case which Yoo Young Chul falsely confessed to. He was found dead in his cell while awaiting his death sentence at Seoul Detention Center.
