North Korean Assassin Used James Bond-like Weapons in Failed Assassination Attempt

As it turns out, James Bond was real all along. Though, unlike the suave super-spy who works for MI6, the real life James Bond is Korean and isn’t nearly as good as the his phony British counterpart. I’m referring to an assassin named Anh, who was apprehended last year in Seoul, South Korea with gadgets only the famous Q could provide.

Upon casual inspection, Anh was carrying two pens and a flashlight. Sounds innocent enough, right? That’s the point. One pen was equipped with a needle which could administer a poison that would cause paralysis and death. The other pen was capable of firing a bullet that penetrates the skin and releases a toxin inside the body. Finally, the flashlight was actually a gun capable of firing three bullets.

The assassin was after Park Sang-hak, an anti-North Korean activist who had been using balloons to airlift propaganda over the border and into North Korea. Park was wanted by the North Korean government, which suggests that Anh may have been working with the government. That would make the 007 comparison even more appropriate.
