Kim Shin-Jo is one of two survivors, and the only one captured by South Korean forces, of a 31-person team of North Korean commandos sent to assassinate the then president of South Korea, Park Chung Hee, in the 'Blue House Raid' in January 1968. After the failed attempt, he was interrogated for a year by the South Korean authorities before being released. After he became a citizen of South Korea in 1970, his parents were executed and his relatives purged by the North Korean authorities. Kim later became a pastor at Sungrak Sambong church in Gyeonggi-do. He has a wife with two children.
