May 24, 2011 - PRLog -- Read the amazing story of Ro Kong Kyun, which takes him from pre-World War II Korea to an education at the finest universities in America, and a prestigious career in the United States.

The Exile: Journey From Life to Death begins in 1938 when the author was 8 years old, and spans over six decades. His fast-moving account proceeds with wit, gravity and humor as he details the often harrowing events he survived. When World War II erupted, Ro’s childhood of wealth and privilege shatters. In 1950, Korea explodes in civil war, and after serving in the Republic of Korea Marines, he then joins the U.S. Marine Corp.

After the fighting has finally ended, Ro sails to America to attend Yale and begin a new life, but there is unforeseen danger. This true story of one man’s greatest love that is lost and re-found, and the intrigue, betrayal and murder that he must overcome is faced with rare courage. The Exile is a must-read!
