Before meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, Southern spy "Black Venus" was told to stay up late, shower, and dress neatly.With North and South engaged in a rapid diplomatic rapprochement, "The Spy Gone North" has been an instant best-seller and box office hit, the film attracting 5 million viewers in just its first three weeks on release – around 10 percent of the South's entire population.Kim also expressed a keen interest in the South's upcoming presidential poll, according to Park.The three men who had supported candidate Lee were later convicted of breaking the South's National Security Law, which bans all and any contact with the North, but they were later acquitted on appeal to the Supreme Court after Park had refused to give his testimony.After his cover was blown, Park was fired by the spy agency after which he moved to China, where he subsequently spent a lot of his time on the golf course. The ANSP, currently known as the National Intelligence Service, declined to comment on the allegations of Park.
