Tony Kim, detained since April 23, 2017: He was teaching accounting at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology. A source told Reuters that his arrest was not related to his teaching: “He had been involved with some activities outside P.U.S.T., such as helping an orphanage.”

Kim Hak-song, detained since May 6, 2017: He also worked at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology. Per the Times, “it was not clear if his arrest was connected with that of Tony Kim 14 days earlier.”

Kim Dong-chul, detained since 2015: The most obscure of the prisoners, the Times reports that “Mr. Kim appeared at a government-arranged news conference in Pyongyang [in March 2016] and apologized for trying to steal military secrets in collusion with South Koreans.”
