Not forgotten: Son of an abductee in N. Korea fights on

S. Korean has sacrificed family, career and health to free his father, victim of a 1969 plane hijacking

My hometown, southern sea, I can see the blue water / How can I forget the calm sea in the village / Waterfowl would be flying, I want to go, I want to go / Miss buddies playing together / How can I forget them, wherever I go? / What are you doing today, I miss you, I miss you / Waterfowl, my buddies are still there /... let's go back to the time without tear

This song, entitled "I Want to Return Home," is what Hwang Won is said to have sang in his North Korean captivity.
