Starting in September 1951, aged twenty-one, Sun worked at a prisoner-of-war centre near Pyongyang, North Korea. There, as a twenty-one-year-old subaltern attached, in the capacity of Assistant Consultant on Interrogations, to Major Pak of the North Korean Army, he had had the opportunity of getting to know British soldiers, who intrigued him.
Sun became a member of the Special Activities Committee of the Chinese People's Liberation Army as well as a sadist and skilled torturer. Sun takes a perverse pleasure in inflicting all sorts of pain upon Bond in the belief that “through cruelty one rises to heights of superhuman awareness”.
