The media has given Kim Jong Un’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, plenty of press coverage at the Olympics, even comparing her to Ivanka Trump. Headlines have been written, saying, “Kim Jong Un’s sister is stealing the show at the Winter Olympics” and “North Korea heads for diplomacy gold medal at Olympics: analysts.”
“If ‘diplomatic dance’ were an event at the Winter Olympics, Kim Jong Un’s younger sister would be favored to win gold,” CNN writes. “With a smile, a handshake and a warm message in South Korea’s presidential guest book, Kim Yo Jong has struck a chord with the public just one day into the Pyeongchang Games.”
However, they seem to be forgetting something: North Korea is a murderous regime that runs concentration camps.
The Daily Caller interviewed Ji Seong Ho, the defector who attended President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address, to hear his take on the media’s focus on Kim Yo Jong.
“Yo Jong’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung, is a war criminal, and her father, Kim Jong Il, killed three million people by starvation. Kim Jong Un is responsible for human rights violations and assassination of his own half-brother.
The Kim family is taking hostage of the North Korean people and threatening the world with its nuclear weapons. Therefore, South Korean people hate Kim Yo Jong and her visit.
I personally think she should be mindful of her place, stop looking down on other people arrogantly and feel guilty.”
Ji explained in a 2014 interview, according to The New York Times, that he and his family were struggling to survive famine and were so weak that they would lay on the floor for hours.
