Kim’s sister reportedly on guest list for festival in South

Unification Ministry skeptical of claim Kim Yo Jong will visit the South

Kim Yo Jong, the younger sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, is reportedly among the names on a list of official North Korean guests scheduled to attend an inter-Korean food and culture festival in South Korea in March, the Korea Economic Daily reported Thursday.

South Korea’s Ministry of Unification, however, said it cannot yet confirm that the request is genuinely from North Korea, let alone if it refers to the same Kim Yo Jong that is the leader’s sister.
