Guests: Kirk Larsen, PhD, Associate Professor of History, Brigham Young University; Mark Peterson, PhD, Associate Professor of Asian and Near and Eastern Languages, Brigham Young University All weekend long, media reports bordered on breathless as they followed Kim Yo-jong, the only sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un and the first immediate member of North Korea’s ruling family to visit South Korea. She and South Korea’s president Moon Jae-In shared a warm handshake at the opening ceremonies. Photos of that went viral. And Kim Yo-jong also extended an unexpected invitation for the South Korean president to visit Pyongyang, the North Korean capital.
