The blue blood is however more than the titles. The 32-years-old has recently made hard statements. She has established the fact that she isn’t just a few title holder, she is becoming the de-facto power in North Korea.

Moon Jae-in, the South Korean President has stepped-up an effort to make peace with the North. The National Assembly of South Korea, dominated by the party of the President, made it illegal to fire off leaflets, candy bars, dollar bills, and USB devices to show the prosperity on the Southern Korean Peninsula.

But a day after celebrating the 20th anniversary of the joint North-South Agreement in Pyongyang between Kim Jong II and Late President Kim Dae Jung, Kim Yo Jung fired some words. The North Korean defectors fired off some balloons from South Korea with leaflets criticizing the regime.

The Sister of the North Korean Dictator rage about them and told her, 

“Human scum hardly worth their value as human beings, little short of wild animals who betrayed their own homeland. time to bring their owners to account” and ask “south (sic) Korean authorities if they are ready to take care of the consequences of evil conduct by the rubbish-like mongrel dogs who took no scruple to slander us while faulting the ‘nuclear issue’ in the meanest way at the untimeliest time.”

Kim further discarded Moon’s conciliatory words as, “a string of shameless and impudent words full of incoherence” and “shameless perfidy,” reported Yahoo News.

But this has left the broken trust. Moon Jae-in said that it is detrimental to the trust built with Kim Jong Un.

So, is she just a member of the family? It seems she is more than that. With the reports that Kim Jong Un is fighting an undisclosed disease, his sister is stepping up for the big role. She is gearing up for the throne.

But obviously, she has something special. The elder brother of both of them who was not considered as heir by Kim Jong II, Kim Yong Chol is not even in the picture. He was pictured long back in Singapore and London. But no threat was issued to him nor harmed.

Kim Jong Nam, half brother of Kim Jong Un, son of Kim Jong II and his mistress, was assassinated as a threat. But Kim Yo Jung has made significant progress and taking baby steps towards the throne.
