Kim Jong Un is sending his younger sister, Kim Yo Jong, to South Korea for the Winter Olympics, the first time any member of the Kim dynasty has visited the country. Here are some key facts to know about the dictator’s influential kin:
- Political position: A close aide of her brother’s who manages his public events, itineraries, logistical needs, and late-night cheese runs.
- Leadership: Reportedly took charge of North Korea while her brother was ill with gout or diabetes, or just catching up on the last season of Game of Thrones, in late 2014.
- Lullaby she reportedly sings to her brother to calm him down (translated): “The mentally deranged dotard makes us puke… Don’t worry, you’ve got a better nuke!”
