However, reports that people with the same name as Kim Ju Ae forced to change their names in North Korea appear to be false, according to the spy agency.
Following her appearance at official events since last November when Kim Jong Un took her to the ICBM test launch site, questions have raised as to whether Kim’s 9-year-old daughter could become the future leader of their isolated regime.
She received much attention as she accompanied her father on a military parade to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the founding of North Korea’s army. North Korea’s state media described her as the “respected” and “beloved” daughter of Kim Jong Un in its report about the celebration.
On February 8, 2023, North Korean officials provided this photo of Kim Ju Ae – daughter of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un – at his Pyongyang residence. Korean Central News Agency/Korea News Service via AP provided this file photo.
Yoo remarked, “Kim Joo Ae’s frequent public appearances appear to be an attempt to cement the legitimacy of his hereditary succession within the Kim bloodline.” According to NIS analysis, Kim Jong Un is still too young and healthy to designate a successor at such an early age.
Little is known about the two other siblings. Yoo confirmed to reporters that the first child is male based on international intelligence, though no physical evidence exists to back this up. Furthermore, while intelligence has confirmed the existence of a third child, its gender remains uncertain.
Lawmaker Yun also informed the press that North Korea could conduct extensive military drills in March or April and test its new solid fuel Intercontinental ballistic missile shortly.
