Kim Jong Un’s sister criticizes the “idiot” South Korean president

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s powerful sister called South Korea’s president and government “idiots” and a “loyal dog” of the United States, state media reported Thursday.

The vitriol of Kim Yo Jong followed Seoul’s saying this week that it was considering imposing new unilateral sanctions on North Korea over recent missile tests, including an intercontinental ballistic missile launch last week.

“This disgusting act shows most clearly that the South Korean group is a ‘loyal dog’ and agent of the United States,” Kim said in a statement carried by KCNA.

“I wonder what ‘sanctions’ the South Korean group, nothing more than a wild dog running on a bone provided by the United States, brazenly attacked the DPRK,” she said, using the acronym for North Korea’s official name. “What a wonderful sight!”

Pyongyang always refers to South Korea with a small “s”, which is a clear sign of disrespect.

Kim accused South Korean President Yoon Sok-yul of creating a “dangerous situation” and compared him unfavorably to his more cautious predecessor Moon Jae-in, for whom, she said, “Seoul was not our target.”

She said, “I wonder why the people of South Korea are still passive spectators of such actions by Yoon Seok Yul’s” government and other idiots.”

North Korea tends to make statements before making a provocation, said Professor Yang Moo-jin of the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, adding, “There may be an armed demonstration against South Korea and the United States soon.”

Friday’s launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile was the latest in a record-breaking blitz of recent Pyongyang launches that officials and analysts in Seoul and Washington have warned could culminate in its seventh nuclear test.

North Korea has a long history of colorful personal attacks against foreign leaders, and analysts have often noted the country’s failure to use “diplomatic language.”

“Basically, they can’t speak well of countries they consider enemies,” said Jo Myung-hyun, a researcher at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies.

Before the nomination of US President Joe Biden, Pyongyang called him a “rabid dog” who “must be beaten to death with a stick” and referred to his predecessor Donald Trump as a “mentally deranged American blob”.
