Seoul to re-examine arrival of North Korean women

Seoul to re-examine arrival of North Korean women”

This is a first for the relationship between North Korea and South Korea since, before that, the only experience the North had for K-pop was loud border speakers blasting K-pop songs to them which they even considered as an act of war.

The Japan-based publication described the group escape of North Korean restaurant workers from China's Zhejiang Province as an "abduction incident" and called for the return of the North Koreans to their families during a planned inter-Korea family reunion in August.

Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun on Friday didn't present a transparent reply on whether or not the ladies may very well be despatched again to the North if it is confirmed they did not need to come to South Korea.

A group of restaurant workers say they did not realise they were being helped to defect until they arrived in Malaysia. The man, who's now also in South Korea, said he carried out the escape under plans arranged by South Korea's National Intelligence Service and that the women were brought along without knowledge of where they were going.

The Choson Sinbo issued the statement Monday, less than a week after the North Korean manager Heo Kang-il told South Korean television network JTBC they were victims of a South Korea government "luring and kidnapping" during the term of jailed President Park Geun-hye. An NIS official, who didn't want to be named because of department rules, said the spy agency couldn't immediately confirm or deny the JTBC report. Both sides also vowed to coordinate on the implementation of United Nations resolutions on North Korea and support ongoing diplomatic engagements.

North Korea runs more than 100 restaurants in other countries, where the mission is to earn foreign currency and provide a much-needed source of income for the financially-isolated country. The South later in 2016 rejected a highly unusual overture by the North to temporarily send the restaurant workers' relatives to the South to meet with them.
