Kim Jong-Un, and His Fractured Family’s 70-Year Dynastic Rule, on Friday,
AMID NUCLEAR THREATS, ‘20/20’ REPORTS ON NORTH KOREAN LEADER, KIM
JONG-UN, AND HIS FRACTURED FAMILY’S 70-YEAR DYNASTIC RULE
Interviews With Those Who Knew Kim Jong-un and His Assassinated Half-Brother,
As North Korea and the United States escalate dangerous
rhetoric and nuclear threats, experts and citizens are on edge trying to
anticipate what may happen next. At the center of it all is supreme leader Kim
Jong-un and his fractured family. Now, nearly one year after his half-brother,
Kim Jong-nam, was assassinated in a Malaysian airport, “20/20” documents the
70-year rule of North Korea’s first family and the cracks within the dynasty.
Correspondent Bob Woodruff reports on the brothers’ upbringing and explores
their contrasting world views, which may have fueled Kim Jong-un’s desire to
eliminate all of the regime’s enemies – even family. “20/20” airs on Friday,
January 12 (10:00 – 11:00 p.m. EST), on ABC.
The hour includes interviews
with Japanese journalist Yoji Gomi, who was close with Kim Jong-nam and received
emails in which he criticized his half-brother’s leadership; former NBA star
Dennis Rodman, who has made multiple trips to North Korea since 2013 and spent
time with Kim Jong-un; Lee Young-guk, the former bodyguard of Kim Jong-un’s
father; Raquel Carvalho, a South China Morning Post journalist, who had
interviewed Kim Jong-nam; Anna Fifield, Tokyo bureau chief for the Washington
Post; and Dr. Lee Cook-jong, who treated a North Korean soldier who fled to
South Korea in November by running across the border despite sustaining multiple
gunshot wounds in the process.
After fleeing North Korea, Kim Jong-nam
relocated to Macau. There he lived a western lifestyle and became a known critic
of Kim Jong-un’s leadership. He even sent an email to journalist Yoji Gomi,
which he then published, saying “The Kim Jong-un regime will not last long.
Without reforms, North Korea will collapse; and when such changes take place,
the regime will collapse.” Kim Jong-un may not have taken this criticism from
his half-brother well: In February 2017, the world was shocked when Kim Jong-nam
was assassinated in Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia. Security
camera footage shows two women smearing something on his face and then leaving
the scene. It was determined that he was attacked with VX – a highly lethal
nerve agent – and it is speculated that Kim Jong-un was the mastermind behind
