[Exclusive] High-Profile N. Korean Family Seeks to Defect to S. Korea

In an exclusive report, a family closely related to Kim Jong-nam is now seeking to defect to South Korea after escaping from Pyongyang. 

Fifty-something Kim, his wife and two children left the North Korean capital and arrived in Beijing Friday last week, just three days before the half brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was murdered in Malaysia.

The father revealed that the family detected signs of imminent danger to Kim Jong-nam, and decided to escape from the North.

Belonging to the North Korean royal family known as the 'Baekdu bloodline,' the father had taken care of the late Kim Jong-nam while traveling between North Korea and China. 

The family is now under the protection of the government of a third country, preparing to come to South Korea.
