North Korea – The daughter of Kim Jong Un, Kim Ju Ae may become the North Korean Leader like her father, according to South Korea’s spy agency NIS.

Ju Ae was first identified as Kim’s daughter in 2013, after former basketball star Dennis Rodman accidentally revealed her name by indicating he held Kim’s “baby” daughter during a visit to Pyongyang.

The North’s state media has referred to her as a “most beloved” or “respected” child of Mr. Kim and has shown military generals and other high-ranking officials kneeling before her.

But until now, the South Korean government has been cautious in speculating about the girl’s status within Pyongyang’s secretive regime. 

South Korean officials have said that although the dynastic rule of the Kim family would probably continue in the North after Mr. Kim’s death, they were not sure which child would succeed him, as quoted by New York Times site. 

Mr. Kim had another child younger than Ju-ae, according to South Korean officials. They said they were checking intelligence that Mr. Kim may also have a child older than Ju-ae who might be a son. So far, Ju-ae is the only child of Mr. Kim known to have appeared in public.

“As of now, Kim Ju-ae is seen as the most likely successor,” the National Intelligence Agency, South Korea’s main government-run spy agency, said in an assessment released on Thursday through a member of the National Assembly. 

The assessment was included in written answers the agency provided to questions from Youn Kun Young, a member of the Assembly’s intelligence committee.

But the agency cautioned that it was also considering “all possibilities” in the North’s succession plan, given “many variables.” 

It did not elaborate, other than noting that Mr. Kim was still young – he turns 40 on Monday – and was not known to have serious health issues.

Ju-ae made her first public appearance in November 2022, when she watched a long-range missile test with her father. 

She has since accompanied Mr. Kim to important state events, like military parades, sharing the center stage with her father in North Korean media coverage. 

The state media has often shown the father and daughter hooking arms and touching each other’s faces in loving gestures.

In a New Year’s Eve celebration in Pyongyang on Sunday, Mr. Kim was seen on North Korean TV footage hugging and kissing his daughter on the cheek.

North Korea is not a monarchy, but it has had dynastic leadership since the end of World War II. Its top leader is supposedly elected through a ruling Workers’ Party congress. 

In reality, though, the Kims have run the country like a private family enterprise since its founding. Both Mr. Kim’s grandfather and father ruled until they died. Mr. Kim took over after his father, Kim Jong-il, died in 2011.

The question of who would inherit the regime, and the country’s fast-growing nuclear arsenal has fascinated officials and analysts, especially when doubts about Mr. Kim’s health have occasionally emerged. 

If Ju-ae replaces Mr. Kim as leader, she would be the first female ruler of the deeply patriarchal and male-dominant North.

It is notoriously difficult to predict the inner workings of the opaque regime in Pyongyang. 

Many outside analysts had long speculated that one of Kim Jong-un’s two elder brothers would replace their father until North Korea revealed Mr. Kim as successor following Kim Jong-il’s stroke in 2008.
