The North Korea's Korean Central News Agency said on Thursday that Kim Kwang-hyok, who escaped from North Korea and went to South Korea in 2008, returned to North Korea with his wife, Ko Jong-nam, on September 12 of this year.
According to KCNA, Kim and Ko met in South Korea and got married in 2009. KCNA claimed that they were lured by the South Korean agents and their lives in South Korea were miserble.
The Unification Ministry said that those two names are the defectors who had settled in South Korea. However, the ministry is trying to find out whether they are the same people and the reason for their return.
