TABLE OF CONTENTS

KIM GYEONG-JIN (1953- ). Kim Gyeong-jin is the daughter of Kim Il Sung and his second wife, Kim Seong-ae, and was therefore half-sister to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) leader Kim Jong Il. Like her half-brother Kim Pyeong-il, she has apparently deemed it prudent to be away from the DPRK since her father died, and she has accompanied her husband, Kim Gwang-seop, currently (in 2012) ambassador to Austria, on various overseas posts.
