When General Guhn Gim asked me to come closer, I was fearful that I would be arrested for over hearing the conversation. The general then asked me if I had any information regarding what occurred in Mexico recently. I told him that I can find out as much as they need. Kim Jong Un then asked me to leave his chambers and go back into the hallway with the other reporters.

I was then called back into the room, without either of knowing I overheard their last statement.
