A military source said, “We have detected the defector group launched the balloons, and some have flown into North Korean airspace.”

However, it is not known how many balloons entered North Korean airspace. According to the source, North Korea’s response to the balloon has not been detected, such as scattering garbage balloons, launching ballistic missiles, or the GPS jamming attack.

Earlier, Park Sang Hak, the representative of the Free North Korea Movement, announced that he had scattered 200,000 leaflets for North Korea using 10 ad balloons from Pocheon, Gyeonggi Province, between 0 and 1 o’clock that day. The ad balloons included portable storage devices (USBs) containing South Korean pop songs and dramas and 1-dollar bills.

After the report of leaflet scattering, the South Korean Ministry of Unification said, “We are maintaining a close cooperative relationship with relevant agencies and doing our best to manage the situation.” However, it once again confirmed the government’s existing position that “we are approaching the issue under the decision purpose of the Constitutional Court that it made last September, stating that guaranteeing the freedom of expression for the leaflet scattering.”

Earlier, in protest against the leaflets for North Korea, North Korea sent over 1,000 garbage balloons to South Korea from the 28th of last month to the 2nd. North Korea then temporarily halted the balloon scattering, stating, “If we find that South Korean things are resuming the scattering of anti-republic leaflets, we will scatter a hundred times the amount of paper and garbage.” Therefore, there are concerns that North Korea may soon launch balloons into South Korea or take other military actions.
