The video was posted online by a group claiming to have rescued the trio following the murder of Kim Jong-nam in Malaysia last month.
Kim Jong-nam was killed at Kuala Lumpar International Airport on February 13 by assassins using “a super-toxic nerve agent”.
In a statement released alongside the video, the group – called Cheallima Civil Defence – added that the family was receiving emergency humanitarian assistance from the governments of the Netherlands, China and the US.
A mystery video has surfaced just weeks after the murder
The previously unknown group also claims to have “extracted” vulnerable members of the Jong-nam family, keeping them under protection in undisclosed locations.
According to an official at South Korea’s National Intelligence Service, the man in the video is Kim Han Sol – the murdered North Korean’s 21-year-old son.
During the 40-second video, the young man says his father was killed “a few days ago” and claims he is with his mother and sister.
The man is believed to be Kim Han Sol
He speaks in English and does not disclose his location or details of his current accommodation.
He adds: “We hope this gets better soon”.
While the video is yet to be verified, the man bears a striking resemblance to Kim Han Sol, who was last interviewed on camera in 2012 by former Finnish defence minister Elisabeth Rehn.
