    South Korean authorities are investigating how a famous North Korean defector returned to the North.

    Jeon Hye-sung, or Lim Ji-hyun as she was known by in South Korea, appeared on a North Korean propaganda video online over the weekend where she denounced life in the South.

    She defected to South Korea in 2014 and quickly became a minor celebrity, making regular appearances on TV shows about defectors.

    Amid rumors that she was abducted by the regime while visiting China in April, police said they are looking into the details of how she returned to North Korea, and whether she did anything that might have violated national security laws.
