JTBC’s infotainment program “Non-Summit” will discuss the general sentiment in different countries regarding the assassination of the North Korean leader’s half brother, Kim Jong-nam, on the episode that airs Monday.

The episode will be broadcast at 10:50 p.m. on the channel JTBC.

The elder half brother of North Korea’s Kim Jong-un was killed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on Feb. 14 with a nerve agent the Malaysian police analyzed to be VX.

A person from Malaysia will also join that episode of “Non-Summit” to relay the tense atmosphere among the locals in his country regarding the use of the deadly chemical weapon in a crowded public place in their homeland.

“This was the first assassination of a foreign person in Malaysia’s international airport,” he said.

The members of the show’s international panel will also bring up some well-known cases of assassination that occurred in their home countries. For instance, Mark will speak of the allegations Cuba’s Fidel Castro made about the US’ various attempts to assassinate him.

The panel will also discuss who should have the right to punish a killer when a citizen is killed in a foreign country. Block B’s Park Kyung and Taeil will take part as Korean representatives in the discussion.
