Information about the North Korean government's inner workings are hard to come by, which is why news this week of leader Kim Jong-Un's sister moving up the ranks has many Hermit Kingdom watchers intrigued.
KCNA Watch, an independent group focusing on North Korea, carried an article from the government's news agency which detailed Kim Jong-Un's April visit to a cartoon film studio.
