Assassination of Kim Jong-Un Being Considered by South Korea - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives field guidance to the Kosan Combined Fruit Farm in this undated photo released by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) in Pyongyang September 18, 2016.

South Korea's tone has radically shifted in the past several weeks, first by suggesting the destruction of Pyongyang, and now floating trial ballons of a possible assasination attempt on the life of the North Korea dictator, Kim Jong-Un

Accoring to The Korea Times, Korea is "considering launching a special forces unit to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un," Defense Minister Han Min-koo said Wednesday.

He made the comment during a parliamentary meeting in Seoul after Rep. Kim Sung-chan of the ruling Saenuri Party asked him about rumors of the plan.

Han said the unit will "take action" if the North shows clear signs of attacking South Korea. This is part of the "Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation" plan (KMPR), a military response announced after North Korea's fifth nuclear test on Sept. 9, Han said.

The KMPR targets North Korean leadership, including its military headquarters, with a preemptive strike that includes teams of highly trained commandos and simultaneous missile attacks capable of precision strikes, in case of the North's nuclear attack on the South.

"If it becomes clear the enemy is moving to attack the South with nuclear missiles, in order to suppress its aims, the concept [of the special forces] is to destroy key figures and areas that include the North Korean leadership," Han told lawmakers.

Meanwhile, KMPR has been described as a part of a "three-axis system" of South Korea's military in response to North Korea's provocations, with Korean Air and Missile Defense (KAMD) ― Seoul's homegrown anti-missile systems ― and Kill Chain, a pre-emptive strike system by the South Korea-U.S. Joint Command.

"The ministry also plans a supplementary budget to bring the three-axis system to completion by 2020," Han said.

According to UPI,  North Korea responding by threatening to obliterate Seoul with a hydrogen bomb a day after South Korea's defense ministry confirmed it has a military plan to remove Kim Jong Un.

Pyongyang propaganda outlet Maeari issued the strongly worded statement Thursday, charging South Korea's "senior military officials" of a plan to "destroy the North Korean leadership" and "make Pyongyang disappear off the map."
