From the Joongang Ilbo:

In a closed meeting of the National Assembly, a representative of the National Intelligence Service continued to repeat that the group of North Koreans made it clear they wanted to be sent home.
Agents here chose to use person-to-person interrogation to determine whether the group wanted to defect to South Korea, the NIS representative said, during the investigation.
During questioning, all of the North Koreans repeatedly asked South Korean government agents to be repatriated, said a meeting participant, declining to be named.
After the questioning, the NIS said it notified North Korea before returning the group via the truce village of Panmunjeom.
The spy agency said it still has no confirmed intelligence on the fate of the North Koreans.
