The soldier defected through Panmunjom village, along the Joint Security Area (JSA), which is policed by soldiers from both North Korea and South Korea.

The North's drills are expected to run from December to April, according to the South Korean military.

A JCS official quoted by Yonhap news agency said the South's soldiers heard a gunshot and then retrieved the unarmed soldier in the mid-afternoon.

Over the decades since the peninsula was divided, dozens of North Korean soldiers have fled to the South through the DMZ, which extends for two kilometers either side of the actual borderline.

Signs have been detected that North Korea's military is preparing for winter drills that will begin in December, according to the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

In September, South Korea approved a plan to offer US$8 million in humanitarian assistance to North Korea to support infants and pregnant women, amid tensions sparked by North Korea's provocations. South Korea was keeping its "full combat readiness against North Korea's possibility provocations", its military said Monday.

The drill comes in response to the series of nuclear and missile threats from North Korea and is created to show tyrannical leader Kim Jong-un that any further threats will be repelled with "overwhelming force".
