Kim said in a broadcast New Year's address Sunday that the entire U.S.is now in range of North Korea's arsenal.
South Korea's unification ministry said Tuesday it is "carefully" considering the timing of proposing talks with North Korea as the North's leader expressed his willingness to send a delegation to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
Kim also called for improved relations with the South, an idea mentioned in speeches more often than it is met. The United Nations Security Council last month approved its strongest sanctions yet on North Korea - a move that Pyongyang described as an "act of war".
The New Year's address is an annual event in the North and is watched closely for indications of the direction and priorities Kim may adopt in the year ahead. "North and South must work together to alleviate the tensions and work together as a people of the same heritage to find peace and stability", Kim said, according to a CNN translation of his speech.
The sanctions on North Korea were imposed a year ago after it carried out a series of tests of ballistics missiles that could be armed with a nuclear warhead and underground nuclear weapons tests.
Departing from his usual black or navy suits, Kim gave his televised speech wearing black-rimmed glasses and slicked back hair, speaking fluently and rarely looking down to read as he raised the possibility of sending a delegation to the upcoming Winter Olympics in South Korea.

In September, the regime carried out its sixth and most powerful nuclear test.
If the talks are realised, Mr Cho said South Korea will first focus on Olympic cooperation but also try to discuss a restoration of strained ties between the Koreas.
An official from South Korea's Foreign Ministry said the 5,100-ton KOTI and its crew members were being held at Pyeongtaek-Dangjin port on the country's west coast amid an inspection over supposed "North Korea-related" activity.
