Huong's lawyer, Hisyam Teh Poh Teik, called the decision not to drop the case "disappointing" in court Thursday. He said prosecutors were being unfair to Huong as her case was similar to Aisyah. "There is discrimination as the prosecution favors one party to the other", he said.
Both women have said they thought they were taking part in a prank for a television show.
Two other North Korean nationals, whom Malaysian police had identified as persons of interest in the investigation, were on the same commercial flight that carried Kim's body out of Malaysia.
Huong's lawyers said they were deeply disappointed with the decision and the attorney general had a "moral obligation" to explain the reasoning given the global nature of the case.
Huong has been on trial since last one and a half year.
No reason was given for the decision by Attorney-General Tommy Thomas to reject Doan's application for immediate acquittal and release as a suspect in the February 2017 assassination by poisoning of Kim, the estranged half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, at a Kuala Lumpur airport.
Malaysian prosecutors withdrew murder charge against Aisyah over the death of the victim.
Huong's lawyer had sought a delay for the trial Thursday.
"God knows me and Siti Aisyah didn't do anything", she said. Teh said Huong was unwell and needed medical treatment.
North Korea has consistently denied involvement in the killing, though US, South Korean and Malaysian authorities have said Pyongyang was responsible. The Guardian reported that Huong looked pale and drawn. The defense phase of the trial was to have begun Monday. She could be seen shaking as she pleaded with Vietnam embassy officials.

They were charged under Section 302 of the Penal Code, which provides for the mandatory death sentence upon conviction.
Both women insist they are innocent.
Experts have said the case against Aisyah appeared weaker since there was no video evidence of her with Kim at the airport. There was security camera footage of Huong.
