at 8 p.m. local time on July 25, Korean Central Television also reported the news. Although the report of Korean Central Television was only an oral report and did not broadcast relevant pictures, the reporter of global people magazine noticed that when broadcasting “Marshal Kim Jong Un and his wife Comrade Li Xuezhu attended the completion ceremony together”, the announcer mentioned the word “madam”, which obviously accentuated the tone and appeared very excited and proud.

The amusement park is located on the Bank of the beautiful Datong River, with a total area of 15000 square meters. It is composed of mini golf course, play pool, dolphin hall and other facilities with both modeling and artistic beauty.

Kim Jong Un was very satisfied with the construction of the amusement park project. He pointed out that we should take this as an example to build buildings that meet the people’s thoughts, feelings, aesthetic aspirations and requirements throughout North Korea, “so that our people can enjoy the most superior cultural and living conditions”. During the visit, military builders and female workers presented bouquets to Kim Jong Un.

Korean media speculation

with the confirmation of the identity of Mrs. Kim Jong Un’s Li Xuezhu by the North Korean media, foreign media, especially South Korea, immediately began to collect and report the details of Li Xuezhu’s life and other personal information.

according to the information from the South Korean National Intelligence Agency, Li Xuezhu is from Qingjin City, North Hamgyong Road, North Korea. He was born in 1989 and came from an ordinary family. His father is a professor of Qingjin University and his mother is a chief physician of Obstetrics and gynecology. Li Xuezhu graduated from Jinxing No. 2 high school in Pyongyang and later studied vocal music in China. He married Kim Jong Un in 2009 and had a daughter in 2010.

South Korea’s “Central Daily” reported that Li Xuezhu was a famous singer who was noticed by Kim Jong Un and Kim Jong Il in the audience during a performance because of his youth and fashion. When Kim Jong Il worked out Kim Jong Un’s succession plan, he indicated that he wanted Li Xuezhu to be Kim Jong Un’s wife. Later, Li Xuezhu received six months of special training in the special class of Kim Il Sung comprehensive university to be competent as the “first lady”.

Korean daily, another major newspaper in South Korea, judged that Li Xuezhu was a famous singer of the Korean Galaxy orchestra. Their basis is that in January 2011, Korean Central Television broadcast a video clip of the New Year Concert of the galaxy Orchestra, and a singer named Li Xuezhu sang the song “soldiers’ footprints”. The singer’s oval face, ears, tiger teeth and other features are very similar to the recently publicized appearance of Kim Jong Un’s wife Li Xuezhu, which can be judged to be the same person.

however, another South Korean media reported that Li Xuezhu was the lead singer of the North Korean putenberg electronic Orchestra and sang songs including “a better future”, “the boy whistling” and “the girl of the horse”. She became popular in North Korea and suddenly disappeared in 2006, no longer performing in public. In March this year, Li Xuezhu suddenly returned to sing at an important concert. Kim Jong Un, who watched the performance on site, smiled and even applauded warmly. It is speculated that the disappearance and appearance of Li Xuezhu has a great relationship with Kim Jong Un.

and South Korean media reported that Li Xuezhu was originally an actor of the song and drama troupe, known as “Korean version of Deng Lijun”. Now he is a doctoral student of Kim Il Sung comprehensive university and is also responsible for the management of the peony peak orchestra.

South Korea has spared no effort in mining Li Xuezhu’s personal information. South Korea’s “news today” reported that the South Korean National Intelligence Agency said on July 26 that Kim Jong Un’s wife Li Xuezhu had visited South Korea as a cheerleader. In September 2005, the 16th Asian Track and field championship was held in Incheon, South Korea. The list of cheerleaders provided by North Korea included Li XuezhuThe name of the cheerleader, Li Xuezhu, is very similar to Kim Jong Un’s wife. It should be the same person. Li Xuezhu, who was a student at that time, sang and performed musical instruments on the stage with excellent performance. South Korea’s national intelligence agency believes that Li Xuezhu’s experience may help the North Korean leadership better understand South Korea’s national conditions.

the Korean National Intelligence Agency reported Li Xuezhu’s visit to Incheon to the plenary meeting of the intelligence committee of the Korean parliament on July 26, and also released a photo of Li Xuezhu waving to the Korean people when he arrived at Incheon Airport.

it should be emphasized that the information about “first lady” Li Xuezhu released by South Korea and Western media has not been confirmed or recognized by North Korean officials. An expert on North Korea said that without the official confirmation or recognition of North Korea, the relevant information released by South Korean media can only be “speculation and analysis”. “Spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekds” “spekd, He did not introduce any other personal information, nor did he make any comments on Li Xuezhu’s appearance in public as his wife. Compared with the collective “Silence” of the media, ordinary people in North Korea generally show curiosity, excitement and pride towards Li Xuezhu. The reporter of

Global People magazine learned that after Li Xuezhu accompanied Kim Jong Un in his first public appearance, some North Korean people had a strong interest in the young and beautiful woman. Since then, with Li Xuezhu frequently appearing in public with Kim Jong Un in a prominent position, the people are more curious about her.

a citizen of Pyongyang once asked a staff member of a Chinese funded institution stationed in North Korea whether he knew who the mysterious woman who often accompanied Marshal Kim Jong Un to participate in inspection activities recently. He was very disappointed when he didn’t get a definite answer. When the personnel of the Chinese funded institution asked him why he was so interested in the woman, the Pyongyang citizen said that because he saw her appear next to Comrade Kim Jong Un several times recently, the relationship between them should be extraordinary. Therefore, he especially wanted to know the real situation and hoped that the Marshal’s family life would be happy.

a few days after the identity of Li Xuezhu’s Marshal’s wife was confirmed by the state media, the reporter of global people magazine walked into the streets and alleys of Pyongyang and randomly interviewed citizens of all ages and occupations on the views of Kim Jong Un’s wife Li Xuezhu.

all the citizens interviewed showed strong interest and great affection for the Marshal’s wife. Young citizens have said that Marshal Kim Jong Un’s wife is young, beautiful, fashionable and temperament. She looks very suitable when standing next to marshal. Older citizens believe that Mrs. Kim Jong Un looks dignified and steady. With her company with the marshal, comrade Kim Jong Un appears more mature, charming and affinity.

and other citizens told reporters that since they first saw Li Xuezhu appear next to Kim Jong Un, they guessed that she was likely to be the wife of the marshal. The news pictures in the next few days made them more convinced of their speculation. Therefore, when the state media officially reported that Li Xuezhu was the wife of the marshal, they were very proud and excited about their previous judgment, And accept the Marshal’s wife from the bottom of my heart.

and

several respondents told reporters that they are very proud to see Li Xuezhu, because there are very few young national leaders like Kim Jong Un in the world, and it is a very good thing for North Korea and the Korean people to have such a young, beautiful and temperament wife with them.

from these interview details, the reporter of global people magazine can see that Li Xuezhu’s personal charm has conquered the Korean people, especially the young people; People generally have good feelings and expectations for the young “first lady”.

rarely report “first lady”

from the curiosity and favor of the ordinary people of North Korea towards Marshal Kim Jong Un’s wife Li Xuezhu, it can be seen that the people have great respect and love for the country’s “first lady”. The reporter of global people magazine learned that since the founding of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on September 9, 1948, the “first lady” officially and publicly reported by the official media of North Korea, in addition to the wife of President Kim Jong Un, Li Xuezhu, there are also president Kim Il Sung’s wife, Kim Jong Il’s biological mother and Kim Jong Un’s grandmother, comrade Kim Jong Sook.

Kim Jong Sook was born on December 24, 1917 and died on September 22, 1949. She is a famous Anti Japanese heroine in North Korea.

,

,

and

Korean media have reported a large number of Kim Jong Sook’s revolutionary activities in detail. When referring to Kim Jong Sook, the official media generally call her “the mother of the Anti Japanese heroine Kim Jong Sook” and “the great mother of North Korea”, and merge Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Il as “the three generals of Baitoushan”. At present, many North Korean units are preceded by the name of Kim Jong Sook, such as “Kim Jong Sook nursery”, “Kim Jong Sook Pyongyang silk reeling factory”, etc. There is a monument to the “three generals of Baitou mountain” on the obvious position of many unit courtyards in North Korea, and the inscription of Kim Jong Sook introduces her life story.

North Korea has also issued commemorative stamps for Kim Jong Sook. There is a memorial of her former residence in Huining City, North Hamgyong Road, North Korea, where Kim Jong Sook was born. Basically, all the Korean people know Kim Jong Sook’s revolutionary deeds. For example, they know that she is “Comrade Kim Il Sung’s closest comrade in arms”. They know that she used her body to block the bullets fired by the enemy at Kim Il Sung in order to protect Kim Il Sung in a battle. There are many large posters in Pyongyang with Kim Jong Sook blocking bullets as the background.

since the death of Kim Jong Sook in September 1949, the North Korean media have not officially reported on the “first lady” for a long time.

President Kim Il Sung died in 1994 and Kim Jong Il became the country’s supreme leader, but the North Korean media never officially reported Kim Jong Il’s personal life and his wife’s relevant information. Only foreign media, especially South Korean media, have reported on Kim Jong Il’s marriage.

in North Korea, from the official to the ordinary people, almost never mention the leader’s personal life and the situation of his family members. They believe that this is not a topic that can be talked about casually, because talking about the leader’s family life in private is disrespect for the leader. Therefore, they are very disgusted with foreign media’s random speculation and reporting on the private life of the supreme leader.

however, the Korean state media officially reported that the ordinary people were still very excited and excited. It can be seen that the Korean people hope and wish the supreme leader a happy family and a peaceful life.

foreign media: North Korea may adjust its policy

unlike his grandfather and father, North Korea’s current supreme leader Kim Jong Un, after mastering the supreme power of the country, early let his young, beautiful, fashionable and elegant wife appear in public as the “first lady”. The high-profile appearance of North Korea’s “first lady” has given the media of South Korea, the United States and other countries a different smell.

recently, news about Kim Jong Un’s wife, Li Xuezhu, has occupied the main pages of major media in the United States. On July 25, a reporter asked the US State Department about Li Xuezhu’s public appearance. State Department spokesman Newland smiled and said that any new couple entering the palace of marriage should receive our sincere blessing. She also joked that the United States had not been invited to the wedding because it had not established formal diplomatic relations with North Korea.

CNN said that Li Xuezhu accompanied Kim Jong Un in public many times, reflecting that North Korea is adjusting its policy and began to show itself to the world.

the Los Angeles Times quoted Gao Yuhuan, an expert on North Korea at dongkuo University in South Korea, as saying that in the west, “the first lady” is a symbol of national etiquette and image. Kim Jong Un has been educated in the West and can realize the political meaning of the “first lady”, so it’s better to open it to the outside world than hide his wife.

the New York Times quoted Zheng Xiangchang, an expert on North Korea at the Sejong Institute of South Korea, as saying that Kim Jong Un’s public appearance with his young wife is very attractive to young North Koreans eager for change, especially women living in a patriarchal society. It can also reduce people’s impression of Kim Jong Un’s youth and shallow qualifications, so as to stabilize people’s hearts and minds.

South Korea’s Central Daily said that Kim Jong Un’s public appearance of his wife meant that he chose a different ruling line from his grandfather Kim Il Sung and his father Kim Jong Il.

Bai Chengzhou, a researcher at the Korean National Defense Research Institute, said: “we can think that Kim Jong Un, who went to study in Switzerland in his teens, naturally accepted the public appearance of leaders of western countries with his wife. This is also a symbolic message to the people that his leadership style is different from that of previous leaders.”

Zheng Yongxi, a professor at Seoul National University in South Korea, believes that the North Korean official’s high-profile announcement of Mrs. Kim Jong Un is an attempt to prove that Kim Jong Un is no longer a child and can firmly grasp the state power. “If he is alone during his visit or inspection, someone may look down on him and think he is not grown up. Now that he has a wife, it shows that he is the head of the family and has grown up,” he said

and South Korean media analysis believe that North Korea’s disclosure of Li Xuezhu’s name and identity this time is to stabilize the political situation, show the leader’s people-friendly side, is also in line with international practice, and reflects North Korea’s desire for “reform”.

,

,

,

Kim Jong Un and his wife Li Xuezhu made a public appearance, which was interpreted by the South Korean media as a signal that “North Korea is about to undergo some kind of change”. In response to a question from a KCNA reporter on July 29, the spokesman of the Korean Committee for peaceful reunification said that the so-called “North Korea shows signs of policy change and reform and opening up” is absurd, All DPRK policies are aimed at inheriting and completing the ideological undertakings of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, and there will be no change.
