Kim Jong Un’s wife makes first appearance after one year
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s wife made her first public appearance in more than a year, state media reported on Wednesday.
Ri Sol Ju joined her husband at a musical performance for the anniversary of the birth of former leader Kim Jong Il, which is known as the Day of the Shining Star in North Korea, the official Korean Central News Agency reported Wednesday.
The last Ri Sol-ju was seen in public was in January 2020 while attending a concert celebrating Lunar New Year`s Day at the Samjiyon Theater in Pyongyang with leader Kim.
First lady, Ri was often seen accompanying Kim in his public activities accompanying him on his “field guidance” trips, including visits to the Mount Kumgang resort on the country`s scenic east coast and the spa resort in Yangdok County in central North Korea in 2019.
Earlier, the state media reported that Kim visited the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, where the body of the former leader and his father lie in state. Also enshrined at the mausoleum is the body of Kim Il-sung, the national founder and grandfather of the current leader.
Meanwhile, Pyongyang has taken drastic measures by imposing restrictions on movement and sealing its borders against coronavirus even though it has claimed to be virus-free.
