DPRK Photo and Book Exhibitions and Film Shows in Libya
Pyongyang, December 15 (KCNA) -- DPRK photo and book exhibitions and film shows were held at the houses of culture in Tarabulus, Tubruq and other places of Libya from Dec. 4 to 6 on the occasion of the 12th anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il's assumption of the supreme commandership of the Korean People's Army and the 86th birth anniversary of Kim Jong Suk, an anti-Japanese war hero. The curator of the Tarabulus House of Culture said at the photo and book exhibition that the Korean people were dynamically advancing along the road of victory despite all manner of moves of the U.S. imperialists and their followers, as they hold Kim Jong Il in high esteem as the great leader and the supreme commander of the KPA. He wished the Korean people greater successes in their efforts to build socialism and reunify the country.
The director of the Tarabulus Daily Necessities Factory, after appreciating the Korean film "The Korean People's Army, Steel-like Ranks", said Kim Jong Il was pursuing the Songun policy, thus increasing the military power of the DPRK. The United States dare not provoke the DPRK because it is wisely led by Kim Jong Il, he added.
Noting that Kim Jong Suk is the great mother of Korea, the vice-director of the factory said her feats in bringing up Kim Jong Il as the bright sun of Korea will shine forever.

If you cannot visit the Tarabulus house of culture:

North Korea's "beloved leader" from the Communist take-over in 1945 to his death in
1995, Kim I1-sung, was a well-known womanizer even during his exile in Manchuria. His
first wife was Kim Jong-suk. She had lived with her parents, slash-and-burn farmers in
Jiande, China, until 1935. Then, at the age of sixteen, she was picked up by a Chinese
Communist guerrilla unit. She was assigned to Kim Il-sung, who kept her barefoot, as a cook
and seamstress. She also worked as one of his bodyguards. In 1942, she gave birth to his son
and successor, Kim Chong-il, in a military base in Siberia.
When Kim Il-sung took over the Communist paradise of North Korea, he enjoyed
intimate relations with innumerable women including movie actresses, dancers, professional
models, his own secretaries, good-looking nurses and kisaeng girls - the Korean equivalent of
geishas. Having absolute power in this secretive, closed country, he did not have to bother
with seduction. He simply had his henchmen kidnap anyone he wanted.
When any North Korean was asked how many children Kim Il-sung had, the answer
would always be: "We are all his children."
Kim Jong-suk meekly accepted her husband's womanizing. He also mistreated her. She
died in 1949, at the age of thirty-two. The rumours at the time were that she shot herself or
was poisoned. The official announcement was that she had died of a heart attack. Soon after
her death, Kim Il-sung married Kim Song-ae, a beautiful woman twenty years his junior. She
was already pregnant with their child, Kim Pyong-il.
Like father, like son - only more so. Kim Chong-il, who was groomed to take over from
his father when he died in the first dynastic succession in the Communist world, inherited his
father's taste for women. While working in the General Bodyguard Bureau, Kim Chong-il
married Hong II-chon. She was the daughter of a revolutionary and studied literature at
Kimilsung University. They had a daughter.
But Kim Chong-il was not faithful to her; and he beat her. They divorced in 1973. It was
also in 1973 that Kim Il-sung named Kim Chong-il as his successor. He appointed his son to
the politburo and made him Minister for Propaganda and Art. That same year Kim Chong-il
married a typist. They went on to have a son and two daughters. His second wife remains his
official consort, but she is far from being the only woman on the scene.
In the early 1970s, Kim Chong-il had sex with a nineteen-year-old movie star called Sun
Hye-rim. She was the wife of Li Pyong, the brother of one of Kim Chong-il's school friends.
When Sun Hye-rim became pregnant, the Party intervened and Li Pyong was forced to
divorce her. The relationship between Kim Chong-il and Sun Hye-rim continued, though Sun
Hye-rim and their illegitimate son, Kim Jung-nam, went to live in Moscow. Kim Chong-il
has at least seven other illegitimate children from similar encounters.
A singer from the Pyongyang Art Troupe drowned herself in the Daedong River after an
affair with Kim Chong-il in the late 1970s. Several other women have committed suicide
after he abandoned them.
He had an affair with Son Nui-rim, the sister of the North Korean ambassador to Russia.
They had two daughters, but he discarded her when she became mentally ill in 1991. She was
moved to Moscow, where she is cared for by her father.

Which supreme leader has more wisdom? 09.Jan.2004 05:20

learn from Libya

Gadhafi accepts the responsibility for the Lockerbie bombing terror in 1988 and compensates the innocent victims. He has done wrong, but he is able to learn.
Kim Jong Il has not displayed ability to learn. He has not the greatness to take the responsibility for KE 858 bombing terror in 1987. He has done wrong, but he denies and lies.
