Kim Jong Un has only held the title of “Chairman of the Board” so far. According to South Korean Yonhap News Agency, the change in title was driven by Kim’s desire to normalize his stance on the international stage.
Last month, North Korea’s Supreme Leader also took a new position. Then he was appointed general secretary of the party congress of the North Korean Workers’ Party, a title formerly assigned to his father, Kim Jong Il.
On Wednesday, Kim Jong On’s wife Ri Sol Jo appeared in the public eye for the first time in over a year. She appeared alongside her husband in Pyongyang at a concert that celebrated Bright Star Day, Kim’s father’s birthday and one of the most important holidays in the country. Pictures of the couple were published by the state newspaper Rodon Sinmun.
Rey has not been seen in the public domain since January of last year, causing fierce speculation about her health and possible pregnancy. According to South Korean intelligence agency NIS, Rhee appears to have abstained from public activities to avoid the Coronavirus, but she has been working for her children. According to the service, the spouses have three children.
Ri and Kim were photographed laughing as they watched the concert at the Mansudi Art Theater. It was striking that in the photos no one in the audience wore a face mask or turned away from them.
After the concert, Kim made his way to Kumswan Palace, where the mummified bodies of his grandfather and father were laid, to lay a wreath.
