So this is finally the story that will settle all previously looming controversies and arguments about the mysterious lady that was seen with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un!
Behold – the ‘mystery’ lady is now his wife. The country’s official state broadcaster made the revelation after weeks of speculation over the identity of a woman who accompanied North Korean leader in his previous engagements.
Named as Ri So-Ju by the media, she is believed to be in her twenties or early thirties. State television said Ri took part in the recent ceremony that marked the completion of Pyongyang Amusement Park. Before the ultimate disclosure about her identity took place there were gazillion speculations making rounds.
North Korean watchers in South Korea say that she was Hyon Song-wol, a former singer with the Bochonbo Electronic Music Band. However, information that stands verified is that Ri is the same woman who was disliked by Kim Jong-un’s father Kim Jong Il.
The dislike went to the extent that Kim’s late father told his son to end the relationship almost a decade ago. As a result of this Ri ended up marrying a North Korean army officer.
Other guesswork regarding her identity suggested that the mystery woman might be a younger sister. With the mysteries getting resolved there is one more important development that has taken place.
Kim’s father demise turned out to be a blessing in disguise for him to pursue his romantic relationship after he returned home from his studies at a private academy in Switzerland.
