How much do you know about Kim Yo-jong & Hyon Song-wol of North Korea

Kim Yo-jong, the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s only sister is drawing attention as she stood right in the front at a welcoming ceremony for Chinese President Xi Jinping’s recent visit to Pyongyang. Kim, who was born as the daughter of Kim Jong-il and Ko Yong-hui in 1988, is said to have a close relationship with her brother Kim Jong-un, due to shared isolated years while studying together in Switzerland from 1996 to 2000. Seoul’s National Intelligence Service confirmed that she now seems to be on the same level as the likes of Choe Ryong-hae, who firmly holds onto his role as the de facto No. 2 man in the country. On the other hand, Hyon Song-wol, head of the North’s Samjiyon Orchestra and the Moranbong Band, seemed to take over Kim’s previous role in protocol. Therefore, some even say that Kim Yo-jong and Hyon Song-wol are the most powerful women in North Korea today. 

How much do you know Ri Sol-ju, the wife of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un?

The wife of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has appeared in state media reports following a four-month absence from public view. Ri Sol-ju was seen in photos released on Wednesday accompanying Kim on his "field guidance" trip to the Mount Kumgang resort on the country's scenic east coast. It was her first reported public activity since June, though her name was not mentioned among those who followed Kim on his trip to the mountain. She was last seen in public when Chinese President Xi Jinping made his first visit to Pyongyang on June 20 and 21. After that, she disappeared from state media reports for more than 120 days, with Kim making public appearances without her. Ri’s relatively long disappearance from state media reports was considered unusual. Since state media began referring to her as “first lady” last year, instead of “comrade”, she was usually mentioned in media reports at least once a month.

Life in North Korea | DW Documentary

Are people in North Korea allowed to laugh, dance and marry? This documentary provides unique insights on everyday life in the East Asian country, which most people associate with dictatorship, military parades and nuclear missile testing. Perhaps no other country in the world is as mysterious as North Korea. In the West, it’s known as the last Stalinist dictatorship, the land of dictator Kim Jong Un, bombastic military parades and nuclear missile tests. And it is actually quite difficult to look beyond the political and examine the daily life of 25 million North Koreans. Are they allowed to laugh, dance and marry? What do they eat? Where do they go on holiday? These simple questions are difficult to answer given the isolation of the population from the rest of the world. The filmmakers behind Have Fun in Pyongyang visited people who have lived in the isolated mountainous nation for three generations. Over eight years, they visited North Korea forty times to attend festivals and harvest ceremonies, visit factories and listen to singing contests, in the process catching surprising, fascinating and bizarre glimpses of everyday life in North Korea. The documentary gives us an insight into North Korean life and helps us understand how the impoverished, isolated country has survived the end of the Cold War, the famine of the 1990s that cost hundreds of thousands their lives, and the never-ending diplomatic and military conflicts.

Daily life in North Korea - “My Brothers and Sisters in the North” (Full awarded documentary)

Award-winning documentary filmmaker Sung-Hyung Cho was the first South Korean filmmaker to ever receive an official permit to film in North Korea. Traveling the country, she accompanies ordinary people during their everyday life and work routines, talking to them about their hopes and dreams. The resulting film ventures beyond the usual clichés and portrays the country and its people in a unique and respectful way. Growing up in South Korea, Cho was taught in school that her Northern neighbors had red skin and two horns on their heads. With her film, she took the chance to bid farewell to her prejudices and revise her preconceived image of people in North Korea.

N. Korea hands even more power to sister of Chairman Kim, and turns on S. Korea

Among all the drama and tragedy of 2020 so far, North Korea tensions seem to be only warming up. Having cut off all communications with South Korea, and vowed to treat the South as an "enemy" again, the North effectively confirmed a plot twist that close readers of the situation would have seen coming. Interestingly though, a central character in this story is leader Kim Jong-un's sister, Kim Yo-jong. Her position as second-in-command, while not official, looks increasingly like an accepted reality

Who could follow Kim Jong Un as North Korea's next leader? | DW News

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un has not been seen publicly since chairing a Worker's Party meeting on April 11. Rumors about his health began swirling after he failed to attend the birthday celebrations of his grandfather and the country's founder, Kim Il Sung, on April 15, an event that marks the most important day in the North Korean political calendar. Leadership in North Korea has operated as a quasi-monarchy ever since Kim Il Sung took power. Although Kim Jong Un efficiently consolidated power, there is no indication that he designated an heir. The most likely family member to succeed Kim Jong Un as political leader seems to be his sister, Kim Yo Jong.
