Kim Jong Eun is married, North Korea confirms

By Chico Harlan, Thursday, July 26, 12:20 AM

TOKYO — North Korean state media on Wednesday revealed that leader Kim Jong Eun is married, a jarring announcement in a country that has long kept its first ladies nearly invisible.

The announcement ends weeks of speculation about the identity of a slender woman — with a stylish bob of hair — who’d accompanied Kim in several recent public appearances.

Inside North Korea: A rare visual tour inside the reclusive and secretive country.

Kim Jong Eun, North Korea’s ‘great successor’: Following the death of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il, the isolationist state has passed power to Kim’s youngest son, Kim Jong Eun, who is in his 20s.

State media identified the woman as Kim’s wife, “Comrade Ri Sol Ju.” But there was no mention of Ri’s age or of how long the couple has been married.

Rush coined the term "Gorbasm" to describe liberal's insane euphoria about Gorbachev as if he would have miraculously turned Soviet Union around and made it an socialist wonderland they had dreamt of for decades. Gorby had a fashionable wife, Raisa. Tabloid were abuzz with the unconfirmed story that she was even carrying American Express Gold Card. Soviets were show-casing diplomats and officials perfectly at ease with "sophisticated crowds" in the West. You would not believe the Soviet mania that swept the high society in U.S. Trust-fund kids were all rushing to learn Russians and take a first crack at new soon-to-be prosperous Soviet Union. Until his poorly thought-out economic policy went nowhere and angry KGB/military staged a coup that failed but led to breakup of Soviet Union. Then the mindless euphoria died instantly.

Could we see a similar version in N. Korea? The baby Chia is starting to show a similar style change. A fashionable wife and a Mickey Mouse concert in Pyongyang. He is also presenting half-cocked economic initiative which probably looks good on paper but may not amount to much. Angry military would not sit around and wait for its power cut to the bone. Baby Chia is reportedly saying, "We would provide guns and ammunitions, and military should just focus on war-fighting." This may sound harmless enough but is actually an unmistakable declaration of war against military's privilege. Since N. Korean state has been a Stalinist country for decades, its fall could be a whole lot uglier than Soviet Union under Gorbachev immediately preceded by the likes of Andropov, Chernenko, and Brezhnev. They are very lame for NK standard. I can picture journalists, academics, and leftwing establishments in SK will experience rapture. Foggy Bottom and Dems in U.S. may do the same. Until it ends in ugly and bloody breakup. Won't surprise me if baby Chia soon shows up in Armani suits. While tenaciously clining to nukes and ICBM's. We may see the birth of 'Kimbasm,' followed by Gotterdammerung.

I’ve always believed Rock Hudson was the best actor of his era.
He really had to act in those love scenes...

LOL! I was too young to know Rock Hudson, but my mom talks about him like he was the most amazing human being to walk on the planet and how she sequestered herself for two days after it came out that he was gay. That’s too funny.

Perhaps the diminutive dictator will get a fashion upgrade with a lady in his life. He’s always doing the drab pajama thing.

The key to Kim Il Sung’s success was Kim Jong Il, who designed the God worship of Sung. This clown is the first modern NK leader that doesn’t have Kim Jong Il.

I suspect he doesn’t have long.

He’s looking slimmer. The black pajamas are fitting looser.

If he’s really married, good for him.

Collectivism is still satanic, water parks or not.

This guy may be very different than his father or grand father. If so a lot of heads, if not taken, will have to removed to retirement.

The changeover may take a decade or so and I would be patient. The military will have to be handled and things could get rough at various points.

Yes, people miss that. It is an important point. Kim Jong-il was an master of NK's propaganda machine, dedicated to deification of his dad, and by extension his family. He turned the state into all propaganda and myth. The entire country behaved like Potemkin village. N. Koreans are all required to do their part. It is all giant fiction. No wonder the country is crashing.

If born in U.S., Chia Head would have been a movie director, perhaps not great, but above average in Hollywood standards.

Agreed. The pictures could be better, but so far the evidence points to ‘not guilty’

My mom said that she knew it for years....even said he was real swishy in real life.

This may be a video of her singing, according to some folks. She has close resemblance to a singer in the video. Probably true.
