Kim Jong Un’s wife has appeared in public for the first time in months. Li Sol Chu has not been seen since early September.
Along with the North Korean leader and his influential aunt, she was among the audience at a theatrical performance in Pyongyang. According to South Korean intelligence, the couple has three children, but almost nothing is known about them.
The presence of Kim Jong Un’s aunt was also interesting. She has not been seen in public for two years. It is believed that while the leader was young and inexperienced, the sister of the previous leader Kim Jong Il strengthened her nephew’s power.
For many, this support came as a surprise. It is alleged that at the beginning of his rule, Kim Jong Un ordered the execution of his aunt’s husband for treason.
