On January 8, Kim Jong-un’s birthday, the Workers’ Daily, the official newspaper of the Workers’ Party of Korea, revealed a heartwarming episode of the leader’s life.

The story goes back to September of 2012. It took place at the Munsu swimming pool, a water park in Pyongyang that was being built at the behest of Kim Jong-un. At the time, Kim Jong-un was focusing on building leisure facilities to enrich the leisure time of the people, such as the Mirim Riding Club and the Masinryeong Ski Resort.

According to the Labor News, Kim Jong-un suddenly showed up alone at the construction site of the Monsyu swimming pool in the middle of the night. He drove his beloved car. Those who were at the site were astonished. It is said that he made a detailed inspection of the facility just before its completion,” said a reporter from a South Korean newspaper.

Kim Jong-un has launched his second missile this year. (South Korean newspaper reporter) Kim Jong-un launched his second missile this year, and we wonder what the intention of the “Labor Daily” was in publishing the episode of his “late-night drive”. Mr. Gao Yongqi, editor-in-chief of Daily NK Japan, who is an expert on the situation on the Korean Peninsula, tells us.

This is not the first time that the North Korean media has introduced a story about Kim Jong-un visiting a construction site alone. This is not the first time that the North Korean media has introduced stories of Kim Jong-un visiting construction sites alone, etc. They probably want to create the impression that Kim Jong-un is thinking of his people and working late into the night. With the economy under pressure due to UN sanctions, the spread of the new coronavirus, and natural disasters, even an autocratic leader can’t ignore public sentiment.

Tragic consequences for the divisional commander who overtook him

Kim Jong-un is known to be a big car enthusiast. In August 2008, Korean Central Television (KCTV) reported that Kim Jong-un had toured the flood-damaged county of Ongpa in the southern North Hwanghae Province. The TV showed footage of Kim Jong-un sitting in the driver’s seat of a black Lexus LX570, which was stained with mud. South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency said, “It is hard to imagine that Kim Jong-un drove himself to the site, which is 150 kilometers from Pyongyang, but it is possible that he took the wheel at the site.

However, the stories about Kim Jong-un’s love of cars are not all “heartwarming”. There is also this horror story. Mr. Ko continues.

At the beginning of 2010, a special car belonging to the division commander of the 4th Corps of the Korean People’s Army stationed in Hwanghae-nam-do in central Korea was heading to Pyongyang late at night to attend an important meeting. He was driving an SUV, the Paladin. It is the latest luxury car in North Korea, given to military and party officials.

As the division commander’s car was galloping along the highway, a car that had once overtaken him came at him at a high speed. The car was a Mercedes-Benz S600. The car was a Mercedes-Benz S600, an ultra-luxury car that not even party officials could drive. The division commander and the driver were very upset.

As the Mercedes-Benz overtook the division commander’s car, it came to a sudden stop. When the window rolled down, the young man in the driver’s seat gave the division commander a quick glance and left without saying a word.

It seems that the young man was Kim Jong-un before he became the leader. The young man seemed to be Kim Jong-un before he became the leader, and he had been chosen as the successor to his father, Kim Jong-il. And …… the division commander was not present at the meeting the next day. He was probably executed by Kim Jong-un, who was angry that he was overtaken while he was enjoying a drive.

When it comes to cars, North Korean leaders have no shortage of episodes. There is no shortage of stories about North Korean leaders when it comes to cars, and these stories give us a glimpse of Kim Jong-un’s humanity.
