Present-day Thaesong-ri

Date: 13/08/2020 | Source: Uriminzokkiri (En) | Read original version at source

A few hours’ drive along the Youth Hero Motorway from Pyongyang reaches a rural village nestled at the foot of the hills on the left. This is the seat of Thaesong-ri in Kangso District of Nampho.

Thaesong-ri is associated with the leadership exploits of President Kim Il Sung who visited it several times to acquaint himself with the livings of the farmers and explained what should be done to be better off.

When Lake Thaesong was built in the late 1950s to serve as a major source of the irrigation system in Nampho, the village was rebuilt at the present location and underwent several changes with the passage of time.

Recently, it facelifted its appearance as befits an ideal socialist village, thanks to the concerted efforts of the villagers and the builders from the city of Nampho.

In a little more than one year and a half they erected 110 odd dwelling blocks for more than 180 households, each block provided with all the facilities for living. Over ten public buildings, including Thaesong Health Complex, hall of culture, ri people’s hospital, agricultural sci-tech learning space, nursery and kindergarten, were newly constructed or reconstructed.

In the evening the cozy houses covered with fruit trees resound with merry laughter and loud singing of agricultural workers and their children, who are full of delight and optimism about bright future.
