President Kim Il Sung visited Chongsan-ri on May 31, 1948 for the first time after the liberation of Korea from Japanese colonial rule in 1945.

While looking round it for firsthand leadership he was informed by its officials that its peasants got far better-off than before after the agrarian reform. He suggested examining their living conditions in actuality and called on an old man at his house.

He warmly took the latter by the hand although it was roughened by farm work. He fully acquainted himself with his domestic life. He then proceeded to enter the kitchen of his house and lifted the lid of a cooking pot.

The pot was full of boiled potatoes. On seeing them he had a shadow pass over his face. He asked the latter if he lived on potatoes alone.

He replied that his grandchildren enjoyed them as snacks between meals.

Presently Kim Il Sung asked the old man where he had his food grain in store.

The latter approached his grain chests and uncovered them one by one as if to boast of them.

The chests were full of polished rice. Kim Il Sung was hugely delighted to see it and said with satisfaction that the old man would not have a hard in managing his home.

He warmly looked after the lives of peasants in Chongsan-ri but did not rest contented with their welfare. That day he told its officials and peasants to strive mightily to develop it into a model village where all its peasants were well-to-do.

One January he visited Chongsan-ri desite the rigors of midwinter. He warmly said that cold-bed rice seedlings must be bedded out a lot in the Chongsan Cooperative Farm to increase its rice yields and that when rice seedlings were raised in frames covered with vinyl foils they grew well and that it helped save much labor. When he visited the farm he personally calculated how many tractors were needed for its agricultural work. He told Chongsan-ri to do its farm work with machines well. He said that he would give it the standard number of farm machines first thing and emphasized that it must dynamically push ahead with its agricultural mechanization and set an example to others. One day he looked round modern dwellings under construction in Chongsan-ri one by one and even drew their designs on a sheet of paper in person to make its farmers entirely comfortable.

More than half a century has passed since then. But we will always remember that Kim Il Sung shed full light on the highly important guidelines on the development of the socialist rural economy and leadership over the masses.

Indeed, great advances could be made in Chongsan-ri thanks to Kim Il Sung who devoted his all to the people and surely led them to bring about incessant upswings in their revolution and construction.
