The Story associated with Lake Yonphung

Date: 10/04/2021 | Source: Uriminzokkiri (En) | Read original version at source

One day in May, Juche 45 (1956), President Kim Il Sung inspected the Lake Yonphung to look around the finished Phyongnam irrigation facilities.

Wearing a broad smile on his face, he commanded a bird’s eye view of the lake for a while.

When officials asked him with respect to name the lake, he said that it would be right for them to do it.

They pleaded that it was their unanimous wish. He accepted their request with a smile. And then he was lost in thought for a moment.

The President told them that the lake was the “firstborn”of irrigation in our country and now that Phyongnam irrigation had been completed it would draw water into the Yoldusamcholli Plain. Then he named the reservoir “Lake Yonphung”to the effect that we would have a good harvest yearly.

Officials, raising a shout of joy to his proposal, could not repress their emotions.

President Kim Il Sung not only took the initiative and wisely led the Phyongnam irrigation project but personally gave its name.
