NK News is hiring

One day in June 1998, Chairman Kim Jong Il visited Jagang Province.

That day, he asked a leading official of the province when worker representatives would arrive to see a congratulatory performance in the afternoon.

After hesitating for a moment as he feared that those from the remotest regions would not arrive in time, the official made a clean breast of the fact.

Then, the Chairman told him to delay the performance for an hour if it was difficult for them to arrive in time.

As the performance was prepared to congratulate the workers who created the Kanggye spirit, the work attitude of the Jagang provincial people, it would be meaningless without them, he said, adding that it should begin after the workers arrived even though the schedule was tight.

Therefore, he interrupted his schedule and waited for the worker representatives for an hour.
