Village turned into street

One day in September Juche 77 (1988), Chairman Kim Jong Il accompanied President Kim Il Sung to look round the then Angol Sports Village which had been built into a modern and comprehensive sports and cultural area.

At the front yard of the Table-Tennis Gymnasium after going round it, the Chairman expressed satisfaction over the fact that all gymnasiums are unique and good-looking. Expressing his opinion of renaming the sports village, he laughed a hearty laugh, saying that the current name Angol (inner village) is unfashionable and it sounds like Pakkatgol (outer village) also exists.

Feasting his eyes on distinctively-built gymnasiums, he said that the sports village is similar to a street as it has many gymnasiums.

As the sports village has an independent feature, it should not be included in Kwangbok Street, he said. He added that it should be newly named as the construction was completed though it had been called Angol before.

Therefore, the Angol Sports Village was renamed the Sports Village on Chongchun Street.
