On his visit to the Patriotic Martyrs Cemetery a September day, Chairman Kim Jong Il called the names of martyrs one by one as he saw their vivid stone photos. Before the one of table-tennis queen Pak Yong Sun, he recalled her with deep emotion.

Instructing that her stone photo should be changed into the one of her in military uniform, he said that she was in such uniform when she had a photograph taken with President Kim Il Sung after winning a crown and cup by taking the first place at the 33rd world table tennis championships.

Many photos of her in military uniform were broadcast, he said, and added that she looked nicer in such uniform than in plain clothes.
