Displayed at the Party Founding Museum, where the Workers’ Party of Korea was founded, is a photo familiar to the Korean people.

It is the one of President Kim Il Sung taken with Kim Chaek (August 14, 1903-January 31, 1951), an anti-Japanese revolutionary fighter and vice-premier of the Cabinet of the DPRK.

On the last evening of 1948, when the national flag was fluttering and the Song of the Proclamation of People’s Republic was resounding across the country liberated from the Japanese military occupation on August 15, 1945, Kim Chaek went to the office room of Kim Il Sung , the then Premier of the Cabinet, to extend New Year greetings.

Kim Il Sung welcomed him and looked back on the previous year, highly appreciating him not only for standing in the vanguard of building the Party and the army but for working efficiently for building the state after national liberation,.

Then he proposed posing for a photo together in memory of the unforgettable year of 1948, saying: People say that a photo recalls the memory of the past life. We have been so busy so far that we have had no occasion to pose for a photo together.

Then he said to the photographer that he wanted to take a good photo with Kim Chaek as his comrade, not a formal photo taken between the Premier and Vice-Premier.

Saying that he would take the photo well so that the Premier could see it over and over again, the photographer released the shutter.

The photo between Kim Il Sung and Kim Chaek was taken as seen above.

Kim Il Sung kept this meaningful photo in his safe until the last moment of his life. The photo is a precious heritage he bequeathed to the coming generations as a symbol of revolutionary comradeship.
