Kim Jong Un's Daughter Was Seen For The First Time In Public
Kim Jong Un's daughter was seen for the first time in public.Kim Jong Un, the leader of North Korea, showed the world his daughter for the first time on Saturday. He did this with striking photos of the two of them watching the launch of the country's largest ballistic missile.
On Friday, the girl, who is thought to be named Kim Chu-ae, joined him at an inspection of a big intercontinental ballistic missile launch. Mr. Kim is the leader of one of the world's most secretive countries, and nothing is known about his personal life.
Analysts have been much more interested in Kim Jong Un's daughter than in the successful launch of North Korea's most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile, which could hit the United States.
Michael Madden, a North Korea researcher at the Stimson Center in Washington, told the BBC that Chu-ae was between the ages of 12 and 13. He speculated that Mr. Kim's public appearance could be his means of demonstrating "that the fourth generation of power succession will come through my [blood] line."
Several North Korean specialists said in September that Chu-ae appeared in a film during the country's National Day celebrations. However, this was only a supposition, and the North Korean leadership did not clarify whether or not it was the leader's daughter.
Mr. Rodman stated that he spent time relaxing by the sea with Mr. Kim's family and "holding their infant Chu-ae." Experts say Mr. Kim has three children, two girls, and a boy, with Chu-ae being the oldest. However, the leader is incredibly private about his family; even his wife, Ri Sol-ju, was kept a secret until after the couple married.
Kim Jong Un's daughter seen in first public appearance
Kim Jong Un's daughter's appearance is interesting to many because this revelation exposes so much about the regime's future and nuclear weapons development. Or, at the very least, it raises some interesting questions.
First, does this imply that she will eventually rule North Korea as Kim Jong Un's successor? Yes, most likely. Given that this is a family dynasty, Mr. Kim will prefer one of his children to assume leadership.
Second, why reveal her at this time? She is a really young woman. Could the fact that he is grooming her to take charge indicate that the 38-year-old leader is ill? Many theories surround his health, which is thought to be the largest threat to the continuity of the regime.
Thirdly, what does this indicate about North Korea's nuclear weapons program? Her public unveiling at such an important event means that she will eventually contribute to the nation's weaponry development. Mr. Kim recently said that, in any case, he would not be handing up his nuclear weapons. This is a means of demonstrating to the world that his nukes will be in use well into the future.
Kim Jong-un is North Korea's top leader. He took over in 2011 and has been in charge for more than a decade. He is the son of Kim Jong II. From 1994 to 2011, Kim Jong-il was the second leader of North Korea.
King Jong-un, like his predecessors, maintains his authoritarian rule through a cult of personality. He has grown North Korea's consumer economy and nuclear program while in office, and he is in charge of purging or putting to death North Korean leaders.
Reports from the media say that Kim Jong-un went to school in Switzerland. The International School of Berne in Gümligen, Switzerland, has sometimes been linked to the Kim Jong family. In 2009, the Washington Post reported that Kim Jong-un went to Switzerland in 1998 to study at the Liebefeld-Steinholzli Schule. There, he took the name "Pak Un."
The Liebefeld-Steinhölzli school verified in a statement that a North Korean son of an embassy official attended between 1998 and 2000. Basketball was his hobby. Kim Jong-un attended the Kim Il-sung National WarCollege in Pyongyang from 2002 to 2007.
When Kim Jong Un was promoted to four-star general, it was the first time his name was formally mentioned in official state communications. Even though many analysts expected Kim Jong Un to be elevated to the position of the nation's future leader during the high-profile party meeting, most also expected him to be less militarily focused. Even though Kim Jong-un had never been in the military before September 2010, he was given the rank of four-star general.
The promotion to four-star general took place in conjunction with the ruling Korean Workers' Party's first general assembly since 1980 when Kim Jong-Il was chosen as Kim II Sung's successor.
North Korea conducted an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) test on Saturday, according to the state newsagency. The biggest shock, though, was that Kim's daughter was there. Her existence had never been confirmed in public before.
In fact, the news agency did not give the girl's name. In pictures, she is wearing a white puffy coat and holding her father's hand as they look at a huge missile.
Experts say Kim might have as many as three kids (two girls and a boy). Some people thought they had seen one of those children on video from September celebrations for a national holiday.
