She’s Hidden Away Even From The Rest Of North Korea

The people of North Korea love their leaders, to the point where the cult of personality that’s developed around the ruling family for the last half-century has become one of the most committed in the world.

The general populace of the nation has been conditioned to only love and admire their leaders, so it’s weird to not see them get the chance to also love their First Lady as they would any other leader.

Ri Sol-ju has always been kept out of the public eye for a variety of stated reasons, disappearing for years at a time before ever being seen again by the rest of the globe and North Korea’s people.

It’s a practice that Kim Jong-un picked up from his father, who reportedly had a whole host of wives and consorts that never saw the light of day. But it’s a strange and scary practice to still preach.
