[Compiled by Zhou Hongwen/Comprehensive Report]The North Korean Labor Party’s official newspaper “Rodong Sinmun” reported on the 17th that North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-un and his wife Li Xuezhu went to the Mansudae Art Theater in the capital Pyongyang to watch his father on the 16th Nikko Star Festival. The commemorative performance of the seventy-ninth birthday of the late former supreme leader Kim Jong Il. This is the first public appearance of Li Xuezhu in more than a year. Judging from the official photos, the audience did not wear masks and did not wear pandemic prevention plum blossoms. The South Korean Yonhap News Agency (Yonhap News Agency) believes that the North Korean authorities should use this to show their confidence in their own epidemic prevention efforts.

It is believed that the 32-year-old Li Xuezhu last appeared to watch the Spring Festival commemorative performance at the Samjiyeon Theater in Pyongyang on January 25th last year. Related speculations from the outside world include that she was pregnant and gave birth to a child and had a relationship with Kim Jong-un. However, the South Korean National Intelligence Service concluded on the 16th that she should have chosen not to leave home due to the epidemic affecting her children.

The US “NK News” website analyzed on the 28th last month that Li Xuezhu, who used to set off Kim Jong-un in public in the past as the first lady, disappeared from public eyes for a year, which means that Kim Jong-un does not care whether he is in the eyes of the outside world at this stage. For image issues such as “normal world leaders”, because substantive issues such as the domestic economy need to be resolved more urgently, anyway, diplomatic interactions between countries have just stopped due to the epidemic.

For more than a year since the world fell into Wuhan pneumonia, North Korea has always claimed to have zero confirmed cases, although the outside world has always been suspicious, because it borders and has close relations with China, which led the outbreak the year before. According to a report by the US “Wall Street Journal” on the 4th of last month, North Korea has applied for the Wuhan pneumonia vaccine from the “Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization” (Gavi).
