North Korean leader married

Congratulations are in order for North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un—we’re just sad we missed the wedding.

The woman who, in recent weeks, has been seen accompanying Kim to state functions is his new wife. In a ceremony honouring the completion of an amusement park in Pyongyang, the woman was identified as “Comrade Ri Sol-ju, wife of marshal Kim Jong-un”, according to The New York Times.

South Korean intelligence initially thought the woman was Kim’s ex-girlfriend, Hyon Song-wol, a former North Korean pop star. His new wife is a singer as well.

Kim’s father, Kim Jong-il, was much more private about his personal life. His wife was never seen on television. Kim may be following more in the steps of his grandfather, North Korean founder Kim Il Sung, who was often shown with his wife and children.

There are no official record of when the wedding might have taken place.
