North KoreaThis is what Kim Jong-un’s daughter looks like
Little is known about the private life of the North Korean dictator. Now state media has published photos of Kim Jong Un with his daughter.
It’s about it
North Korea has released photos showing the daughter of dictator Kim Jong-un.
It was not clear what her name was and how old she was.
Little is known about the private life of the autocratic ruler.
North Korean state media has released photos of the daughter of ruler Kim Jong-un and his wife Ri Sol-ju for the first time. Kim was at the scene with his “beloved daughter and wife.” The ICBM launches was present on Friday, North Korean media reported on Saturday.
The youthful-looking daughter, who resembles her father, wore a white winter jacket and red boots in the photos. It was not clear what her name was and how old she was. The photo showed her and her father holding hands in front of a vehicle with a launcher that was to launch the missile, which South Korean media described as a “monstrous missile”.
Speculation about Kim’s successor
According to observers, the photos were apparently intended to demonstrate Kim’s self-confidence and his family ties. Nothing is known about internal discussions in the isolated country about a possible successor to Kim. South Korea’s intelligence service said last year that Kim’s younger and more influential sister, Kim Jo-jong, now appeared to be the “de facto number two leader”.
Little is known about the private life of the autocratic ruler. South Korean intelligence believes Kim and Ri have two daughters and a son. North Korea has never disclosed the existence of Kim’s children, South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported. Ri gave birth to a child in 2010, 2013 and 2017.
Kim, who South Korea says is 38 years old, was named supreme leader of the armed forces, party and state after the death of his father, Kim Jong-il, in late 2011. The Kim dynasty has ruled the impoverished but well-armed state for more than 70 years.
