Kim Jong Un: Father and Son Happy to Marry Dancing & Singing Wives

Translator’s Note: This is an English translation of the original Chinese language text entitled ‘金正恩父子为都啥乐意找能歌善舞的妻子’ or, ‘King Jong Un: Father and Son Happy to Marry Dancing & Sing Wives’. The tone of the article is inquisitive, whilst also presenting interesting facts about this reclusive country. It is revealed, for instance, that despite the fact that the North Korean regime was originally premised upon the Soviet model of Marxist-Leninist thinking, both the founder of regime – Kim Il Sung – and his son – Kim Jong Il – both exhibited typical Confucian attitudes with regards to leadership and their relations with the opposite sex. Kim Jong Il had four wives, for instance, whilst Kim Il Sung refused to recognise the validity (and off-spring) of his first marriage! Of course, these attitudes are really the continuation of Korean feudalistic thinking within a framework of supposed Socialist development – a contradiction that cannot be correct, as imperialistic attitudes such as this belong to the historical stage of feudalism, which pre-exists the development of both Capitalism and Socialism! ACW 22.11.14

Korea is a mysterious country. It is mysterious because if you want to learn anything about the country, it is virtually impossible to gain any knowledge from North Korean official sources. Instead, knowledge must be gained from foreign news agencies, or from intelligence sources to form an opinion. This often means that what is believed to be true about North Korea is mostly speculation. The North Korean people are strange, however, as they appear to accept and ‘enjoy’ (享受 – Xiang Shou) the suffering, and retain an attitude of continuous brooding – this helps to maintain the sense of ‘mystery’ about North Korea in the eyes of the outer world.

Logic dictates that the ‘First Lady’ (第一夫人 – Di Yi Fu Ren) of a country, should be very famous, as her presence attracts extensive interest from the world media, as well as ordinary people. Often this attention is greater than that afforded to her husband – the president, or prime minister, etc. When travelling abroad, the leader’s wife often acts as his right-hand, and is seen to take the initiative in formal engagements and initiate introductions.

North Korea’s office of ‘first lady’ is as mysterious as the country she represents. Foreign media reports abound with stories relating to the marriages of Kim Jong Il (金正日). It is asserted that he had four marriages – which included one wife ‘to play around with’, an ‘intermediate’ wife, and two others. As a teenager, Kim Jong Il was very good and married a film actress – having a child with her. However, his father (and founder of the North Korean State) Kim Il Sung (金日成) refused to recognise this marriage, despite the fact that this film actress gave birth to a son named Kim Jong Nam (金正男). This meant that Kim Jong Nam – despite being the eldest son of Kim Jong Il – could not follow in his father’s footsteps and inherit the leadership of North Korea.

Kim Jong Un was the child of Kim Jong Il’s ‘legal’ (法定 – Fa Ding) wife. Although this lady was Kim Jong Il’s ‘legal’ wife, she was never officially recognised whilst he was alive. Even the foreign media did not speculate on this matter. However, it turned-out that North Korea’s ‘First Lady’ – and the mother of Kim Jong Un – was a beautiful Japanese-Korean dancer. Photographs of her performing can be easily found online. None of this was known until the death of Kim Jong Il and the succession of his son – Kim Jong Un. For some unknown political reason at that time, the story was brought to light in North Korea (and the world). Kim Jong Un’s mother is Ko Young Hee (高英姬), and when her son came to power, a eulogising film was made about her in North Korea and released in May, 2012. It was only screened for the members of the Korean People’s Army and leading cadres. The film features key events from the lives of Kim Jong il and Ko Young Hee, and in so doing, the mystery surrounding the subject was finally lifted for some North Koreans.

During the tenure of Kim Jong Un, the mystery surrounding this matter seems to have eased a little. This is evident from the fact that in public places, there is always a beautiful and elegant young lady who discreetly follows Kim Jong Un as he goes about his duties. Obviously this has led to much speculation amongst the foreign media. The speculations have been that this woman was either Kim Jong Un’s sister – or his wife. Later, this woman was indeed revealed to be Kim Jong Un’s wife. It also transpired that this mysterious woman was a very famous singer.

This relative openness may well be the result of Kim Jong Un’s studying abroad and gaining far more experience than his father – who never flew on an aeroplane…

On July 25th, 2012, the Korean Central News Agency announced that the Supreme Leader of North Korea – Marshall Kim Jong Un and his wife Li Xue Zhu (李雪珠) – attended the opening ceremony of a new amusement park. Soldiers, builders, and female workers presented Kim Jong Un with bouquets of flowers. Kim Jong Un stated at the time that even greater efforts must be made if:

‘The people are to enjoy the benefits of the most favourable conditions available for cultural life.

The foreign media immediately seized upon the fact that this woman was the ‘First Lady’ of North Korea, and in so doing the countries of the developed world saw through the mystery – even though for many North Koreans, reliable information about their own country is often scarce to come by, or thin on the ground. Now, in contemporary North Korea, the veil of mystery surrounding the ‘First Lady’ has been lifted regarding two generations – namely Kim Jong Il and his wife Ko Young Hee, and Kim Jong Un and his wife Li Xue Zhu. Ko Young Hee was a dancer, whilst Li Xue Zhu was a singer – therefore it can be truthfully said that for both leaders of North Korea, they preferred ‘First Ladies’ who were dancers and singers.

How is it that two leading political figures such as Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un are willing to accept dancers and singers as their wives? The fact of the matter is that beauty is everywhere and the human heart is unpredictable and knows no bounds. Marriages based upon ‘love’ and ‘affection’ cannot be ‘planned’, such as is the case of ‘arranged marriages’.  Father and son are obviously both happy to have wives who are performers – simply because they are able to perceive the beauty of their hearts. As the people of North Korea are diverse, this ‘realisation’ reflects the beauty of the North Korean nation. This is why the ‘First Lady’ of North Korea can be a singer – for this fact Kim Jong Un can be forgiven.

金正恩父子为都啥乐意找能歌善舞的妻子

朝鲜是个神秘的国度。它的神秘在于,你想知道的事情,你很难通过官方消息知道,只能靠国外情报去判断和猜测。人也怪,猜测是件很痛苦的事情,但是,人们似乎很愿意“享受”这种痛苦,总是为这种痛苦去苦思冥想。朝鲜引人关注,就在于它的“神秘”……

按道理,国家的“第一夫人”应该都很有名气的。国人对“第一夫人”的关注度甚至超过总统、总理之类。往往“第一夫人”的穿戴,会引领国内妇女穿戴的新潮流。开放国家的“一把手”出国访问,夫人似乎从来不离左右。出于礼节, “一把手”往往会主动把“第一夫人”介绍给多方。

朝鲜之所以神秘,包括“第一夫人”。比如,金正日的夫人一直很神秘。国外媒体报道,金正日婚姻的故事很多。有的说他有四次婚姻,最“有戏”的是“中间”两次。一个是比金正日大好几岁的,结过婚、并有孩子的女电影演员。这档婚姻没得到金日成的认可。虽然金正日娶了这位女演员,并生下大儿子金正男。但是,由于没有得到领袖父亲的认可,所以这门婚姻也就不名正言顺了。金正男不能接父亲的班,也正是如此.

金正恩的母亲是金正日“法定”妻子。虽然“法定”,在金正日活着的时候,从来没有官方消息。但是国外没少报道金正日夫人的消息。金正恩的母亲是位日籍朝鲜族漂亮的女舞蹈演员。这位朝鲜“第一夫人”的舞蹈照片很容易在网上找到。然而,直到金正日去世、金正恩接班之后,为了某种政治需要,才再现天日。朝鲜制作了一部歌颂金正恩母亲高英姬的纪录片,于今年5月面向朝鲜人民军主要干部公开放映。片中收录了高英姬和丈夫金正日出席活动等影像,其神秘面纱终被揭开……

到了金正恩“时代”,朝鲜之神秘略有缓解。比如在公开场合,总有一位漂亮的、气质高雅的年轻女性跟随金正恩左右,这必然会引起国外媒体的重视。于是,开始猜测了,刚开始,有的猜测是金正恩的妹妹,有猜测是金正恩的妻子。后来更认定是他妻子,而且说那位神秘女子是位很著名的歌唱演员。

后来者居上,毕竟金正恩有过海外留学的经历,这比他那位从来没做过飞机的父亲开化得多……

据朝中社7月25日报道,朝鲜最高领导人金正恩元帅携夫人李雪珠当天出席了首都平壤绫罗人民游乐园竣工仪式。报道说,金正恩携夫人李雪珠出席了当天的竣工仪式,军人建设者和女性劳动者向金正恩敬献花束。金正恩指出,要作出更多努力,“让我们的人民享有最优越的文化生活条件”。

国外媒体说对了,这位神秘的女性真是“第一夫人“!看来,在神秘国度里的神秘,只是“神秘”了国人,在信息发达的世界里,根本就没有神秘可言……

到如今,金正日夫人高英姬,金正恩的妻子李雪珠两代“第一夫人”的面纱终于揭开了。

金正日夫人高英姬善舞;金正恩妻子李雪珠能歌,两位“第一夫人”加起来是“能歌善舞”……

那么,为什么金正恩父子都乐意找能歌善舞的演员当妻子呢?

其实,不管你官儿当多大,不管你把自己“包装”得有多么“高大全”,在情感婚姻上,最能体现出人的本性。爱美之心人皆有之,何况在儿女情长上……

金正恩父子都乐意找能歌善舞的演员的妻子,一方面体现出爱美之心,也有能力“实现”爱美之心;一方面是朝鲜民族是个能歌善舞的民族,那么,能歌善舞的“尖子”女演员,更应该体现出“民族之美”。所以,就这一点来看,金正恩父子都乐意找能歌善舞的演员的妻子,也就情有可原了……
