GENEVA, SWITZERLAND – North Korea has now a Supreme Spouse. That is the official title of Ri Sol Ju who has married North Korean leader and former Bern resident Kim Jong Un.
Kim Jong Un, who inherited rule from his father, Kim Jong Il, had been seen with Ri at a concert, a kindergarten visit and other events recently.
BBC reports that Ri studied science and is from an upper-class family, her father being a professor and her mother an obstetrician. The wife of North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un is a former singer who caught the leader’s eye while she was giving a performance, South Korean media said Thursday after Pyongyang disclosed the marriage.
