North Korea Releases New Photos of Kim Jong Un’s Daughter

North korea releases new photos of kim jong un's daughter

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “North Korea Releases New Photos of Kim Jong Un’s Daughter” – below is their description.

North Korea’s leader took his daughter to a meeting with missile scientists in her second public appearance, in which state media called her Kim Jong Un’s “most beloved” child, deepening outside debate over whether she is being primed as his successor.

The daughter, believed to Kim’s second child named Ju Ae and about 9 or 10 years old, was first unveiled to the outside world last weekend in state media photos showing her observing the North’s intercontinental ballistic missile launch the previous day with her parents and other older officials.

On Sunday, the North’s state media mentioned her for the second time, saying she and Kim took group photos with scientists, technicians, officials and other workers involved in what it called the test-launch of its Hwasong-17 ICBM.

KCNA described her as Kim’s “most beloved” or “precious” child, a more honorific title than her previous description of “(Kim’s) beloved” child on its November 19 dispatch.

It also released a slew of photos showing the daughter in a long, black coat with a black fur collar, holding her father’s arm.

One photo showed the two of them standing in the middle of a line of uniformed soldiers before a massive missile atop a launch truck.

Others showed Kim’s daughter clapping her hands or talking to her father as people cheered in the background.

Taking after her mother Ri Sol Ju, who wasn’t visible in any of the photos on Sunday, she had a more mature appearance than in pictures a week ago.

South Korean media previously speculated Kim has three children — born in 2010, 2013 and 2017 — and that the first child is a son while the youngest is a daughter.
