Supreme leader Kim Jong Un enjoyed a performance "Song of Youth Following the Sun" given by the Art Squad of the Central Committee of the Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League.
The performance began with small choruses "Song of Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League" and "Joy of the People". Put on the stage were narrative poem and male solo "Golden Cushion", comic story "Name of Youth" and other numbers.
The performers sang high praises of the undying feats of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il who always regarded the importance to the youth as the most important affair of the revolution and laid an eternal foundation for building the power of the youth and the great personality of Kim Jong Un who is cultivating a large flower garden of love for the youth on this land.
They impressively represented the conviction that the country will always shed its brilliant rays all over the world as the power of the youth prospering full of dynamism as there is the most reliable huge contingent of young people in the world trained by the peerlessly great men of Mt. Paektu and the militant stamina and optimism of the young vanguard dashing ahead like wind toward the bright future in the spirit of the blizzards of Paektu.
The performance demonstrated the faith and will of the five million members of the young vanguard. It ended with small choruses "March of Korean Youth" and "We Will Defend General Kim Jong Un at the Cost of Our Lives".
Kim Jong Un repeatedly and highly estimated the performance, saying it proved that the 70 year-long history of the Workers' Party of Korea is a history of attaching importance to the youth and a history of having built the power of the youth and it is the best performance as it sensitively reflected the policies of the party. He added that it was pervaded with the spirit of the era as it dealt with all what he wanted to say to the youth and it is the most splendid performance he has ever watched till now.
