Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, enjoyed an art performance staged by the amateur art groups of KPA units selected in the sixth round of the second-term art performance contest of KPA officers' wives.
They were members of art groups of officers' wives of KPA Units 567, 526, 337, 534, 963 and KPA Navy.
The performers truthfully represented the noble ideological and moral world of officers' wives living in an optimistic and revolutionary manner, deeply cherishing the confidence in victory that the prosperity of the socialist country and the happiness of their wives lie in trusting and following Kim Jong Un only.
They impressively sang of the boundless pride and self-esteem and an optimistic and joyful life of the officers' wives who have grown to be proud women revolutionaries upholding the Songun revolutionary leadership of the WPK on the first line of defence amid the profound loving care and trust of Kim Jong Un. They, at the same time, truthfully depicted the dedication being made by the officers' wives as assistants to their husbands and mothers of soldiers.
At the end of the performance Kim Jong Un waved back to the enthusiastic cheers of the performers and congratulated them on their successful presentation.
He said they staged all numbers firmly based on the reality and made a profound ideological and artistic depiction of important socio-political issues arising in the struggle and life of the people in the Songun era. He highly appreciated the performance as one imbued with the monolithic ideology of the party and the one dealing with party policies like a program for lectures on those policies.
Noting that they created and staged art works strong in agitation and appeal on the themes of the undying exploits performed by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il in their units and the important policy issues of the party at present, he expressed great satisfaction over the performance of great cognitional and educational value and perfect in ideological and artistic contents. He extended thanks to them in the name of the supreme commander of the KPA.
The performance once again proved the very ennobling ideological and moral qualities of the officers' wives taking the lead in implementing the party policy on mass-based culture and art true to the noble intention of Kim Jong Il, who initiated the contest and put it on a traditional basis, he said, adding he was greatly encouraged to hear the voices of the members of the art groups of officers' wives absolutely supporting the party policies.
He expressed the expectation and belief that members of the art groups of the above-said units would conduct more brisk mass-based cultural and art activities to powerfully arouse the service personnel and people to the national defence and the construction of a powerful socialist country. Then he had a photo session with them.
Among the audience were commanding officers of the KPA.
