Anecdote about Kim Jong Il

Pyongyang, February 23 (KCNA) -- It happened early in summer of 1999 when General Secretary Kim Jong Il gave field guidance to an unit of the Korean People's Army.

Looking round various places of the unit, he showed profound loving care for its soldiers.

He had a photo session with them.

As it was over, he asked them to sing in chorus.

No sooner had they finished their enthusiastic chorus than he warmly clapped hands, asking for an encore.

After their chorus was over, he again gave them a big hand.

He said that the soldiers sang very well, adding that he was very glad to see the well-built soldiers.

It was known later that he delayed the departure from the unit that day, asking them to sing the chorus again because he was reluctant to say goodbye to them.
