Yuk Yong Chol, Chairman of the Kangwon Provincial Committee of the Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League, gave a report:
“On May the 2nd, our Kangwon Province witnessed an unprecedented happy event. The bronze statues of Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il were unveiled in a grand ceremony at the Songdowon International Children´s Camp which was rebuilt into a palace of the world first class. The moment the ceremony was about to start, continued rain gave way to sunshine, and respected Marshal Kim Jong Un entered the compound of the camp. All the participants were excited and raised cheers.
During the events, he spent more than one hour´s time together with members of the Children´s Union with a bright smile on his face all the time. In the afternoon, sports and cultural events took place in the camp in congratulation of the inauguration of the Songdowon International Children´s Camp and Marshal Kim Jong Un also took part in the events together with members of the Children´s Union. The seesaw football game of children ended with 11-metre kick. After awarding ceremony, he had a photograph taken with the winner children´s team of South Hamgyong Province. The footballers of South Phyongan Province envied the winners.
Reading their minds, Marshal Kim Jong Un had a photograph taken with them as well. When he was leaving the playground, Pak Song, a student of the Pongsu Junior Secondary School in Wonsan City, Kangwon Province, who helped ensure the successful football game, rushed to him and requested him for a favour. The boy delayed his tight schedule.
But respected Marshal Kim Jong Un did not reproach the boy requesting for a photo session with them.
“OK, let´s have a picture taken.”
And he faced camera together with them, all in his arms.
That day the football game was followed by a performance of the famous Moranbong Band at the theatre of the camp, but regrettably the seats were not enough for thousands of members of the Children´s Union who watched the football game, to enjoy the performance.
Considering it, Marshal Kim Jong Un arranged the performance twice next day so that all the Children´s Union members could enjoy the performance.
When we came out after enjoying the performance in his presence, darkness set in and fireworks went off into the sky with a deafening roar. The mysterious fireworks decorating the sky were an eruption of excitement of the Children´s Union members.
The celebration events held that day in the presence of respected Marshal Kim Jong Un at the Songdowon International Children´s Camp which was wonderfully built into a monumental edifice of the era of the Workers´ Party were a very precious occasion which enabled the members of the Children´s Union of our province, nay, all other members on this land, to feel heartily how noble and great his love for the future is. The members of the Children´s Union of our province will remember the day forever and never forget under what a warm care they were born and enjoyed all happiness and under what kind of concern they grew up.”
