Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and first chairman of the National Defense Commission of the DPRK, who is inspecting the eastern sector of the front, enjoyed together with KPA service personnel a field performance given by the Moranbong Band to celebrate the August 25, the 52nd anniversary of leader Kim Jong Il’s start of the Songun revolutionary leadership.
Marshal Kim Jong Un appeared in auditorium together with his wife Ri Sol Ju.
Among the audience were senior party and army officials including Choe Ryong Hae, Hyon Yong Chol, Kim Kyong Hui, Jang Song Thaek, Kim Jong Gak, Hyon Chol Hae, Kim Won Hong, Ri Myong Su, O Kuk Ryol and Kim Chang Sop, commanding officers of the ground, naval, air and anti-air and strategic rocket forces of the KPA, commanders of the combined units in the eastern sector of the front, airmen and soldiers of the Kamnamu Company (a company under persimmon trees).
The performance began with the playing of the national anthem. Put on the stage were such colorful numbers as light music and song “Victors”, light music “Look at Us”, female quartet “You Are Mother”, and female sextet “We Sing of Party”.
The performers made an impressive artistic representation of the fact that it was thanks to the great exploits of Kim Jong Ilwho protected the destiny of the country and the nation and glorified socialist Korea as an invincible power with his Songun politics that there are the great tradition and heritage for carrying forward the cause of the Songun revolution, the basic blood vein of Kim Il Sung’s Korea.
The performance made the stage and auditorium prevail with enthusiasm and joy as it was characterized by a good harmony in all elements for musical representation and replete with revolutionary and militant spirit.
When female sextet “Song of Coastal Artillery Women” was presented, the soldiers of the above-said company mounted the stage and joined the performers in singing the song, strikingly demonstrating their stamina to deal retaliatory sledge hammer blows at the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces getting frantic in their war drills to block the advance of the DPRK.
Their repertoire also included new songs such as female solo and pangchang “Golden Cushion”, female quartet “Let’s Dash Ahead toward Morrow” and female duet and pangchang “Let’s Become Roots”.
The performance reached its climax when female solo and pangchang “Ardent Wish”, a new song reflecting the mind of all service persons and people wishing for the good health of Kim Jong Un, who is making a long journey of field guidance to KPA units, was presented and his benevolent image was projected on the screen.
The performance ended with female sextet “Our Leader Loved by People”.
