North Korean media confirmed today that the mysterious woman lately seen in press photos with leader Kim Jong-Un is indeed the nation’s newest First Lady.
It’s not known when Lil’ Kim and North Korea’s Kate Middleton, Ri Sol-ju, officially tied the knot. But the announcement is notable; his father, the late Kim Jong-il, was a man who the NYTimes says “was known for marrying beautiful performers but who never introduced them to the public.”
Lil’ Kim apparently also has similar tastes in women as his father — Ri Sol-ju is a famous singer. Here, she is seen performing at the 2011 New Year Gala.
The marriage was announced after the two appeared together in a photo-op for the opening of Pyongyang’s amusement park.
