DPRK state media reported on 14 October (Sunday) that Kim Jong Un (Kim Cho’ng-u’n) attended a commemorative photo session with students, faculty and administrators from the Mangyo’ngdae and Kang Pan Sok Revolutionary Schools, who participated in a joint anniversary meeting of the schools.  KJU’s last reported public appearance was his attendance of a concert by the Moranbong Band commemorating the official 67th anniversary of the foundation of the Korean Workers’ Party [KWP; WPK].  Attending the commemorative photo session were Mangyo’ngdae Revolutionary School alumni Choe Yong Rim, VMar Choe Ryong Hae, Kim Kyong Hui, Jang Song Taek, VMar Kim Yong Chun, VMar Hyon Chol Hae, Gen. O Kuk Ryol, Tae Jong Su and Col. Gen. Ri Pyong Sam, along with elder DPRK elites Mar Ri Ul Sol, Hwang Sun Hui and Mar Kim Chol Man.  Also in attendance were O Ryong Taek (Director and Principal of the Mangyo’ngdae Revolutionary School) and Ju Sun Ok (Director and Principal of the Kang Pan Sok Revolutionary School).

KCNA reported that Kim Jong Un “warmly congratulated the teachers, students and graduates of the schools on their 65th anniversary” and ” praised the schools for having brought up many people playing the core and pivotal role in the struggle for defending the country and achieving its prosperity over the past 65 years under the leadership and care of the great persons of Mt. Paektu.”  KJU “warmly encouraged the graduates from the schools who grew up nurturing the soul of Mangyo’ngdae, while drinking and breathing the water and air of Mangyo’ngdae, to successfully discharge their mission and duty as the pillars and core backbone (siltong) of the So’ngun (military-first) revolution as befitting the sons and daughters of the WPK.”

Prior to posing for the commemorative photographs, Kim Jong Un “expressed hope and conviction that the teachers, students and graduates of the schools would always fulfill their key role in the effort for inheriting and accomplishing generation after generation the revolutionary cause of Juche that started in Mt. Paektu,” according to KCNA.
