DPRK state media reported on 28 January (Tuesday) that Kim Jong Un (Kim Cho’ng-u’n) attended a commemorative photo-op with officers and service members of Korean People’s Army [KPA] Unit #323.  Also in attendance were Gen. Ri Yong Gil (Chief  of the KPA General Staff), Lt. Gen. Kim Su Gil (Vice Minister of the People’s Armed Force), Gen. Ri Pyong Chol (Commander of the KPA Air and Anti-Air Force), and Hwang Pyong So (Deputy Director of the Korean Workers’ Party [KWP] Organization Guidance Department).  According to KCNA, he “guided the tactical exercise of the unit on Jan. 18 and 21 and highly appreciated it as a very successful one, promising the unit to have a photo taken with the service personnel who participated in it.”  He expressed “expectation and belief that they would further intensify their training in the future, too, just as the anti-Japanese guerrillas did in Mt. Paektu and thus prepare themselves as a-match-for-a-hundred fighters ready for an actual war.”
