Meet Ri Sol Ju, Kim Jong Un’s New Wife

The marriage has finally been confirmed by North Korean state media, weeks after photos of the couple first emerged. Congrats, big guy!

In a televised report about Kim Jong Un touring an amusement park, North Korean media referred to his nearby lady friend as “wife, comrade” Ri Sol Ju, according to the Associated Press. The first couple of North Korea have already appeared at events together, but this was the first time she was actually identified.
