Kim Jong-un’s wife has made a sudden re-appearance in public after mysteriously disappearing for more than seven months…
Ri Sol-ju, has been spotted next to her husband at an air combat training competition, the Daily Mail reports.
The dictator gave advice to contestants – in particular to the Korean People’s Air Force and Defence – as his wife watched at his side.

Rumours had been flying that North Korea’s First Lady was pregnant or even that she had fallen out with her foreboding, leader husband.
Ri Sol-Ju, a former singer, has appeared only occasionally since July 2012, when she was referred to publicly, as ‘his wife, Comrade Ri Sol-ju’.
She previously attended the third anniversary commemoration of the death of Kim Jong-il in 2014, and last year she appeared at a football match at Kim Il Sung Stadium with what was rumoured to be a wedding ring on her finger.

Having not been seen since March 28, tongues have been busy wagging and speculations have been rife around the world.
Professor Toshimitsu Shigemura, an North Korean expert from Tokyo’s Waseda University, revealed his thoughts on the illusive whereabouts of Kim Jong-Un’s wife.
There are several possible reasons, including that she is pregnant or that there is some sort of problem between the two of them.
The academic also suggested she might have fallen out with the dictator’s extremely powerful younger sister, Kim Yo-jong.
The belief is that while Mr Kim lacks political ability, she is far more adept at the sort of manoeuvring that is required to keep him in power, so that is the task she has taken on.
Bizarrely, back in 2013, U.S basketball star Dennis Rodman said that Kim was a’ friend for life’ revealing the pair do in fact have a daughter called Ju-ae.

As she is a girl however, she cannot be an heir, so speculation is rife that they may be trying for a son.
Interesting developments to come out of the closed country, but we may know little more than that – at least for the foreseeable future anyway.
