The attractive mystery woman who has appeared alongside North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in his recent public events has once again been shown on state television, fueling speculation she is Kim's wife.
The young, short-haired woman was shown on July 15 wearing a yellow, polka-dot dress and smiling as she stood close to the North Korean leader during a visit to a local kindergarten.
Media reports earlier in the week suggested the woman is a previously married pop star who had been romantically involved with the future leader a decade ago.
Some South Korean analysts have suggested the woman is Kim's wife and that her frequent appearances at his side are meant to create the impression of stability in the Stalinist state just months after the death of Kim's father and longtime Korean leader Kim Jong-Il.
