It happened when he inspected an island-defending unit.

He looked round the barracks, mess hall and guard post of the soldiers, dwelling houses of officers, school and kindergarten and posed for a photo with them, before he boarded a vessel to leave.

The soldiers, officers and their wives, shouting hurrah in tears, followed him. As he saw them jumping into the cold seawater, Leader KIM JONG UN got off the vessel and told them to come out, or else he would not leave.

He said repeatedly to the officers to order their men to come out.

He went aboard again after they all had come out.

Even God will be moved by such traits of him to embrace all the service personnel and people with warm love.
