Why Kim Jong-un's 10-year-old daughter is considered the future leader of the DPRK and what is wrong with her appearance
Recently, the media have been increasingly suggesting that the daughter of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will become his successor. According to some reports, she is only 10 years old, but the schoolgirl is already leading an active public life.
Kim Ju Ae is the only heiress with whom the dictator has appeared in public, although he is allegedly raising at least three children. OBOZ.UA decided to find out more about the child, who is already predicted to become a key political figure in the country (to see the photo, scroll to the bottom of the page).
Since the age, biographical details, and faces of many members of Kim Jong-un's family are strictly classified, observers have made assumptions about the three heirs and even the years of their births based on the sudden disappearance of Lee Sol-ju, the dictator's wife.
Yes, it is said that in 2010 she gave birth to a son, and in 2012-13 Kim Ju Ae was allegedly born. The dictator's youngest child must now be about 6 years old.
In the local press, the girl is referred to as the "Noble Child," "Honorable Child," and "Favorite Daughter." This assumption is also supported by the eloquent fact that it is forbidden to name girls Kim Ju Ae in the DPRK. Previously, such a ban applied only to the name of her father.
However, there is a nuance that is troubling some media outlets. It is reported that many experts do not believe that Kim Ju Ae is only 10-11 years old. They say she looks much older than her age.
As the tyrant has recently been taking his daughter with him to important meetings and business trips, the public is convinced that she is being taught to rule the country from an early age. The girl was first reported in November 2022, and since then, the DPRK leader has stopped hiding Kim Ju Ae from the public.
It should be added that the leader of the dictatorial country is currently only 39 years old, so it is too early to think about his successors. However, despite this, locals are confident that one of the tyrant's children will become the next leader of the DPRK.
Earlier, OBOZ.UA also wrote about Kim Jong-un's wife, who accompanies her husband and conducts independent activities. Only in the summer of 2018, the country's official press stopped calling the woman simply Comrade Lee, and she got a new title - "Dear First Lady".
