Woman who endured physical pain during Military Foundation Day performance praised for loyalty


A woman in Chongjin, North Hamgyong Province reportedly collapsed on Apr. 25 of this year after enduring appendicitis pain until the end of a Military Foundation Day celebratory performance. North Korean authorities have reportedly praised the woman for her loyalty to the country and publicized the incident widely.

“A woman who lives in Chongjin participated in a celebratory performance to memorialize the founding of the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army,” a source in North Hamgyong Province told Daily NK on May 4. “Even when she was faced with sudden sharp stomach pains, she succeeded in finishing her performance before collapsing… The provincial party has given the woman high praise for her loyalty and propagated the story widely.”

According to the source, the woman was in her early forties. She had prepared to participate in the performance for a month as a member of the Mobile Arts Propaganda Brigade of the Chongjin Socialist Women’s Union of Korea. However, the woman suddenly complained of severe stomach pain before going onstage on the day of the event.

Even though her lower abdomen hurt so much that it was difficult for her to stand up, the woman endured the pain long enough to walk on stage. She played her part in a group gayageum performance to the end as sweat poured down her face. When the performance was complete, the woman fainted behind her instrument and was transported to the hospital. .......
