Story of Kim Jong Il
Pyongyang, August 25 (KCNA) -- One August day in Juche 56 (1967), General Secretary
Kim Jong Il had his car stopped near the dam of the Jangjingang Power Plant during his inspection tour of rural communities in Yonggwang County, South Hamgyong Province.

Some workers rushed toward him. After receiving their bows, Kim Jong Il told them that the dam should always be kept in good condition as it was not only a valuable property of the county for power production but also an asset to be handed down to coming generations.

Lunchtime passed all too soon.

An official told him that it was time to leave.

Kim Jong Il, however, said that if they had left suddenly while having an interesting conversation, the workers would feel very sorry. He then suggested having lunch together with the workers, though he was very busy with field guidance.
