Anecdote about Kim Il Sung
Pyongyang, March 1 (KCNA) -- One day in January Juche 47 (1958), President Kim Il Sung visited the then Saenal Agricultural Cooperative in Sinchon County, South Hwanghae Province.

Arriving at the farm, he was guided to one of the newly built houses.

After learning about the construction of the house, he was very pleased that peasants would live in new houses. He then said he would spend a night in an unoccupied house.

Officials accompanying him were worried that he might have inconvenience in an empty house.

Next morning, the President told the officials that he felt the house was built well, with rooms properly heated and no cold wind coming from outside. He also said more houses should be built for peasants.

The officials realized why he stayed overnight in the empty house.
