Kim Ki Song, Anti-Japanese Juvenile Hero of Korea
Pyongyang, June 25 (KCNA) -- There is Kim Ki Song Hoeryong Secondary School in Hoeryong City, North Hamgyong Province, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Standing at the school is a statue of Kim Ki Song in a red necktie with a bugle in his hand.

Born into a revolutionary family in Hoeryong on February 9, Juche 10 (1921), Kim Ki Song embarked on the road of revolution in his early years with his sister Kim Jong Suk, well-known as an anti-Japanese war hero.

He took part in the harvest uprising in 1931 and the spring struggle in 1932, staged under the guidance of President Kim Il Sung. During the struggles he conducted such activities as scattering handbills, operation in the enemy's rear and communications.

After the death of his mother and elder brother's wife by the Japanese imperialists, he, together with Kim Jong Suk, entered a guerrilla zone to act a platoon leader of the Anti-Japanese Children's Corps and a bugler there.

When a punitive force of the Japanese imperialists attacked the guerrilla zone in early 1933, he led members of the Corps to throw stones at the enemies and blew a bugle to pep up the guerrillas and people in the fight against them.

On December 28, 1933 when some of the inhabitants in the guerrilla zone were exposed to danger by the Japanese imperialists' attack, he lured the enemies by blowing a bugle and died a heroic death at the age of 12.

Today three millions of members of the Korean Children's Union prepare themselves to be juvenile revolutionaries intensely loyal to the dear respected Kim Jong Un by creditably inheriting Kim Ki Song's feats and fighting spirit and the brilliant traditions of the Corps.
