North Korean star

She's very famous in North Korea, and sang for the show. I shoot her backstage, she was very happy! Me too!

Those singers are like state artists.

They have to go in countriside to sing, in factories etc etc.

 

On april 15, birthday of the late Kim Il Sung, Mass dancing on Kim Il Sung Square. More than 100 000 "official" dancers are there, and for 1 hour, they will dance, by couple, sometimes not mixed ones. The audience is invited to join them...So i've dived in the crowd!

The music is performed by a live band, and all the songs are about Kim Il Sung.
