It is said that Kim Il Sung, the former North Korean leader has met every North Korean during his lifetime. He paid hundreds of visits to villages, factories, schools, farms and army barracks in order to promote the communist cause. His son Kim Jong Il only visits his subjects on rare occasions, but great pictures are guaranteed when he does. Many rumours has serviced since 2008 that Kim Il Song would be ill or even dead. The North Korean government initially responded by publishing dated and even photoshopped photographs showing Kim in good health.

He inspected some production facilities, farms and military unites to reaffirm his health and show the world that he is still in charge of the country.
