Persons with disabilities in the DPRK who are bringing their talents into full bloom under the caring socialist policies are demonstrating their happy appearance in many international events.
Last July, Jon Ju Hyon and Kim Yong Rok won gold medals in the team event at the ITTF Asian Para Championships 2019 held in Chinese Taipei. They also participated in the ITTF Table Tennis Bangkok Open 2019 in August and defeated all their opponents 2-0 to win the first place in the team event.
The art group of the Korean Art Association of the Disabled gave an artistic performance in Beijing, China, in August.
Put on the stage were colourful numbers, such as sign-language poem ‘We Will Love Our Country’, mixed chorus ‘Our National Flag’, folk dance Janggo Dance and jugglery number ‘Mysterious Rope’.
Although the performers were those with seeing, hearing, and moving disabilities, they were as excellent as professionals in playing the musical instruments, dancing, and singing, which greatly moved the audiences.
