A suit of padded clothes is preserved with care in the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun where the great leader Kim Jong Il is laid in state.
It is the only one that he wore until the last time of his life.
One year, recalling with deep emotion the days when he had to undergo severe trials, Kim Jong Il talked about the padded clothes he was wearing all of a sudden.
“I have put on these padded clothes since I started the arduous march after the demise of President Kim Il Sung. I am still wearing them as I cannot forget the history of harsh trials. These clothes are a symbol of the Songun revolution,” he said.
Indeed, the only padded clothes tell the history of devotion of Kim Jong Il for the country and people.
