North Korea is set to release a series of stamps featuring Kim Jong Un’s daughter, Kim Ju Ae, according to state media. The stamps, which will reportedly be released in March, will feature the 12-year-old alongside her father and grandfather, Kim Il Sung. North Korea’s state-run news agency, KCNA, released an article on Monday detailing the release of the stamps. The article did not specify the reason for the stamps, but it is not uncommon for North Korea to release stamps commemorating significant events or individuals.
Kim Ju Ae is the daughter of Kim Jong Un and his wife, Ri Sol Ju. She was first publicly mentioned by North Korean state media in June 2021, when she was described as being “born to the great joy” of Kim Jong Un and Ri Sol Ju. Her exact birthdate is not known.
The release of the stamps comes as North Korea continues to face economic challenges and international sanctions. The country’s economy has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and recent natural disasters, including flooding and typhoons.
Despite the challenges, Kim Jong Un has continued to prioritize his nuclear program, and North Korea has carried out several missile tests in recent months. The country has also shown no signs of returning to talks with the United States and South Korea over its nuclear program.
