North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un Is Married, State TV Says

North Korea’s new young leader, Kim Jong-un, is married, state media said on Wednesday, putting an end to speculation over the relationship with a woman seen at his side during a recent gala.

The announcement, which fits a trend the upbeat Kim appears to have taken to break out of the dour management style of his father, Kim Jong-il, came just two weeks after he was seen at the performance accompanied by the woman, with rumors swirling as to whether she was his wife, lover or sister.

Some observers in South Korea speculated she was a singer he dated years ago before his father put a stop to it, but who was now back on the scene.
