Big event in North Korea - level 2
Kim Il Sung was Kim Jong Un’s grandfather and the founder of North Korea. North Koreans celebrated the anniversary of his death. He died 20 years ago.
Kim Jong Un, of course, took part in the event. He walked on stage with a limp. The government highly controls the media in this isolated country, and it carefully hides anything unusual. Kim Il Sung had a growth on the back of his neck, so he could only be filmed from certain angles.
Difficult words: founder (person who starts something), limp (he walked with difficulty – there was probably something wrong with his leg), media (the news, radio, television, and newspapers), growth (formation of the body which is not normal).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
