It's Comrade Ri Sol-ju.

Suddenly identified as the wife of Kim Jong-un.
A singer with the same name has starred in several concerts in the past – in one case, performing a song with the apt title Do Not Ask My Name. But she is not the singer previously rumoured to have been Kim's companion, Hyun Song-wol, known for her hit Excellent Horse-like Lady.
There's some ear-shattering audio at all 3 of those links. I was alarmed at the first link by the forceful vocalizations of the female news reader.

Not bad.

Not horse-like, either.

She was using the universal tone and cadence for spreading propaganda. Used by carnival barkers, advertisement announcers, game show hosts, mouthpieces of totalitarian regimes, etc., etc.

Even were she to like the man, I can't imagine the hell her life will be for every domestic disagreement.

Let us not take even the tiniest baby steps to soften the image of North Korea's leadership. Would you fawn over pix of Eva Braun?

"Excellent Horse-like Lady"

Presumably, they'll be hearing from Camilla Parker-Bowles' attorneys.
