It is the first show in Pyeongyang to feature a cast of Disney characters and represented the debut of the Moranbong band launched by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Interview : Korean Central News Agency “First Secretary of the Workers’ Party and Chairman of the National Defense Commission and Supreme Commander, our Dear Leader, Kim Jong-un watched a concert by the new Moranbong band Friday”.This rare display of Disney characters once banned in the country for being too Western came about after Kim Jong-un’s plan to “bring about a dramatic turn in the field of literature and arts”, was announced and may represent a larger change in the leader’s policies.
Watching the show on Friday, Kim Jong-un and other North Korean officials applauded enthusiastically. After the concert, the young North Korean leader then said that he will actively push for open-door policies in a gesture showing his willingness to break from the reform-driven policies of his late father, Kim Jong-il.
Experts say that Kim Jong-un’s speech shows the young leader has a flexible attitude toward global trends which may be an attempt to demonstrate to the international community the country’s willingness to change. Kim Jong-un, educated in Switzerland during his teens, has reportedly initiated policies for children that contain elements of fun.
