Supreme leader Kim Jong Un's work "Let Us March Forward Dynamically towards Final Victory, Holding Higher the Banner of Songun" was released as a booklet by the Joseph Gebauer Publishing House on August 25.

The speech was made by Kim Jong Un at the military parade held to celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung on April 15, Juche 101 (2012).

It says the 100 year-long history of Kim Il Sung's nation clearly proves the immutable truth that outstanding leaders assure the dignity and prosperity of the country and the nation.

It sets forth the tasks to be fulfilled to glorify the dignity of Songun Korea for all ages and to successfully accomplish the cause of building a thriving socialist nation.

Kim was in the news recently when his alleged banker, Yun Tae Hyong, supposedly absconded with $5 million via Russia, and was seeking asylum in a third country.  This story has not been confirmed, originating solely from a South Korean daily newspaper.

Chung Yoo-Ra, the 20-year-old daughter of the woman dubbed South Korea's “Rasputin”, is one of the figures in the influence-peddling scandal that sparked massive street protests demanding the removal of President Park Geun-Hye.
Chung was detained in Denmark on January 1 for overstaying her visa, after South Korean authorities issued a warrant for her arrest. Seoul then sought her extradition.
The Danish Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions has said it needs more time to complete its processing of the case, and was waiting for the South Korean authorities to answer some questions.
“The detention has been extended until March 22,” a court spokeswoman told AFP. Chung has denied any wrongdoing.
The equestrian, who has reportedly bought horses and trained in Denmark in the past, has told police that she was in the country because of her involvement in the sport.
Chung's mother, a confidante of Park, is accused of using her influence to secure her daughter's admission to an elite Seoul university, with a state probe revealing the school had admitted Chung at the expense of other candidates with better qualifications.
The revelation touched a raw nerve in education-obsessed South Korea.
Several professors at Ewha Women's University, including a former school president, have been investigated for allegedly giving Chung preferential treatment.
