Ri Chun Hee, North Korea’s most popular female TV personality, delivers news about missile detonations with such fervor and excitement like no one else can.
Those who have been following recent news about North Korea may have caught a glimpse of the cheery 74-year-old usually donned in pink Korean garments.
Known to many simply as the “pink lady” due to her usual wardrobe of choice, the passionate Korean Central Television (KCTV) broadcaster is the regime’s official bearer of major news announcements.
While already retired, she is often tapped by the government to read major headlines. She is often beaming with smiles when she relays the country’s bomb-related news in her booming voice.
Her latest appearance was on Sunday when she announced North Korea’s successful test of a reported hydrogen bomb.
While the news may sound terrible elsewhere, in North Korea it is a reason to celebrate, and Ri’s delivery is usually helpful in getting the nation excited about such developments.
According to CNN, Ri’s celebrity status in Pyongyang is so lit that a mere image of her can cause crowds to stop and applause.
A former actor, Ri is also popularly referred to as “the people’s broadcaster”. It was State founder Kim Il-sung who reportedly persuaded her to channel her acting skills through passionate speech reading.
As these days passed, her voice grew to have an appeal so that whenever she would speak on the news, viewers were touched. When Ri announced reports and statements, enemies would tremble in fear.
Still, not much is known about the pink lady, other than she was born to a poor family in 1943 and studied performance art at Pyongyang University of Theatre and Film.
In the span of her over 40-year career, Ri only wavered her strong demeanor twice: when telling the country of Kim Il Sung’s death in 1994, and then of Kim Jong Il’s death in 2011.
