Her absence sparked speculation about a possible pregnancy or health problems.

Ri Sol-ju, the wife of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, reappeared in public for the first time in a year, according to that country’s state press.

Ri attended a concert on Tuesday to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of her husband’s father, the late President Kim Jong-il.

In the past, Ri used to frequently accompany Kim on the most important occasions but since January 2020 she had not been seen in public.
