The report said in English that the hike had prompted Kim to recall "emotion-charged days when he realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force without yielding even a moment."

On the second day in a new job, a table of wealthy, suited men said they would "buy her" off her manager so she could eat expensive steak with them.
