On July 1, Juche 102 (2013), the Korean scientists clearly understood the true meaning of “a golden cushion”, synonym for their blessed life.
Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un initiated a plan of building apartment houses for scientists and visited the construction site in the suburbs of Pyongyang. With parental love and affection, he said: It is said that a person who did a laudable job is seated on a golden cushion. I am going to build such wonderful houses as golden cushions for our scientists.
Golden cushion-like houses—this word represented the warm love of the Supreme Leader who tries to give prominence to scientists and technicians and take good care of them.
Under his careful guidance, the Unha Scientists Street was built.
Many houses, including those in the Unha Scientists Street and the Wisong Scientists Dwelling District, apartment houses for educators of Kim Il Sung University and Kim Chaek University of Technology, and those in the Mirae Scientists Street, have mushroomed as befitting the appearance of a civilized socialist country in a short period.
Today the scientists, researchers and lecturers of the DPRK are enjoying their happy life in “golden cushions”.
