Among the comrades-in-arms from the days of the International Allied Forces, who boundlessly admired Commander Kim Il Sung, there were Chen Lei and his wife Li Min.
Chen Lei, who had long admired the noble sense of obligation of the Commander for exerting unsparing efforts for the Chinese revolution, met him for the first time at a training base around Khabarovsk before working under his leadership.
At that time, Chen Li and broadcaster Li Min were plighted lovers, but they could not marry due to the narrow-minded view of commanding officers on military discipline and rule.
Being informed by anti-Japanese war heroine Kim Jong Suk of the matter, Kim Il Sung met with the commanding officers and told them that it is wrong that one cannot do revolution because of falling in love and genuine love can be fierce fire of mentality for the revolution.
Chen Lei said at the meaningful wedding ceremony which was arranged by the noble view on love and humanity of Kim Il Sung:
Availing myself of this significant opportunity, I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Suk who brought us happiness.
Our marriage is unthinkable apart from the comradely fidelity of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Suk.
Taking this opportunity, I firmly swear. Keeping in mind what this happiness provided for our couple by Kim Il Sung means, I will do my best for the friendship and victory of the two countries and two revolutions all my life.
And then the couple sang the song “Nostalgia”, an immortal work created by Kim Il Sung.
True to their vow, Chen Lei and his wife were loyal to Kim Il Sung throughout their lives and gave wide publicity to his greatness.
