Story Told by Fork to Mangyongdae

On Kwangbok Street in Pyongyang, the capital city of the DPRK, there is the fork to Mangyongdae associated with the ardent patriotism of President Kim Il Sung.

The President left Mangyongdae at the early age of thirteen in January Juche 14(1925) with a great ambition to liberate the country but never forgot his home village even for one moment.

After achieving the historic cause of national liberation, he headed for a steel production base in Kangson at this fork road on October 9 Juche 34(1945), although his home village which he has not yet visited after his return to the homeland was near at hand.

The Korean people erected a monument to the revolutionary activities of the President at the fork to Mangyongdae in October Juche 59(1970) in order to hand down the noble virtues of the President who thought of the country before his home village.
