On August 23, Juche 38(1949) President Kim Il Sung visited a factory. He stopped paces in front of a worker who was busy at sparkled welding in the summer heat.
Looking at him and appreciating his busy work, the President held out his hand to the worker. He told him that his hand was greasy. However, warmly taking him by the hand, the President heartily uttered that he didn`t mind and his hand got greasy, too.
The President had always been with workers, so his hand had been a “greasy hand” throughout his lifetime.
