One day in June Juche 36(1947) President Kim Il Sung arrived at the Mirim plain and took his way to a paddy field, saying that he was there to plant rice seedlings with farmers. At this moment, an official brought him a pair of boots.
Asking him if he saw the farmers booted to plant rice seedlings and saying that being bare footed was better for rice-planting, he pushed it aside and stepped into the paddy field.
When an official tried to plant seedlings in the place just before the President, he wore a bright smile and planted his seedlings there, saying that each people had to fulfill his shares as they came for rice-planting.
The President made the rice-planting so cheerful like this caring if the officials and farmers might feel uneasy around him.
