One day in April Juche 93(2004), Chairman Kim Jong Il watched a combat exercise by soldiers of a unit of the Korean People`s Army (KPA).
When the exercise reached its height, rain drops began falling all of a sudden.
The Chairman proposed watching it outside the observation post when the rain started dropping. He said to officials how he could watch it inside the observation post when the soldiers were training outside in the cold rain.
How can they have the Chairman in the raining field together with young soldiers in the prime of their life?
With this view, the officials stood in his way. But, saying that he realized their worry about his health, he stressed that the Supreme Commander should also be exposed to rain when the soldiers trained in the rain.
