Essential Place

One day in May 2012 General Secretary Kim Jong Un visited the People’s Open-Air Ice Rink under construction.
He made rounds of various places of the ice rink to acquaint himself with the construction.
He asked of the officials about the depository of skates.
When he was told of the depository of skates, he again asked about an edge sharpening room.
Reading the mind of the officials who failed to offer a single word in reply, he said the open-air ice rink is a public skating rink so it is necessary to build a place where skates are given out as well as a place with an edge sharpener.
