Hole Made in Raincoat

One day in September 1999 Chairman Kim Jong Il visited the Hamhung Disabled Soldiers’ Essential Plastic Goods Factory .
At the sample room he went to the place where raincoats of various colors were hung and raised the arm of the raincoat before looking at the armhole of the raincoat.
The Chairman, being lost in thought for a while and pointing at the holes of his summer shoes, told the officials to make holes in the armpit of the vinyl chloride raincoat in such a way of making holes in the shoes.
He also said that the holes will allow air to pass through it then to make it good for health and its durability, without the air holes the raincoat get so wet inside that the raincoat holds the body and people will like it to put on.
Later, the factory began to produce the raincoats with air holes as he said.
