Kim, the leader of North Korea, makes a rare appearance with his daughter.
Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, made his first public appearance with his young daughter, confirming long-circulating rumors that she existed.
He was joined by the girl, who is thought to be named Kim Chu-ae, at a Friday inspection of a significant intercontinental ballistic missile launch.
During the test, which was criticized by the US, the couple stood hand in hand.
Very little is known about Mr. Kim's personal life because he runs one of the most secretive governments in the world.
The two may be seen in several images released by North Korea's official news agency, KCNA, holding hands while conversing, meeting with officials, looking over missiles, and watching the launch from a viewing platform.
Analysts in North Korea have been far more intrigued by the reveal of Kim Jong Un's daughter than by the country's successful launch of its most potent intercontinental ballistic missile, estimated to be capable of hitting the United States.
Does this imply that she has been picked to succeed Kim Jong Un and will eventually rule North Korea? Yes, most likely. Given that this is a family dynasty, Mr. Kim will prefer one of his offspring to assume leadership.
Why show her off now? She is a really young woman. Could the fact that he is grooming her to take charge indicate that the 38-year-old leader is ill? Many theories surround his health, which is thought to be the largest threat to the continuity of the regime.
Her public unveiling at such an important event means that she will eventually contribute to the nation's weaponry development. Mr. Kim recently said that, in any case, he would not be handing up his nuclear weapons. This is a means of demonstrating to the world that his nukes will be in use much into the future.
The public appearance could be Mr Kim's way of showing "that the fourth generation of power succession is going to come through my [blood]line". But this was speculation, and the North Korean leadership did not confirm that it was indeed the leader's daughter.
According to experts, Mr. Kim could be the father of two girls and a boy, with Chu-ae being the oldest.
But the leader is incredibly private about his family; even Ri Sol-ju, his wife, wasn't revealed until after the couple were married.
