Victory For Invincible Songun Era Korean Art

It is a great priviledge of the whole Korean nation single-mindedly united as one single monolithic bloc of total loyalty for Dear Leader Comrade Generalissimo Kim Jong Il, brilliant statesman, political genius, prodigious humanist, prolific author, invincible strategist, and musical virtuoso to benefit from the dynamic cultural prowess of Songun Era Juche-based man-centered Korean-style socialism that pervades the whole perfect society with great invincible artistic achievements.

The story of Korean violinist Mun Kyong Jin of the Mansudae Art Troupe and his brilliant victory over the culturally pauperized US imperialists at the Kaneti International Violin Concours proves once more that Dear Leader Comrade Generalissimo Kim Jong Il is wholly deserving of the greatest admiration and esteem, reports the Korean Central News Agency :

Letter to Kim Jong Il from Winner of Int'l Violin Concours

Pyongyang, July 23 (KCNA) -- Leader Kim Jong Il received a letter Thursday from Mun Kyong Jin, violinist of the Mansudae Art Troup who won the Kaneti International Violin Concours held in Hungary. In the letter he wrote that though he is a son of an ordinary musician, Kim Jong Il took his immature music talent into consideration and bestowed upon him such favor as giving him an opportunity to study at Pyongyang University of Music and Dance to his heart's content.

Kim Jong Il saw to it that after the graduation from the university Mun could bring into full bloom his musical talent at the Mansudae Art Troupe, the highest institution of Juche art, and has led him to demonstrate the honor of Juche Korea on the international stage today, he wrote, adding:

I was not so sure of any success at the concours but I could emerge winner at the final stage without apprehension and hesitation as my will and courage were reinforced by my ardent longing for Kim Jong Il.

When asked how a young Korean with such short career and little experience as a musician could win the international concours despite his debut at the end of the final contest, I replied: I learned how to play violin at Pyongyang University of Music and Dance. Of course, I am a rising musician with little experience in contesting at international concours and a short career as a violinist. But I could win the concours this time as my faith and will to hold in high esteem Kim Jong Il only added to my talent and passion.

In the letter he vowed to make painstaking efforts, drawing on the experience gained in the concours, to become a violinist known to Kim Jong Il and Korea.

That should read "The Great Lodestar of the 21st century". I was sabotaged by neo-cons who are constantly spamming my computer.
