To outsiders, North Korea can truly be an enigma. And though he's increasingly been stepping into the international spotlight, the country's reclusive leader still remains quite a mystery as well. He's not the only one, however. As a handful of publicly available photos show, Kim Jong Un's wife, Ri Sol Ju, should be another member of the family you know know about.
Historically, shielding the wives of North Korean leaders from the press has been par for the course. CNN reported that women married to Kim's father and grandfather were so rarely mentioned in the country's state media that their existences were sometimes not known until after they had died.
This is, of course, not the case for Ri Sol Ju, who has intermittently popped up in internationally published photographs for six years. But while she is somewhat of a constant fixture, smiling demurely in lightly-hued suits, the details of her life remain largely unknown to those on the outside. Photos of the couple offer few hints.
