Moving to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or DPRK.
An artistic performance was held in Pyongyang on Wednesday to celebrate the just-concluded 7th Congress of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea.
More than 10,000 people watched the show, including around 3,600 party representatives who took part in the congress.
Four of the five members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee watched the performance, except for top leader Kim Jong Un, who was just elected as chairman of the WPK.
The ruling party's 7th congress opened last Friday, for the first time in 36 years. It was the first party congress since Kim came to power in late 2011.
The party congress not only mapped out a course for future development and mulled state and economic policies, but also became a chance to consolidate Kim's grip on power and strengthen the people's loyalty to the core leadership.
