Kim Jong-un sheds tears as he delivers rare apology to North Korea over failings

The North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, shed tears as he issued a rare apology for his failure to guide the country through tumultuous times exacerbated by the coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking at a huge military parade held at the weekend to mark the 75th anniversary of the ruling Workers’ party, Kim removed his glasses and wiped away tears – an indication, analysts say, of mounting pressure on his regime.

“Our people have placed trust, as high as the sky and as deep as the sea, in me, but I have failed to always live up to it satisfactorily,” he said, according to a translation of his comments in the Korea Times. “I am really sorry for that.”

Doesn't NK claim to have had zero cases to date? Where's the "failure," exactly?

People don’t like to be locked down. So maybe he is sorry that he had to lockdown the country and for the tumult that a lockdown created.
