North Korea portrays Kim Jong-un as a confident, chummy new leader in footage aired on state TV Tuesday evening.
In the footage, Kim Jong-un looks happy and smiles several times when talking with field commanders during his first official public activity since he became North Korean leader. Kim visited the 105th Seoul Ryu Kyong-su Guards Tank Division last Sunday.
Kim is also seen whispering confidentially to officers and soldiers.
When an official photograph was taken, the soldiers standing on both sides of Kim Jong-un appear so overwhelmed with emotion when he holds their hands that they look close to tears.
