North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during a children's rally on Wednesday made his second public speech since taking power in December.
North Korean state media said Kim told some 20,000 children they will "lead the most powerful country in the future, where every home will be full of laughter."
Pundits say that Kim's two public speeches in only six months in power show that he is trying to differentiate himself from his reclusive father Kim Jong-il, who uttered only a single sentence in public during his 17 years in power.
