These are sure photos of Kim Jong-un on horseback

Let's not think too deeply about this. Kim Jong Un took a photo shoot on horseback.

The dictator in North Korea drove the white hut through snowy fields, jumping between dusty trees, pausing for great smiles – I smile at the camera on the horse. His state-run media reported Wednesday that his eyes were "full of noble glitter."

While Mr. Kim has no shortage of apparently posed propaganda photographs, "world leaders on horseback" have been a very special genre at least since the famous Vladimir Putin's bare-breasted entry in 2009. That doesn't come every day.

The geopolitical impact of the news is limited. Unless you trust the state media in North Korea, who called Mr. Kim's ride up the Baekdu Mountains "a major event of major importance in the history of the Korean Revolution."

birthplace of the Koreans. The volcano that crosses the border with China and North Korea – the Chinese call it Changbaishan – is a central setting for North Korean propaganda, a place where soldiers go on pilgrimages to swear allegiance to their leader. North Korea insists that Mr Kim's father and predecessor, Kim Jong Il, was born in a wooden cabin there, despite proof that he was born elsewhere.

Anyway, Mr. Kim is riding through the forest.
