The photos were obtained after state TV broadcast a documentary recently on the life of Kim’s mentor – Hyon Chol-hae.
The film, entitled “Closest to the Sun,” includes several stills of the North Korean leader spending time with Hyon.
One image shows a young Kim in his early teens holding Hyon’s hand.
While in another, the dictator is pictured in his late teens at an on-site inspection with his father Kim Jong-il, his sister Yo-jong and Hyon.

Part of the film analyses how Kim gave detailed medical instructions on how doctors should treat Hyon’s “chronic heart disease” and “heart failure” between 2017 and 2021.
Despite being in hosptital “for a long time”, Kim’s adviser died last month.
Hyon Chol-hae was a central player in backing Kim as the “sole successor” to lead the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
A South Korean intelligence source has speculated that the aim of the film, “seems to be to encourage North Koreans to emulate Hyon, who was absolutely loyal to the leader even when Kim was a child”.
