North Korea's young leader Kim Jong-Un is officially married. On Wednesday, the state TV of the Hermit Kingdom announced that Ri Sol-Ju, the mystery woman who has been seen with Kim for a few weeks, is his wife.
On Tuesday, the couple toured an amusement park but revealed no details about their relationship. Earlier this month, Ri was seen with Kim at a concert featuring Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters (which was bizarre in itself).
Although the woman hadn't been identified, the world speculated that she was his wife. Ri is not the pop singer Hyon Song-Wol, a North Korean pop star known for singing patriotic songs such as "Excellent Horse-Like Lady."
As expected, Twitter users have no mercy. Here are the 9 best tweets we've seen:
