Look Who's Back: Kim Jong Un's MIA Wife
Ri Sol Ju, wife of Kim Jong Un, is seen for the first time this year as the dictator takes her to watch a soccer match.   (MediaF)

Someone's been taking that Beatles song "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" a little too seriously. But four months is a long time even by North Korean dictator standards, which may explain why pictures released by the country's state news agency show Kim Jong Un taking Ri Sol Ju out for a little public R&R at a soccer game in Pyongyang this week, NBC News reports. Ri Sol Ju, who hadn't been seen out and about since December, is shown laughing and clapping at the match, part of the 103rd anniversary bash of the birth of her husband's grandfather, Kim Il Sung. On her left hand, per the South China Morning Post: what appeared to be a wedding ring. (Sooo … what about that secret baby?)
