North Korea’s infamous leader Kim Jong Un is the subject of many North Korean press photos, seen giving talks, inspecting schools and farms and attending awards ceremonies.

He’s always surrounded by an entourage of acolytes, often senior military figures or government officials.

What’s most intriguing is what his entourage are doing in nearly every single photo they appear in with him.

They have notebooks open and pens out, ready to jot down any snippets of wisdom that the leader may bestow at any moment.

Here are some of the many pictures of Kim Jong Un and his trusty note takers.
