On March 7, Juche 30 (1941), President Kim Il Sung gave a lecture to congratulate the women members of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army (KPRA) on the occasion of March 8 International Women's Day.

The DPRK people are still now remembering the women guerrillas who had fought heroically for the liberation of Korea during the anti-Japanese armed struggle.

Among those guerrillas is Choe Hui Suk who left a distinct trace in her life by keeping to the last her faith and constancy as a revolutionary.

Comrade Choe Hui Suk joined the KPRA in 1932 when the President founded it and had been infinitely loyal to the revolutionary duty.

In the first half of the 1940s, she was engaged in a small unit of KPRA conducting military and political activities to carry out the strategic task set forth by the President to greet the great event of Korea's liberation with full preparations. One day in February 1941, she was shot through a leg in a battle and captured by the enemy.

The enemy put her to brutal tortures to ferret out a secret. But, she never abandoned her revolutionary constancy even under such intolerable torture. Then, the enemy gouged out her eyes.

At that time, she shouted that she had no eyes, but she could see the victory of the revolution. Enraged by her shout, the enemy even carved out her heart.

Her shout that "Victory of the revolution is in sight" imprints in the minds of the rising generations the precious truth that absolute loyalty to the leader bears indomitable faith and the life of a revolutionary will shine along with the faith.
