Well, we now know who the sexy mystery woman Kim Jong-un was spotted with at the big Disney concert this month was: His wife, Ri Sol Ju. North Korean media confirmed Kim Jong-un was married and identified his wife for the first time today. Now the real question: Is she hot?
The entire world hoped rumors that the woman was Kim Jong-un's married mistress were true, thus revealing Kim Jong-un to be the North Korean equivalent of the highly entertaining horn dog Italian ex-Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. Alas, buried deep in a Wednesday North Korean state media report on Kim Jong-un's visit to a resort was the revelation that the woman who has been seen with him at numerous public events was his wife. The two are rumored to have been married in 2010. Ri Sol Ju "studied science and is from an upper-class family, her father being a professor and her mother an obstetrician," according to the BBC. Boooring.
As North Korea analysts have debated the political ramifications of the announcement, Twitter has, of course, debated Ri Sol Ju's hotness. And Twitter says yes, she is hot:

So Kim Jong-un managed to find an attractive wife, despite sporting about 50 extra pounds and a haircut that hasn't been in style since the Dream Team. Just goes to show there's hope after all for all the chubby nerds with a nuclear arsenal and absolute power in their country.
