The event known as "Mass Games", typical of the North Korean regime, has the participation of an army of extras, mainly students, who make elaborate choreography.
In the background, scattered in a sector of the bleachers at Pyongyang's First-May stadium, thousands of children display colorful posters to create mosaics.
But the new propaganda show, titled "People's Land," did not conquer Kim Jong Un.
After the performance, the leader "called the creators of the show and criticized the misguided spirit of production and his attitude of irresponsible work," said the official North Korean agency KCNA.
Recalling that artists "have a very important role in the cultural construction of socialism," Kim "has determined important tasks to correctly apply the Party's revolutionary policy in the fields of literature and art," the agency added.
It was not reported that caused the irritation of Kim, who attended the stadium next to his wife, Ri Sol Ju, and sister and counselor Kim Yo Jong.
