It's called Moranbong Band. This week it's going to China to promote "deepening friendship."

Kim is a big fan. He's known to get emotional at concerts.

He could be sending the band to get on China's good side before a U.N. human rights meeting this week.

The U.N. could refer Kim to the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity, but China (or Russia) could veto that move.
